92 Keys Launches Video For Their Unique Cover Of Academy Award Winning Song “Falling Slowly”

Falling Slowly won an Oscar in 2008 for best original song, and in 2016 has been reinvented anew by the piano and violin duet 92 Keys, with a new music video on YouTube.

Once is a unique film that has been turned into a successful musical, and features soulful original music written by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, who also star. Their track “Falling Slowly” won the Academy Award for best original song in 2008, and has continued to be a popular track with a huge range of people, thanks to its tragic romantic quality. 92 Keys are a similarly unique duet, playing Violin and Piano with new and unique interpretations on famous songs. Their latest release is a cover of Falling Slowly, which is accompanied by a new music video for the track on YouTube.

Their original arrangement of the song uses the piano and violin to complement one another and provide a sweeping, classical feel to the original folk song. The original arrangement for the Falling Slowly - Cinematic Piano/Violin Cover was created by pianist Trevor Loucks, and features rich textures and emotional playing from both musicians.

The duo filmed the music video in Silver City, Idaho. An old 19th century mining town, it provides a picturesque and evocative backdrop that nevertheless speaks to the desolate spaces featured in the original film, in a new and novel way. The video can be seen now on the 92 Keys YouTube Channel.

Trevor Loucks of 92 Keys explained, “This Falling Slowly cover is my favorite song we have produced to date. Songs with a simple and rich melody are inherently more powerful to me than technically complicated pieces.”
