Theme: The Legend of Zelda Series
Instrumentation: Any

Your assignment for Round 1 is to compose a remix that uses themes from the Legend of Zelda Series. To earn a total of 10 Points for Theme, one must use a lesser known/remixed theme from the games. There is no limit on the instrumentation.

Obvious songs from the games NOT to use would be the Main / Overworld Theme, Zelda's Theme, and Kakariko Village theme.

Those who wish to use these themes in addition to a lesser known theme must make sure that the lesser known theme is more prevalent than the known theme should they wish to achieve high points in Theme.

Score Breakdown

Theme (10%) - This score represents how well the submission adheres to the theme of the Audition Phase. Those failing to submit materials that represent the theme will be scored a 0. Although these would appear to be a cut and dry score, there can be some gray area, and remixers are warned to be very specific and exact with their remixes.

Remix (35%) - The category encompasses how well the remix represents the original work(s). The piece should be strong enough that someone familiar with the original work recognizes the source material, but that it also strong enough to stand alone from the original.

Creativity (45%) - This category is a critique of the artist's compositional decisions in the songs creation. What has been added to really breathe life into the remix? Does the piece flow solidly from section to section, and stay fresh without becoming repetitive? Is listening to this song enjoyable?

Production (10%) - This category encompasses the technical qualities of the sound, including the quality of samples used, of any recording done, and of mixing and panning.
