Grandma's Theme on Guitar


Hey everyone! I haven't had time to post anything on the site lately (thanks to school and finishing up Twilight Symphony), but this song always seems to tug on the right strings so I just had to share this video with you from JumpmanFR's YouTube channel.. Enjoy!

Interview with Video Game Orchestra's Shota Nakama


Since its creation in 2008, the Video Game Orchestra (VGO) has been combining the intimacies and nuances of orchestral instruments (and choir!) with powerful rock instruments, creating a fusion of the two drastically different styles into "rockestral." The orchestra has grown drastically in size over the last few years and has toured the US performing at events such as Penny Arcade Expo, Anime Boston, and even a Final Fantasy Distant Worlds concert. Their programs have covered music from all sorts of games including Zelda, Chrono Trigger, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Donkey Kong Country.

We had the lucky privilege to speak with Shota Nakama, creator of the VGO, and we asked him some questions. He talks about some of the concepts and ideas behind the creation of VGO and also about some future plans to keep an eye out for. Who knows? Maybe they'll be coming to a venue near you!

Zelda Symphony Mini-Concert at Nintendo World NYC

Zelda fans from the New York City area were in for a wonderful evening last night during a special Zelda Symphony event at Nintendo World in Rockefeller Plaza NYC. The event was created by Symphony of the Goddesses producer Jeron Moore who served as the MC for the evening.

Events included an ocarina seminar with ocarina professional David "DocJazz" Ramos, a display of historic Zelda and Nintendo memorabilia, a photo opportunity with famed Link cosplayer Pikmin Link, and a one-hour concert performed by two violins, a viola, cello, bass, flute, and harp.

The ensemble was conducted by Symphony of the Goddesses conductor Eímear Noone, and the arrangements were created by Chad Seiter.

Some of the arrangements were based off of the full orchestra versions of Symphony of the Goddesses tracks, but there were also a few new tracks never heard before. The entire concert was captured on video and thanks to the power of the internet, you can hop inside and check it out!

New Batch of New Music

Hi folks, sorry for the long break in posts! We're back with some fresh new tracks that have been added to the library.


First up, we have eleven demo tracks from M. Bulteau's Majora's Mask Opera, Majora, including one I don't think you'll find anywhere else! If you missed our recent interview with him about his project make sure you go check it out.

Other new additions this batch include some Symphony of the Goddesses tracks, one of which is a better recording of the E3 Overture track we've been playing for the last year or so. The rest of the tracks are mostly from Newgrounds or Dwelling of Duels.. Make sure you check out one of my favorites, Full Mast by virt and Snappleman.

Check out a full list of all of the new tracks here!
