Christmas-y “Outset Island Theme”

DaveyDecember 6th, 2012 by Davey

You all should be familiar with YouTuber dummeh, or the Blake Robinson Synthetic Orchestra. Over the span of the channel’s existence, Blake Robinson has breathed new, orchestral life into classic video game tunes, various theme songs, and there exist many original compositions. But with the holiday season upon us, and Christmas just around the corner, Blake Robinson is giving some common melodies a holiday touch up, with the Outset Island theme a recent feature. Hit the jump to listen!

I honestly don’t know how he made it work. I’m sure to Blake Robinson this was a relatively simple piece, but the fact that I was brought to both Outset Island and a Christmas themed land tells a volume about this orchestration.

Also, if you’d like to listen to more of his work, there’s an enormous amount of listening content to listen to, some of it Zelda related, on his YouTube channel.

What did you think of the piece? Tell us in the comments!

      Well, I’m jealous. My school blocks Zelda Dungeon completely, so that I can’t even view the site. I’d be on here all day if it didn’t. XD

        Your school… BLOCKS ZELDA DUNGEON?!

        Good thing I’m home schooled then, especially considering the kinds of things that happen at my towns school, like teen pregnancy, marijuana smoking, etc.

    Want to make something sound christmas-y? Add sleigh bells, church bells, and a small choir.

    • Lupine Hero

      My band teacher said this, minus curch bells and choir, not two weeks ago!

    • npatoray24

      i dont want to be that guy, but it just sounds like bells are in the backround…

      • Rodney Williams

        I’m referring to pretty much anything that takes a normal song and makes it christmas theme. Not just this one :P

  • JononTomin

    If any of you are not subscribed to this guy, please do so. His music is pure quality! :D

  • MiniJen

    Awesome! This brought the biggest smile to my face! I already thought that Outset Island’s theme sounded a little christmasy but now, it just sounds like a perfect holiday tune! I love this!!! :D

  • TheMaverickk

    Just ad bells and a little carol like singing. It’s a good rendition.

    Still at the end of the day it’s just Christmas-y thanks to using sounds associated with Christmas. Still how they are blended together is superb.

  • baileygirl99

    That’s cool! All you really need to add are sleigh bells,some carolers, and Christmas-y type notes, and you got it!

  • itsameluigi1290

    Whoever made this is NOT a Dummeh.

    Get it? Because it’s… like… nevermind ;_;

    • Cmaster

      I see what you did there :]

      • itsameluigi1290

        Good, I thought no one understood what I was saying. THAT would’ve been embarrassing :P

        • Cmaster
