  1. I definitely can, although I'm not certain what the purpose would be for that?? And thank you!
  2. Hey everybody! I've just completed a new orchestral arrangement. It's a Battle Medley from a number of Legend of Zelda games. It contains music from Skyward Sword, Twilight Princess and Ocarina of Time. The piece is a collection of music from Boss Battles, including a climax to the big Ganondorf fight, with some other incidental music thrown in to provide transitions. It was made with Sibelius 7 and NotePerformer. Please enjoy!
  3. Hello everyone! I have a new arrangement to post here. Sorry to have taken so long to post another upload, but so much has been going on this summer, so please bear with me! This is an arrangement for full Orchestra of the music to Rito Village from "Legend of Zelda - Breath of the Wild". I attempted in this arrangement to get the original music as accurately as possible, the first time it is played, and then, when it is repeated, the melody and thematic material are developed for full Orchestra, to capture the awe of the physical surroundings of the Village in its mountainous setting. The link to the piece on Soundcloud is below:
  4. Hi there everyone! Sorry for the brief hiatus! Here is another Piece: A Meditation for Orchestra and Chorus, entitled "A Vision of Fi". It is an arrangement of a few Soundtracks from the Legend of Zelda Series. The whole piece is centred around The character Fi from Skyward Sword, who is the spiritual essence of The Master Sword, the weapon Link uses to defeat Ganondorf/Ganon in many of the games in the LoZ Series. The music starts off with the introduction of the original Zelda theme, and moves on to a quieter section where the Ballad of the Goddess is played, and then onto Fi's theme in its entirety, then throughout a number of pieces from various other games, all the time, with Fi's theme being played in the Flutes high above the music, as a reminder that while Link has the Master Sword on his many adventures, Fi is always there, and will always be synonymous with The Master Sword, created by the Goddess Hylia to destroy Demise and his incarnation, Ganon/Ganondorf.
  5. Hi everyone; newest remix here. I've tried to make the strings sound a bit more natural in this one, hence the hiatus in trying to get it just right, but aside from the sound, I devoted this piece to exploring and developing only a couple of thematic ideals; primarily Zelda's Lullaby. It's a Fantasia for Full Orchestra and Chorus, which contains material from a few of the Game Soundtracks in the LoZ series. I explored the different ways the Lullaby could be orchestrated and manipulated in terms of mood, timbre and contrapuntal manipulation, not just on its own, but with other themes closely associated to Zelda, most plainly in the central part, focussing on the endless relationship between Zelda, Link, and Ganondorf/Ganon throughout the whole series, and finally culminating, through its triumphant ending, the ultimate victory of good.
  6. Hey everybody - new piece here! This is an arrangement for full Orchestra, and it's entitled "All my Friends". It contains music from a few different game soundtracks in the LoZ Series, namely the themes of some of the more memorable characters: Saria and Sheik from Ocarina of Time, Midna from Twilight Princess, Linebeck from Phantom Hourglass, and Sidon from Breath of the Wild. The piece begins with a hazy chord from the strings, over which the melodies of the themes used are played together by the woodwind instruments. The piece is a slow, meditative arrangement, reflecting on the impressions that I (and most others no doubt) have had of the characters whose themes are included in the piece; mysterious for Saria, mournful for Midna, ethereal for Sheik, tragic for Sidon, and a lively end from Linebeck.
  7. OK, the video has been re-uploaded with a few edits and changes to the sounds, particularly in the strings.
  8. When you say this, do you refer to the orchestration of the piece or the Sample sounds made when I put it through NotePerformer??
  9. Hey everybody, got a new arrangement here. This is an arrangement for full Orchestra, entitled "On the Sea, the Land and in the Sky", containing music from a few games in the Legend of Zelda Series. After a brief introduction, where some of the themes are introduced, the music starts off in grand fashion with The Great Sea from Wind Waker. Afterwards, there is a transition to a calmer, pastoral and serene collection of tunes from Hyrule Field from Ocarina of Time, before the music builds up and concludes with a big, powerful rendition of The Sky from Skyward Sword. Also made through Sibelius 7 and NotePerformer. Hopefully, the strings don't sound so artificial!!
  10. Hiya everybody, hope you all had a good New Year! Posting my third upload here - It's a meditative Orchestral Arrangement of the Song of Healing from Legend of Zelda - Majora's Mask. The link to the Soundcloud page is below. Tried to make some changes to the sound in this piece, especially in the strings. Brass sounds a bit too artificially bright, but then that's NotePerformer. Will be putting it through a Sample Library when I get one connected to my Kontakt!
