Web Sighting

If your taste in music skews more Mario, Sonic and Zelda than Beethoven, Bach and Mozart, we’ve found a site sure to get your thumbs tapping. Nineteen-year-old Martin Leung (aka The Video Game Pianist), a sophomore at the Cleveland Institute of Music, has performed at the Hollywood Bowl on the Video Games Live tour and has had 40 million people visit his Web site — www.videogamepianist.com — to check out the accomplished classical pianist’s intricate recreations of video game tunes. Whether you were addicted to “Super Mario Brothers” on the old-school Nintendo Entertainment System or were glued to Final Fantasy X on your PlayStation2, there’s something here for your iPod. Leung can rip through the “Super Mario Brothers Theme” blindfolded too. (See it for yourself on the site.)
