Gerudo Valley (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)

June 12th, 2008

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is arguably one of, if not the greatest game of all time. I admit it’s not my personal favourite, but the magazine scores and critic rating state one thing – it’s definitely one of the best overall. It’s near perfect.

Featuring a soundtrack by the legendary Koji Kondo, arguably one of the biggest names in videogame music, the game features pieces both old and new to the Zelda series, and truly showcases a new direction for the Zelda series overall, both musically and in gameplay, reimagining the SNES gameplay into a more action-packed 3D world. The music reflects this, of course.

One of our favourite pieces of music in the game is the theme tune to “Gerudo Valley”, the desert locale that is home to a society made up entirely of women but for the one man born every 100 years.. (how does that work, really?) It so happens the only man to come out of the place in 100 years is the rather evil Ganondorf, who leaves his home to serve the king of Hyrule with an eye at taking over. All in all, this track was a pleasure to arrange and record.. and there’s more Zelda coming soon.

Did you know?
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time may be considered the pinnacle of the series, but actually does not feature the main Zelda music theme. After fan dismay at this, the theme returned in the following game, Majora’s Mask.

    After watching Jurassic Park earlier i say they are part Eastern Frogs and can change their sex in a single sex environment. 😀

    BTW- Great cover 😀

    Actually, they crossbreed with Hylians, officially. I guess they’re close enough genetically or something. Either way, I am highly impressed by the music.
