Well, since I remade The Lost Woods, I thought I'd remake The Windmill Hut too. There might be a little distortion at the end, but it should be alright. Expect more tracks from OOT in the future, too!

Also, feel free to review, I don't mind negative criticism, as long as it's constructive and specific.

Way to make one of the most memorable OOT songs even better by adding a little atmosphere to it like the rain in the background. In fact for some reason this kinda sounds like Monkey Island I dunno why but it kinda does. Anyhoo great job and Hope we can hear more great music!


sounds like the song that would play in the background while someone is parachuting of a huge cliff. or maybe suicide?

Too bad that the beginning is annoying.

It's due to the harmorica. To some people, the sound would be hurting their ears, but the rest of the song is completely good (because the harmorica fades).
Also, you could change the name from "OTTHQ: The Windmill Hut" to "OTTHQ: The ??? Hut. Nintendo never gave out the name of the windmill. Windmill and Hut have a similar meaning (both refering to a wooden building), so your title is a little meaningless.
Hope you at least TAKE my advice.
But yeah, all that title talk was a little bulshit :(

Hoeloe responds:

I named the track after the one in the OoT Original Soundtrack. It was titled there as "The Windmill Hut".

Also, windmill and hut don't really have a similar meaning at all. A hut refers to a small, one-room building, and a windmill refers to a building which makes use of a wind power in order to turn "blades", originally used for milling (hence the term wind-mill)


I don't get why people get their knickers in a knot over a title (your song, your title, besides it's correct either way), the most important thing is the music itself, which funnily enough I have no words for as nothing can describe how beautiful this is. I love you.

song of storms*

not the windmill hut

Hoeloe responds:

If you read some of the previous comments, you'd know why I called it "The Windmill Hut" and not "The Song of Storms".

I have the soundtrack to The Ocarina of Time, and it contains two tracks: One called "The Song of Storms", and one called "The Windmill Hut". The Song of Storms is the ocarina arrangement of the song, whereas The Windmill Hut is the piece that plays when you are inside the hut. I have gone by what Nintendo put on the Official Sountrack, and I will stick to it.

On an unrelated note, this space is really for reviews, not comments. You should really only post something here if you plan to weigh up pros and cons and come to final verdict on the piece, not to post comments about trivial things such as the title with no explanation of the score you have given it, be it bad or good. If you didn't like something, say why, and how it could be improved. If you did like it, say why, and what you think was done particularly well. Personally I believe there's always room for improvement, but that's just me.
