OC ReMix Presents Mirror Image: A Link to the Past ReMixed!

August 7, 2017
Contact: press@ocremix.org

FAIRFAX, VA... Celebrating the 25th anniversary year of A Link to the Past's release in the U.S., OverClocked ReMix today released its 63rd free community arrangement album, Mirror Image: A Link to the Past ReMixed. Featuring 18 tracks from 18 artists, Mirror Image pays tribute to Nintendo's 16-bit masterpiece The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and is co-directed by OC ReMix veterans William "WillRock" Harby & Emery "DaMonz" Monzerol. The album is available for free download at http://mirrorimage.ocremix.org.

Mirror Image pulls together a talented roster of musicians honoring this legendary SNES score in a variety of styles, including EDM, orchestral, jazz, prog rock, and more. Mirror Image was made by fans, for fans, and is not affiliated with or endorsed by Nintendo; all games, characters, images, and original compositions are copyright their respective owners.

"The music of the Legend of Zelda games has always been an integral part of the game experience, even being able to play musical instruments in the games themselves." explained directors Harby and Monzerol. Acknowledging both the game and the soundtrack's enduring popularity, the directors felt an extra level of appreciation was warranted. "We felt that A Link to the Past deserved more attention than it already got in the game music community, since many of composer Koji Kondo's greatest and most iconic themes originated from this game," Harby and Monzerol elaborated.

The album's contrasting artwork -- illustrating the Light World and Dark World concepts introduced by A Link to the Past -- was designed by Canadian artist Annie Doyon.

Mirror Image marks OC ReMix's third Legend of Zelda series album, following 2010's Threshold of a Dream honoring Link's Awakening, and 2011's 25YEARLEGEND commemorating the franchise's 25th anniversary. The album is also Emery Monzerol's second directorial effort, following Super Mario RPG: Window to the Stars earlier this year.

"We set out to honour the legacy of the soundtrack while also staying true to the awesome diversity that defines the remixing community," affirmed co-directors Harby and Monzerol. "We hope you enjoy it!"
