Yet another project file that I dug up from the depths of my computer. I have been working on this song for several months off and on and I haven't really been satisfied with it until now. I used a flute/celesta combination to accompany the other instruments because I wanted to give the song a melancholic-like air. I also used a french horn and strings in order to make the song more 'wholesome'. It was pretty difficult to do this one out by ear, so at certain portions of the song I had to take a look at certain pieces of sheet music (which, by the way, is something I can barely comprehend) to capture the right notes. There may be a few notes that are off so I apologize for that.

I know that the ending leaves a lot to be desired...but the conclusions to the majority of my songs are terrible, so it's something for me to keep working on! Also I'm aware that there are a million and one different versions and covers/remixes of this song so I apologize for that! I really hope you like my rendition of 'Clock Tower/Song of Healing', it is one of my favorite Zelda songs. :)

I'm a big fan of Majora's Mask to be honest I liked it more than OoT (I will probably get yelled at for this) Man this arrangement is beautiful I really love the part that starts at 1:35 great work!
I feel like buying an N64 now... xD

Neon-Bard responds:

Nah don't worry about saying that hahaha! There were a lot of things that I liked more about Majora's Mask, though I wouldn't be able to pick a clear 'favorite' out of the two.

Thank you for the review btw, really appreciate it! :)

Great instruments! Hehe makes me nostalgic for the game which is definitely a good sign. The sound overall is actually really professional, with really good attention to detail and no crowding at all.

It's not what you had in mind, for sure, but I think this would be 5 stars if you did something really original with it. Like drop in a melody of your own, using an instrument that wasn't originally part of the song.

Still great though!

Neon-Bard responds:

Thanks for the kind review! :D

I'm glad it was able to give you nostalgia, as you said, that's a good sign. This is far from being 'original', but I think I've managed to incorporate my own style into the song for sure (such as with the flute, french horn, etc.)!

Nice man! Funny how we both post similar songs sometimes XD Like we both posted a zelda song. But this is pretty awesome. Nice mix and instrumentation. The song is called Song of Healing by the way. But nice work! Sounds great with your orchestral interpretation. really pretty. Great job!

Neon-Bard responds:

Actually yeah...that's really strange! :P

Thanks for the review btw! Also, fun fact: both titles are in some ways correct. 'Song of Healing' and 'Clock Tower' are somewhat interchangeable (stress on somewhat), though both songs do have some minor differences! I noticed though that my 'version' of the song sounds much more like the Song of Healing so perhaps I should have just called it 'Song of Healing' instead...
