Tag: Zelda Reorchestrated

Between Twilight Symphony, Symphony of the Goddesses, and plenty of other goodies, us Zelda fans have been completely spoiled in the last few years—but there’s no such thing as too much symphonic Zelda music. The latest update for Nintendo Underdogs Reorchestrated, a fan project that promises incredible symphonic arrangements of a wide range of Nintendo tunes, features a familiar fan-favorite Zelda melody in full orchestral glory.

If you like what you hear, you can head over to the Kickstarter and lend a hand! There’s sure to be plenty more great Zelda content on the actual album, so if you want to hear more from NUREO, consider making a pledge. There are only six days left to fund the project, so if you want to see it through, act quickly!

Zelda Reorchestrated is one of the greatest parts of the musical Zelda fanbase, and one of my favorite Zelda tracks, Dragon Roost Island, is perfectly orchestrated by the team. For some reminder of what the original The Wind Waker theme sounds like, check out this video before reading on. Zelda Reorchestrated actually has two versions of the theme, their original orchestration and a redux, and both have their merits. So hit the jump to listen!

Twilight Symphony released earlier this year to great praise among the Zelda community. Arranged and produced by the fantastic team at the Zelda Reorchestrated, Twilight Symphony reimagines the original soundtrack from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess as a sweeping cinematic score.

The ZREO team streamed the entire Twilight Symphony album as a three-hour music video, complete with game footage to accompany the story being told by the music, in early May 2013 after premiering the video at MAGFest in January. Now, the ZREO team is uploading the gargantuan production to YouTube track by track.

Alone the music is phenomenal, but accompanied by in-game footage, there’s no better way to re-experience the story of Twilight Symphony. Head past the jump to see the music video for “Overture,” and head over to ZREO’s YouTube channel to catch up on the Twilight Symphony footage. Don’t forget to subscribe in order to stay up-to-date on all the new releases!

Just recently the team at Zelda Reorchestrated released their album, Twilight Symphony, on YouTube. Included are orchestrated tracks of songs from Twilight Princess, along with a professional Hollywood choir. Not to mention vocal talent from several live soloists, including Aubrey Ashburn from titles like Dragon Age 2, and Devil May Cry 4. Hit the jump to see the video.

As most of you know, Zelda Reorchestrated (ZREO) has been showing their love for the series by producing beautiful symphonic performances of various Zelda scores for almost a decade now.  Unfortunately, that time has come to an end, and ZREO is ending their fantastic musical journey.  We here at Zelda Dungeon are woeful that this experience has ended so suddenly, and would like to give a personal thanks to the team of Zelda fans who worked on creating beautiful recreations…

Our mission statement has always been: “At Zelda Reorchestrated, we are committed to lush symphonic performances of the greatest songs from The Legend of Zelda™ as they would have sounded from the warm halls and intimate expression of a live philharmonic. We do not seek profit or fame. We simply love Zelda and wish to share its inspiration on all of us with all of you.”

Zelda Reorchestrated has been a wonderful project from some of the most talented fans and musicians for nearly ten years now, culminating with the release of Twilight Symphony, one of the most impressive fan projects that gaming has ever seen. Today, however, the Zelda Reorchestrated team is preparing for one last goodbye as they part ways an move on to bigger and better things. Head inside for more information.

Twilight Symphony is the latest effort by the Zelda Reorchestrated team, who have collectively been slaving away for five years now to arrange and produce the biggest fan-made album gamers have ever seen. Twilight Symphony is an orchestral retelling of the events that take place in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess by arranging the soundtrack of the original game as a full symphony rife with motifs and teeming with heart and soul. Beyond taking the listener on a voyage from Link’s humble agrarian beginnings to the final moments of his heated struggle against the Demon Thief, Twilight Symphony explores dozens of secondary and tertiary characters’ own journeys and their effects on Link himself.

The Zelda Reorchestrated team has yet to announce a date for the album’s digital release, but you can subscribe to the Twilight Symphony mailing list to find out as soon as one is announced.

Past the jump, you’ll find a full review of Twilight Symphony followed by a closer examination of the tracks and Zelda Informer’s exclusive preview of this incredible album. Without further ado, let’s begin!

If you haven’t been living under a rock, you should know that Zelda Reorchestrated (ZREO) has almost released their enormous Twilight Symphony project. In fact, it was supposed to be released by the end of November, but there’s a good reason why that date’s been pushed back to mid-December. Nintendo is now on board. After a good deal of sorting through legal mumbo-jumbo with ZREO, the album should be good to go around mid-December. Hit the jump for more!

Zelda soundtracks are always a delight to listen to and many fans are most likely hoping that Nintendo will release a new CD from Symphony of the Goddesses which has been considered a great success across the North American continent. Zelda fan site Link’s Hideaway gained the privilege of chatting with Zelda Reorchestrated project director Eric Buchholz and asked a very important question about if there was any possibility of a soundtrack becoming available in the near future. You can…

The guys over at ZREO (Zelda Reorchestrated) have a released a few sneak peaks from their Twilight Symphony album. Seeing that all four of them were being recorded in what sounded like a capella (a form of singing that covers all instruments through their voices), I rushed right over to check them out. It sounds just like the real thing, it is amazing what they are doing. Check out the videos after the jump!
