This might be the most meditative, introspective mix yet from RebeccaETripp, who eschews a steady drum beat for impressionistic, almost jazzy cymbals, paired with mixed world/folk instrumentation for a mysterious, contemplative tone:

"This is my arrangement of the "Lakebed Temple" theme from Legend of Zelda, Twilight Princess. The original composers for TP were Toru Minegishi, Asuka Ohta, and Koji Kondo. I use Ableton Live and a bunch of VSTs. :)

In this remix, I wanted to increase the overall sense of beauty and magic. The Lakebed Temple is a frustrating puzzle dungeon, and the atmosphere is sometimes a bit oppressive, however, it is also very sacred and visually gorgeous! I wanted to focus on that aspect a bit more. Twilight Princess is agreed to have the best dungeons.

The piccolo and pan flute parts were performed by Gamer of the Winds! I really like working with him. ^^"

Rebecca's collaborations with Gregory have been universally wonderful; may they continue unabated long into the future :) This has less form/rhythmic structure than even some of Rebecca's more mystical & meditative work, and functions as more of an exploratory drone/atmosphere than something procedural or narrative. Liontamer evaluated:

"Nice choice of themes to arrange. Rebecca's got the knack for substantial yet understated transformation in her arrangements, and this was no exception. With the additive assist from Greg, Tripp changed the mood of the source tune from spooky to mystical, so, short-and-sweet, I'd call her ambition with this piece a success."

As would I; not something you're gonna dance to (I mean, I'm not *stopping* you...) or sing in the shower, but a transporting, rich environment that achieves & explores its space thoughtfully. Excellent work from Rebecca & Gregory!

It has been a long time since I played Twilight Princess, so i had to go back and listen to the source in order to hear what has been done to this remix. It's good, its really good, but every time I have listened to it I have hit the end and tried to figure out why my computer stopped making sound. I want to listen to more of this, without repeating the song over and over :D
