Official Art for the “Songs of Zelda” Kickstarter by Feri Gonzales

If you’re a fan of quality video game music and aren’t familiar with the name “Eimear Noone,”  you should be. Whether you’ve listened to the soundtrack of

World of Warcraft (for which she composed) or the Zelda Symphony 25th Anniversary CD, seen her conduct for Symphony of the Goddesses, Video Games Live, or even in The Dublin International Game Music Festival (iDIG Music Fest) she created, you’ve been exposed to her incredible musical skill and passion for video game music. 

Despite the wide breadth of her musical involvements, Noone has returned yet again to

The Legend of Zelda in order to unite her passions for the iconic video game franchise and her Irish heritage which she holds closely to her heart – a winning combination, according to the hundreds of backers supporting her latest endeavor: “Songs of Zelda: A Link to the Celts”…

Irish composer and conductor Eimear Noone and the Dublin International Game Music Festival are collaborating on a new Zelda fan album titled Songs of Zelda: A Link to the Celts. This album will feature various Zelda tunes performed by the DIT Irish Traditional Music Ensemble, mixing the themes we all love with traditional Celtic sounds. If this collaboration has you the least bit excited, you can now back its Kickstarter and help this amazing project become a reality…

For those of you not yet familiar with composer and video game arranger Rozen, he had previously arranged Majora’s Mask: Waiting for the Dawn and Harmony of Heroes. Fans of his work and Zelda music in general will and want to keep an ear out for his latest mini-album titled, King of Light and Shadow coming this July. Unlike his most recent Singles of “Fi’s Farewell” and “Midna’s Lament“, this mini album focuses on the darker themes from that of…

The influences of ancient folklore, myths, and legends on the Legend of Zelda series is immense. Surroundings contain elements from celtic stories, our beloved desert areas contain nods to middle eastern culture, and some dungeons are even designed to look like ancient symbols of good fortune. The influences even…

As an avid fan of Twilight Princess‘ soundtrack, I was pleasantly surprised to find that one fan from Sweden has created his own rendition of both Midna’s Theme and the Twilight Princess Trailer Theme, classical acoustic style…

Live in New York City and haven’t had a chance to see the Symphony of the Goddesses tour yet? Here’s some good news: it’s coming to the Nintendo World Store!

In a press release earlier today, Jason Michael Paul Productions, Inc. revealed that the Nintendo World Store will play host to a special Symphony of the Goddesses event on September 4th at 6PM. The event will consist of an ocarina demo by David Ramos (AKA DocJazz), a live musical performance by a string quartet from the Zelda Symphony…

In any Legend of Zelda game, there are few opportunities for a hero to relax and enjoy the peace of mind that comes from a lack of enemies trying to do him harm. Of the handful of locations that actually afford this, Kakariko Village is perhaps the most well known, so it comes as no surprise that its iconic theme has been adapted to a smooth jazz arrangement. Jazz musician Insaneintherainmusic, also known as Carlos, has composed a version of the relaxing melody set to jazz piano, saxophone, bass, drums, and vocals – yes, there are even lyrics…

“The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses – Master Quest” has continued its run throughout Europe and North America over the last few months. With each performance that takes place, we hear about the amazing experiences the symphony offers from many satisfied fans. But exactly what goes into making this symphony event a reality? News site VentureBeat recently chronicled the history of “Symphony of the Goddesses” and the extensive planning process just one show needs to go through…

Video game music is no stranger to fan recreations. Whether it’s Smooth McGroove and his many acapella renditions of video game music, or something like “Wind Waker Unplugged,” video game music sees its share of creative re-imaginings. Donal Hinely has put his own spin on the classic Zelda theme, playing with his hands on glasses of water…

If gameplay is the heart of all video games, then music represents the hands massaging you as you continue to play. (How hard they press into your skin depends on what game you play though.) The emotions it gives us vary between each human being and remixes are a great way to express those to us. This album in particular is sure to have some familiar Zelda tunes for any fan to enjoy, all while supporting a good cause. To…
