Announcing the Twilight Symphony Music Video

Since its creation, Radio Hyrule has been a Zelda Reorchestrated project. With the announcement that ZREO as a project has ended, Radio Hyrule is being spun off as a completely independent project, and will remain running and continue to serve the fan community for the foreseeable future.

You may have noticed we have not added Twilight Symphony to our library. For the past several months, Radio Hyrule has been working on a music video, footage of which has been used by the Twilight Symphony team in promotional videos and for the January 2013 premiere at MAGFest. For the Radio Hyrule premiere of Twilight Symphony, wish to broadcast this four-hour music video in its entirety, in HD, to your computer and Wii U consoles.

The Twilight Symphony Music Video will be appearing on Radio Hyrule on Saturday, May 4th at 16:00 EDT/13:00 PDT/20:00 UTC. Don't miss this, RSVP to the event on Facebook. The first tracks are being posted on YouTube now, take a look at Overture to see a trailer!

However we will need some help, streaming high quality video is expensive, so we are seeking help to fund the event, being titled "One Final Tribute" [to Twilight Princess]. Donations above $60 will be listed as stream sponsors before and after the broadcast, on the Radio Hyrule website, and will receive a personalized mounted still out of the video, featuring a scene or characters of your choice. Donations in excess of our live stream costs will go towards future streaming costs and video projects. We're pioneering what we believe to be an innovative new method of live streams and we'd like to deploy this solution in the future.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to use the Contact Us form.

Thank you!

Austin Wright.

Grandma's Theme on Guitar

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! Hop inside for the full interview!
