Dark World theme from Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past written in 5/4 swing time. I thought it'd be different to write a video game song in jazz, and since I never write in 4/4 or 3/4 very much anymore, I put it in 5. Deal with it. It was written in NoteWorthy Composer and output to a midi file, which was then loaded with various soundfonts in SynthFont, and output to an mp3 file, which was then tailored in Gold Wave. Enjoy! Or don't, not my problem. I've been writing music for eight years, so it's all a learning experience. "Dark World" was originally written by Koji Kondo and used in the published Super Nintendo game "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past". I believe the rights are reserved to the Nintendo, but this a tribute of sorts, so I mean no harm.


I like this

First off, I love the transition into 5/4. Its a very brave and bold move if you ask me. I think this has been very well done and very well thought out. Its good stuff!

The only reason that its a 9 for me is I'm not too sure about the first maybe, two bars with just the snare, it sounds sort of out of time to me. Otherwise its absolutely perfect and you should keep it up :)
