Spicing up Zelda Symphony: An interview with Chad Seiter

"Chiptunes don’t translate to a vast orchestral piece as easily as one might think.

Performing a videogame composition once and then looping it for another go may be passable in some venues, but in the case of an orchestra playing the widely cherished The Legend of Zelda series soundtracks, there needs to be an added level of pizzaz to spice it all up. With The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, this includes selecting tracks that best represent specific games and tying them into a movement that tells that game’s story.

Producers Jeron Moore and Jason Michael Paul have spoken passionately about the formation of the show, so it only seemed fitting to continue along and talk to Chad Seiter, the symphony’s orchestrator. You might know his name from some of his film and TV composing work for Lost, Fringe and this year’s Star Trek game." - Patrick Kulikowski (3DS, Chad Seiter, Culture, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Wii, Wii U)
