OoT Opening Theme

Author Comments

Well, today I was just sitting around and said, "I'm going to make some music." I then grabbed both my sazes (sazs?) and my keyboard and did a remake of the opening to Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

I hope you all enjoy my rendition.


Has a nice older sound to it. Makes me think of this being the actual opening to the game. Song has a sound to it as if starting an adventure yet being very relaxed at the same time to simply leave home and start your own adventure.

The guitar has a distorted sound to it that makes me think of some playing it a bit badly on purpose just to play it badly. The synth has a vocal sound to it that makes me think that Link is incredibly relaxed to begin his journey.

Overall, messy sounding guitars but gives it a neat feel.

It's not guitar, it's saz. It isn't distorted either, saz has three strings in it's main course and you must just not be used to this sound.

Well, I don't know the opening music of OoT, but I like the sound of the Saz(e)s very much. I also like the background "humming" you created with the keyboard. It adds a very nice atmosphere to the song.

Since this is in the "Video Game" category, I tried to think of games where this music could fit in. But I could only thing of games that take place in the orient, where the Saz(e)s fit perfectly. Sadly, a Saz doesn't seem to fit anywhere else (it just isn't a common instrument in western cultures...).

But that doesn't mean that this song is bad. It's just that it needs a very special setting to fit into a video game. But on the other hand: Does this song really need to be in a video game? Certainly not. Why not just listen to it here in the Audio Portal and enjoy it without any video game? :)
