IGN Interview with Lindsey Stirling

DaveyDecember 3rd, 2012 by Davey

Many of you may already know who Lindsey Stirling is, an exciting violinist who achieved huge popularity within the gaming community after doing numerous video game medleys. Some of her her most popular videos include a violinist’s take on the Skyrim music, and of course, a Zelda medley. Due to her popularity, IGN recently was able to snag a short interview with her. Hit the jump to see the interview!

Firstly, for a little bit of context, here is Stirling’s Zelda medley video from November 26th of last year. In the video, she adorns a blue tunic, equally appropriate to the green variety. The music selection for the medley is familiar, thought the violin interpretation is all but typical.

Next, the short IGN interview gives some insight to the reasoning behind the style of Stirling’s videos, such as how she will create an original composition only if she can dance with the tune. The video is not the most informative, though it is interesting, and may perhaps answer some lingering questions long time fans had.

    She probably has the WILDEST sex in the world.

    • Chris

      What makes you say that?

        The way she dances. Imagine that on top of you.

          HA. I shamelessly must admit to also thinking the same thing a while back.

        • http://twitter.com/mikejcsauer Mike Sauer

          Go look at her song “Shadows”. You’ve probably already seen it

        • Darkgreyfire

          And after that comment, I can make a safe assumption that is what you’ll be doing your entire life. Imagining.

    • Kablamogroup

      Good luck finding out for yourself.

    • IMFWeirdo

      I remember when she was on america’s got talent, she said she was mormon, and that she had really high moral values. I kind of look up to her as someone who is morally upright and an exciting performer at the same time (rare combination these days) so i seriously hope you’re wrong. But i’m not going to be as naive to defend her, because I don’t know her in person and popular celebrities usually start out “innocent” and “pure” but fall down the moral gutter eventually. But I hope she’s different!

      • Ninty

        lol Well, I honestly think some of those popular celebs get all jacked partly because of their high level of fame and Hollywood culture. Lindsey isn’t anywhere near that level of stardom, and in her line of work, the most that would probably happen (which is still very unlikely) is she falls in love and makes love before marriage.

        • IMFWeirdo

          true, true ^_^ i was going to cite bieber (lol), who started out as a really “good” kid but got caught up in the whole hollywood madness. Lindsey’s pretty far away from that but i still think that there’s some “danger” in being a relatively popular youtube musician with millions of views per vid. I’ve been saddened by people and celebrities in the past who perform better as they build up their careers but gradually lead messier lives. I’ll be her fan as long as she keeps her “innocence” under the considerable pressure, i honestly think that’s the most attractive thing about her, just look at her in the zelda medley prancing in the snow like a little kid :D

      • Anonymous

        Well, I’m a Mormon too, and I know that she is. We do have high moral values, and I know that as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as we’re rightly called, we do respect those values and aren’t going to easily fall down the wrong path.

        • Elohym

          high moral values such as Elohym having sex with Joseph’s woman in order to make Jesus? Or like men being able to marry seven wives but not vice versa? Yeah, that’s some high morality right there.

          • Defendedclone

            Here is not a place to attempt to force your opinion on another. People can have different opinions on things than you, and just because you don’t think that it’s right, doesn’t mean that it isn’t right.

            Try to have some empathy?

    • Darkgreyfire

      That’s pretty deep, you should become a poet when you grow up…If that ever happens.

  • metalligimp

    She looks like she’s having fun doing these…and is a great player :-)

  • Nathaniel Rump-Janc

    What’s that in my pants????

    • gamer

      said the virgin

  • KHT

    Lindsey is part of the few sources that brought me into the Zelda universe, so yeah, I knew her before this :D

  • Zoë

    Seriously people? Stop with your stupid inappropriate comments. Lindsey is an amazing violinist. She works hard all the time to make her videos the best they can be. She inspires people to do what they love. Show some respect why don’t ya.

          • Wind waker Link

            Stop making stupid comments like that. she is awesome, yes, but that dosn’t mean that you should make stupid comments like this.

    • person

      Yes, I really makes me mad when people make stupid comments like that.

  • Person

    If I could do what she does, but with a bassoon, I totally would.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jordan.dipalma Jordan DiPalma

      If you ever pull that off, send me the link. I’d support a talented dancing bassoonist any day.

  • linkasourous

    Omg I absolutely love Lindsey Stirling’s music! Especially her dub step ones. Her video game/movie tracks are really inspirational. Great music to listen to while you’re supposed to be doing homewo- I MEAN….while you’re doing your homework

  • Miles Edgeworth

    She called us gamer nerds. Is that a good thing?

    • http://www.facebook.com/jordan.dipalma Jordan DiPalma

      It was an endearing use of the term.

    • Princess Zelda


    • Wind waker Link

      that is very much a good thing, though, I am a Gamer Geek, not a Gamer Nerd.

  • Princess Zelda

    I have watched EVERY one of her videos. The Zelda Medley, of course, is my favorite. Assassin’s Creed 3 next to that! I love how she does her music!

  • Alberto Mani

    She definitely is a very enthusiastic person that plays violin really well. But watching a video of her dance while playing music seems jarring to me. Not for me I guess.

  • baileygirl99

    This girl is an amazing violinist. She is just incredible

  • Gage

    I prefer video game enthusiast.

  • Ninty

    She has such an Elf face. The stereotypical kind people draw and stuff.

  • Aaron hill

    i have to admit i cant decide what my favorite song of hers is and ive been watching her videos for a while.
