Hi there, Universe! Long time no see, right? Well, I am back, and I have a couple of tracks that will make your Monday a bit more musical! Today we focus on winter in the Zelda universe, because it’s almost time for spring, so let’s ignore the inevitable change of seasons and pretend the sun that is blinding us when we leave our gamer-caves is covered by snowy clouds.
It’s no secret that I love me some Spirit Tracks, and recently I reorchestrated “Anouki Village’s Theme” into a less terrible song. I mean, there is something charming about Anouki Village; what with the magical half-raindeer-half-penguin guys waddling around and all that snow, right? Anouki Village is one of my favourite places to hang out in Spirit Tracks, solely because of the atmosphere. It’s a pretty bland place, and has pretty bad music if you ask me, but I think my interpretation might have solved that pesky music problem. After my masterpiece*, I found a delightfully new and inventive remix of the “Ice Cavern Theme” from Ocarina of Time that sounds like it should be playing in the world’s coolest Zelda lounge ever in the history of the world. Seriously, this remix is one of a kind and is spectacular. Hit the jump to hear both, and my respective thoughts on both!
