The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time "Chrysalis" Music Video
Baltimore, Maryland - August 8, 2017 - Performer and videogame soundtrack vocalist Jillian Aversa is thrilled to present an exciting collaboration featuring the iconic title theme from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time performed jointly with YouTube sensation Erutan (Kate Covington). This ethereal rendition of the beloved theme, titled "Chrysalis," is arranged by Jillian and her husband, Andrew "zircon" Aversa, and includes her otherworldly lyrics and vocal work alongside Erutan's ocarina, harp, and glockenspiel performances. The music video includes a dreamy forest setting, elaborate costumes, and a story of transformation.
The song is also available for purchase from OverClocked Records:
"After taking a more literal approach with the characters in my second Zelda music video last year, I wanted to return to a freer interpretation for this one," comments Jillian. "When I think of the Zelda games, I don't just picture Link and Zelda, but the whole world of Hyrule -- with all its magic and charm. What does this world look like from the perspective of the critters that inhabit it? That is the question that inspired our video concept. Kate and I each play three different animal characters, all coming together to witness the metamorphosis of a moth."
"The location was a gorgeous pocket of Maryland forest untouched by the houses built around it," Erutan notes. "My biggest challenge was walking through the brush in a long dress, attempting to look like a graceful forest animal while trying not to trip over the thorny vines, fallen logs, and other forest floor goodies. Jillian was much better at this than me," she laughs. "We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly!"
Jillian also praises the talented video director: "Landon Donoho has an uncanny ability to turn dreams into dreamy reality. I feel incredibly lucky every time I get to work with him."
Jillian and Erutan's The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time "Title Theme" tribute has been posted to Jillian's YouTube channel, where music videos paying homage to Final Fantasy VI, NieR, Destiny, Metal Gear Solid 3 and Game of Thrones can also be found:
