On this months installment of Nine For Nine I took a left turn and focused on video game music, specifically Zelda. I’ve had a very interesting relationship with video games throughout my life. As a child I had a similar path as many my age, growing up with Super Nintendo, N64, and eventually GameCube.
However by the time the next generation of consoles came out of was out of high school and working. I didn’t want to invest my time and money in video games anymore. So for the next 8 years or so I played little to no video games while I attended college and begun to master my craft. It wasn’t until my sister began writing as a games journalist and my girlfriend got an Xbox One that I started to come back to video games.
Now I’m fully in the community. Playing as much as I can in my leisure time and I use it as a break and escape from music. I chose Zelda because I love the music from the franchise. From the iconic 8 bit soundtrack, to Wind Waker, to Breath of the Wild. Zelda always has had great music and memorable motifs.
So I hope you enjoy my cover of The Legend of Zelda Overworld Theme. May it bring a smile to your face and inspire you to pick up a controller and experience the music in its designed setting.
