FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

FATE: A Tribute to Majora's Mask on Bandcamp

SEATTLE - May 25, 2018 - Materia Collective is excited to release FATE: A Tribute to Majora's Mask, a massive 79-track collection of arrangements from the beloved The Legend of Zelda title for the Nintendo 64. FATE offers an eclectic mix of genres and styles that reflect the tone of the original soundtrack, and is divided into three parts: The First Day, a collection of tracks driving the anxiety and elation of the first foray into Clock Town; The Second Day, a melancholy selection representing the denial and doubt that the moon is falling into the Earth; and The Final Day, a shorter yet intense set of pieces accenting both the dread of the end and the glimmer of hope that still shines in the world's final moments. FATE: A Tribute to Majora's Mask is fully licensed and available now:

"The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask stands out because, more than any game in the franchise, it dealt with the positive and negative issues that human beings constantly face - grief, death, the passage of time, fear, rejection, and temptation, but also friendship, reconciliation, perseverance, justice, hope, and love," comment album producers Sam and Peter Bobinski. "These themes made for a unique storytelling experience. The game's musical direction incorporates sounds and instruments typically used in Chinese opera, and explores minimalist styles; neither typically found in Zelda soundtracks. Our favorite moments are the boss pieces and the final encounter with Majora."

"Cherry Blossoms Outside ClockTown" is a refreshing re-imagining of the Clock Town theme, combining elements of orchestral, funk, and Japanese folk music to create a beautiful and mysterious atmosphere. "Nova Onda Bossa" is the debut of Materia Brasilis, an ensemble dedicated to arranging game music in the styles of Brazilian music. Laura Intravia's "The True Face" is a choral and orchestral tour-de-force depicting the final battle of the game, taking the listener through an intense musical journey.
