Until the premiere of Skyward Sword, The Legend of Zelda games consistently have featured a synthesized musical soundscape to accompany Link on his adventures. Music either synthesized or generated from computer-software programs represented to some a welcomed tradition, a sort of trademark of the game. To others it was old-fashioned and not in a good way. As far as dissenters were concerned, a game of such scope and epic proportions required comparable music, e.g. acoustic or electro-acoustic instruments. Notwithstanding events like the “Symphony of the Goddess” tour, if we want to hear the music of Zelda, then we have to download midi-audio files where we can find them (if you haven’t checked out the Legend of Zelda Music and Soundtracks from ZeldaUniverse.com, then I highly encourage you to set aside a few hours and become the figurative kid in a candy store).
