Arrangement of “Puzzle” from FEZ

✨🎵✨New music✨🎵✨ 

This week “TESSERACT: An Acoustic FEZ Album” was released by Materia Collective!

For my arrangement of “Puzzle”, I wanted to convey the idea of discovering, examining, and solving a puzzle from the perspective of the protagonist. To do this, I decided to separate the original composition down to some specific elements and reconstruct the piece, hoping to create the emotional and narrative effect desired.

Breath of the Wild - Main Theme (string quartet arrangement)

Recently, I worked with violinist Patti Rudisill (left) and her friends on an arrangement of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Main Theme. Having both been thoroughly enjoying the game, it only felt fitting to perform this theme.

"Dark Waters" featured on Hero of Time

Out today, Hero of Time is an epic re-imagining of the soundtrack to Nintendo's timeless adventure RPG, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Hero of Time is unprecedented in many ways, setting out to arrange and record with a full 64-piece orchestra the most poignant moments from the game.

I was invited to arrange the only solo piano piece featured on the album: Dark Waters. Dark Waters is an impressionist take on the Water Temple and encounter with Dark Link, featuring Augustine Mayuga Gonzales' expert performance.
