The theme to the Dark World: most of us know it, and many of us love it. We at the staff also love it for its intensity and sweet finish. But the Dark World theme on the Marimba? That can’t possibly be good, could it? Really, its all up to the listener.

See for yourself!

    In all seriousness this is pretty amazing

  • JFG360

    Ugh, their technique hurts to watch. And the mallet selection, could have had a much better ambient balance there.

    • Ashmic

      I hope you can do better, if not , don't judge

    • zerandomguy

      lol, so what?

    • I hate it when people criticise technique. I played marimba in high school, and didn't have "good technique"–I didn't hold the mallets in the correct position that is taught in schools. …And yet I was the best player there, and EVERYONE KNEW IT. So don't criticise. >:{

      Great job on one of my FAVORITE Zelda songs! šŸ™‚

        Completely agree.

        I don't think we would mind this comment if it was an actual critique or helpful suggestions. I wish people would make sure someone wants a critique from them AND take the effort to word their critique in a constructive manner. The musicians playing aren't even going to see that comment, and more than half the people on this site aren't going to play a marimba so the comment is completely inappropriate.

        I was in Drumline during Highschool Doctor You. Wish I had tried Marimba during Winter Percussion, but the farthest I got was some bells and chimes. Can I see you playing online somewhere?

      nerd! enjoy the music.

  • YIKES MR. LOW MARIMBA! Alternate hands or use 3 mallets! Eesh! And isn't that type of mallet usually used on vibraphones? I hear more "CLACK" on the low end because of that mallet choice rather than the note itself.

    Awesome arrangement, dismal presentation. But I'm a percussionist, so I'm picky about these things. šŸ˜€

  • !CJ!

    not only is the GREAT! but it sounds MORE than good enough to be in a game! not only should it be in the next Zelda game with a dark world, and not only can I HEAR and SEE the next Zelda game with a Dark World useing this music, but they should make the next Zelda game with a Dark World just so they can use this!

    Needed just a tiny bit more cowbell for me though.

  • Hyrule's Shadow

    WOW….Nothing much to say but WOW, this is like so awesome. And just at the time that I saw this article, I was listening to the Dark world theme on the Z.R.E.O site. Plain coincidence.
