Press release:
SEATTLE – March 20, 2017 – Materia Collective is pleased to present Hero of Time, an epic re-imagining of the soundtrack to Nintendo’s timeless adventure RPG, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Hero of Time is unprecedented in many ways, setting out to arrange and record with a full 64-piece orchestra the most poignant moments from the game. After finding success on Kickstarter with over 1,000 backers contributing over $50,000, this dream has become a reality, and will be available in digital and limited edition CD formats on March 27, 2017 with pre-orders opening March 20, as well as a gorgeous vinyl release to follow via iam8bit in the coming months:

It’s the awesome “Hero of time” cd.

“Orchestral recordings of music from The Legend of Zelda have become increasingly popular over the last several years,” notes arranger and project director Eric Buchholz. “With Hero of Time, we sought to create a single, cohesive experience that weaves all of the complex underlying themes of the game, like impermanence and mortality, with Koji Kondo’s timeless melodies that have become as iconic as the game itself. The orchestration takes an ‘east-meets-west’ approach, with the inclusion of taiko ensembles, eastern woodwinds, and harmonies found prevalent in Japanese film and game scores.”

Fans will relive their favorite memories from the game, such as riding through Hyrule field for the first time, meeting the angelic Princess Zelda, exploring the Lost Woods, facing off against the vile Ganon, and discovering all the hidden ocarina melodies hidden throughout the album. The full track listing is as follows:

01. Hero of Time
02. The Man with Evil Eyes
03. Fateful Morning
04. Hyrule Field
05. Castle Town Market
06. Princess Zelda
07. Lon Lon Ranch
08. Dungeon Dwellers
09. The Legendary Blade
10. Seven Years
11. Sheik
12. Memories of the Forest

16. Spirit of the Valley
