about

When I discovered the glory that is the Wind Waker soundtrack I couldn’t contain myself and committed to it fully. The result is this 7-minute long centerpiece of Hyrule Highlands II.

It contains my favorite Wind Waker tunes this side of Dragon Roost Island - which already received the Celtic treatment on the original Hyrule Highlands: Outset, Windfall, Title and Ocean. Starting out with Title, the mood is immediately set with a faithful translation of the original melody, supported by the Backing Band O’ Tims and a little orchestra out of a can.

Legendary Hero brings the scale back down before Drummer Tim starts going completely ham to announce the upcoming total jam that is the Outset & Windfall Island mashup.

Both tracks are heavily inspired by their Ocarina counterparts: Outset contains Kokiri Forest, while Windfall contains Kakariko Village. Performing these two was an utter joy – and while listening back I can’t help but smile like a fool. A main role for dulcimer here, an instrument that pops up often on the album and is also heard on the original Wind Waker soundtrack. Some clarinets and flutes give the tracks some added color and announce the Symphonic Folk (tm) of the Great Sea.

For Great Sea Drummer Tim does his best facsimile of an orchestral snare drum player. Accordion and orchestral strings keep the waves bobbing while the tin whistle keeps its eyes on the horizon. A choir speaks of sights to come.
