Album Projects and Skyward Sword Vocal Arrangement

January 21, 2013 at 2:07 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 9 Comments

At some point last year, I realized that I had racked up a whole lot of new original songs that either got uploaded to my Bandcamp as singles (Cube Land, From the Ground Up, Blood Elf Druids, etc.), or never really left my computer! Coupled with music I’ve done for other projects, that body of music could easily fill out a full album… so I think I’m gonna do it! My plan is to release 2 albums this year: one featuring my original songs, and one video game music cover album. The former is almost ready (I just need to arrange “Rewind” and finish 1 more song that I think would fit nicely with the others)

Concerning the latter, here is my 2nd video of the year: “Meet me above the clouds” (I’m trying my hardest to keep up with this video-a-week thing!! Wish me luck!!) It’s a new vocal arrangement of “Ballad of the Goddess” from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. I really enjoyed the music from this game; some of the themes were so beautiful (Fi’s theme in particular is one that I could listen to for hours on end). I also love how the composers reversed Zelda’s Lullaby and constructed an entirely new piece of music… they are so creative and talented. Since there were only a few lyrics in Hylian, I wrote some additional lyrics and added a new vocal melody in order to extend the song. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed working on it ^__^

  8. Hello Laura,

    It’s my 20th birthday this Feb. 17, and I was wondering if you still have Haunting (Normal Version) not the Haunted House Version, if you could put these on your bandcamp page, I’d buy it and would be a great gift for myself. I’ve been searching for the Haunting Normal Version. I just bought you My Blue Dream album. It doesn’t include Haunting Normal Version. But not disappointed though. Haha! Just curious what it sounded like. And thank you for greeting me way back 2011 on my 18th birthday. Here’s the link if you want to look. I’m the one there that have the longest post. https://shigi.wordpress.com/2011/01/27/updates-and-requests/ By that time, we are doing our thesis, so stressed out. But I saw your geetings, which really made my day!

    Thank you Laura! You are really an inspiration to me! Like you, I’m also now doing sound engineering and music for a living. It’s a bit hard though. ^_^

    Cheers!

    Joben

  9. Hi from London!
    That song was amazing! I love the arrangement of it so that each voice pattern fit perfically even though it was made in separate sets of time. They fit in perfect harmony!!
