Andy: How did you get to the idea of adding a Pirates of the Caribbean Medley?

Mark Jansen: Pirates is a tune that is well known around the world by now. It was a pleasant surprise for the listener to have some scores between the traditional classic pieces we performed. Pirates was spectacular during the live performance. Also on the album it stands out.

Andy: Who transformed the score?

Mark: Yves (Yves huts is the Bass guitar player of Epica).

Andy: Was it difficult to transform the Pirates music to a rock version?

Mark: No, the pieces are very accessible and gives multiple option and possibilities to create something beautiful out of it. Obviously you need the necessary experience, but after all the years we acquired this and are able to put our hands on this classic. There is a rhythm at the end of the medley that gave us some headaches, but we got it done.

Andy: Why can we only find the Pirates Medley on the European version of the new CD?

Mark: Walt Disney isnt easy when it comes to copyrights. In the USA the copyright system is different as in Europe. Nuclear Blast (the music Label) didnt want to take any risks and wanted to avoid a claim from Disney in the US. However, as this is a one to one translation from classic to rock (We used the original medley and used the themes in the same order without adaption) it is no problem to release it on a European market.

Andy: What else can we expect on this CD?

Mark Jansen: You can find pieces from Vivaldi, Verdi, Prokofiev and Händel on the CD, but also compositions from Star Wars and Spider-Man. The CD has the full recording of the live performance in Hungary with Epica and the Orchestra. The CD will be well worth it. It has costs us blood, sweat and tears and more then 6 months of preparations and a total of more then 1 year of hard work to get this CD on the market.

Andy: I am very happy there is a CD coming out of this one time show. I found it a shame I could not be there on the live performance. Now that the CD will be available I can play it until the CD is broken. (Something I managed with the Phantom Agony CD, so I had to get a second CD of it)

Mark; That is something we like to hear.
