Solid work! It stays close to the original, but takes its own liberties. As soon as the voices came in at around 0:15, you won me over.
My two gripes were: 1) The flutes are a bit too solid. I feel like they should be "stuttering" more, instead of being continuous notes. You can check the original for reference, but yeah, I really think that's something that should be kept. This is my biggest concern.
2) The voices get a little chaotic at around 1:15. This is more of a stylistic choice and not something I can fault you on; you just tried it out and I personally didn't like it. I'm sure others would be perfectly fine with it. I just thought the voices were changing pitch a bit too quickly, kinda detracting from the ethereal feel that you built at the beginning from 0:15 onward.
That aside, excellent job! I love hearing Forest and Shadow Temple remixes; they just give such an awesome, otherworldly feeling that I think is lacking in newer games. Keep it up!
I always loved this theme. It seems to add to the confusion the temple caused me... the only thing I don't like about it is the floormasters (there's nothing wrong with your song, nothing at all)
Nice, slow, and beautiful track, nice and smooth.
But I think of Paper Mario more than Ocarina of Time when I hear this for some reason....
It's still a good track none the less
This is pretty close to the original. The flutes are a little higher in pitch or something compared to the original and the Z.R.E.O remastering of it. Though the strings and percussion is pretty spot on. It's different, which is good.
i seemed to be scared of this for some reason
when i played Oot i was 6, as a six year old, this game is frigin terrifying, skultia, those skeletons that come out at knight, horrifiying temple music, and dont even get me started on redeads.
i hada strategy, anything with scary music is scary, so wouldnt even go in dodongo's cavern. i faced my fear and went on up till this temple, and it seemed pretty scary. i didnt play again till i was 9. and now i beat the game and even went back to fight in those temples again,
but redeads still scare me, OH COME ON LIKE THAT BLOOD HURTLING SHRIEK DOESN'T SCARE YOU.
this is a very good mix and im proud to have overcome this whole video games buisness.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
