Updates, another (audio) interview and Q&A #17

Once again we meet in this shady corner of the internet!

I have been interviewed again, with other questions. This time in audio format, and it will be broadcast over at the Windmill Hut at 7:00 PM PST on Wednesday the 25th of July. Thanks to Nova Amalak!

(Do not use the main flash stream, for it is buggy. Use the multi-player tune-in on the top left, or just directly choose a player below that.)

.

Apart from that, here’s what has been going on, for those who care to read:

The audio for the Clock Town Choir demo has been completely recorded, and is currently being mixed. We are still working around a way to make the video.

We’re one day short of finally completing the audio for the Trio (Anju, the Postman and Anju’s Mother), and I expect the video to be recorded as soon as possible. Although the date for that has not been specified yet, it will definitely be the next demo.

The recordings for another demo, a quartet between Kafei, the Monkey, the Deku King and the Deku Princess, have already begun.

The animation for the Giant’s Aria is going well, as is the recording of its audio.

The video for Majora’s Aria has also been recorded, yet the audio is not final. It might be the very last demo to come out, as the definitive audio is only expected to be ready at the end of August.

Those were the news on all five remaining demos.

.

Now it’s time for another short Q&A:

LinkinaMask: [referring to Demo #4]: The animation is good but how do you expect to take that to the stage?

The Deku would enter the swamp set, where Kafei has already been before this. The king would be the center of that sort of parade, while two stronger Deku would bring the squirming Monkey in and tie him to a pole like in the game. The planned sets allow for the cauldron to come in, although the Monkey would instead remain tied to the pole, as it is near impossible to sing well while upside down. As I have already said, the monkey doesn’t die, so he is first left to “marinate” in the steam coming from the cauldron, while tied to the pole. They don’t get to execute him due to the chain of events that follows.

.

f(x)=12/x: Will Anju and Kafei have multiple musical themes, or a single one like Sakon? And, if you can tell, which are those? I know I could wait for the next demo with Anju, yet I couldn’t help asking.

Anju has an indirect connection to the Song of Storms, while they both share the theme of their marriage, which plays in the game in the end credits.

.

f(x)=12/xWhat’s the name of the metallic-bongo-ish instrument that plays for more than half the demo (especially from 4:30 onward)?

You mean in Kafei’s Dream, the instrumental? They’re literally metallic pipes, of the sort you would find in sewers. Anything can be used as a percussion instrument, really.

.

animesquirt: So for Kafei’s Dream, is it JUST going to be a dance, or are lyrics eventually going to be added?

It is just a dance, yes. It’s one of the opera’s instrumental dance numbers, the longest, in fact. Another dance number has been uploaded a long time ago, the battle between Odolwa and the Deku. Each act is supposed to have one of these numbers.

  1. A question that has been bugging me for a while, but I keep forgetting to ask: You are currently writing for Great Bay, but you have already written and recorded Pamela’s Arietta from Ikana Canyon. Does this mean you have more written than your progress bars claim?

    • I would guess that he writes not only in a specified order (which would be the order of events in the story), but also just writes down whatever comes to his mind, when it comes to his mind. This would then be the reason for parts of the Ikana storyline already being done while prior parts of the story aren’t finished yet.
