From the artist: “Thanks for checking out my tribute to the beautiful main theme from Zelda: Ocarina of Time! It’s one of the first pieces of video game music that struck me in my youth; the chords, the harp, the haunting ocarina… I’ve always had it in mind to arrange the tune, but when I thought of all Erutan could offer the project, I knew we had to approach it together with my husband, Andrew “zircon” Aversa. Kate’s contributions on ocarina, harp, and glockenspiel truly brought the song to the next level!

After taking a more literal approach with the characters in my second Zelda music video (now of three!), I wanted to return to a freer interpretation for this one. When I think of the Zelda games, I don’t just picture Link and Zelda, but the whole world of Hyrule — with all its magic and charm. What does this world look like from the perspective of the critters that inhabit it? That is the question that inspired our video concept. Kate and I each play three different animal characters, all coming together to witness the metamorphosis of a moth.

We had an enormous amount of fun collaborating on this project. Hope you enjoy!”

In the twilight,
Like a thread spun in the sky,
There’s a stillness
As the day melts into night.

Branches glisten.
Hush now; listen.
Voices rising,
Life here is thriving.

We’re the doorway.
We’re the entrance to your dreams.
We’re the joining.
We’re the fabric of your being.

Branches glisten.
Hush now; listen.
A symphony of voices rising,
Life here is thriving.

Hold fast and you will find yourself.
Hold fast and you will find
How wild and alive your soul is —
How wild and alive we’ll be.
