Okay, so here's the fifth song from my OOTHQ Series! This time, since I didn't have anything better to do, I've taken a request from Aaroca. That's right, I might take requests if you ask nicely! Had a little trouble with the export on this one, but nothing too bad. That's really all there is to say, feel free to request a song from Ocarina of Time you'd like me to remix!

I thought this was a pretty good remake. I'm not giving it 5 stars though, because it didn't give me the feeling of Goron City. I personally feel that this might have been better if it was brass centered, and maybe a little more bass. The strings gave it a light feeling that doesn't have a place in Goron City. As a musical composition, I give you 5 stars, but as a remake of this piece, I can only give you 4 stars. The only thing I would keep in mind when doing remakes from now on is that the melody isn't the only thing that makes the music, the feeling it gives off is important too. Try to take the feeling you got when you first viewed the city, and incorporate that into your work. I look forward to your other submissions.

I appreciate your comments. It seems the feeling we got in Goron City differs somewhat. I got more a light, earthy kind of feeling, rather than a big and heavy one, if you catch my drift. I felt that low strings best suited that (hence the cello). The original composition featured the melody played on the strings, too, and I felt that fitted nicely, so I didn't change that element. Thank you for your comments.

Sadly no ten.

The reason was that the music had no Goron feeling. I can't guarantee this is better than the few remixes of Goron City that I heard. Altough better than the original.


I think I just turned gay for you. Seriously, the music you make is absolutely beautiful and by far some of the best remixes I have ever heard. I hope you continue to follow this wonderful talent of yours.

thank you

the original slighty explained goron culture but you can really just see those hard working rock people in the forges or working with those bomb plants

Orchestrial remix to perfection

In all honesty I was never a big fan of the song, but what you did with it was upheld with great taste and flavor. I can't believe I havent found you on NG before, I'm going to raid your collection now.
