Menuet De La Solitude

Ouverture et Fantaisie en Fa mineur

This is my rendition of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time's "Forest Temple". It constitutes my first test using soundfonts. The samples from the woodblocks and the atmosphere pad are the game's original. I only reworked them to play their respective motifs.

My arrangement is a mix of new and old, in a creative fashion. I wanted to stay true to the franchise's roots so I reused melodies that are a part of the forests in The Legend of Zelda games. The piano follows the opening bars of A Link To The Past's "Lost Woods" theme as it luckily shares the same chord structure with "Forest Temple". The french horn plays the first notes of "Saria's Song". It makes sense because she is the temple's sage after all!

I added some pizzicato cellos that I found fit the mood and added rich texture to the song. Also an slow harp arpeggiates on top of the melody adding a sense of mystery. I hope you like my work and don't forget to post a comment, it helps my learning process. Thank You!
