Music plays a very special role among the many elements that made the Zelda series famous. Whether it’s the Zelda lullaby we find in different episodes, or the four signature notes of the discovery of a treasure, to name a few, these tunes now have a place of choice in popular culture. Before this cult status was achieved, however, the soundtrack of the Zelda universe was the subject of much thought by the original composer Kôji Kondô, but also by his talented successor, In Music in Zelda. Key to a Hylian epic published by Third Éditions, Fanny Rebillard examines this rich musical universe in depth, analyzing the origins and repetitions of emblematic themes, as well as the location of sound in the gameplay of games.

When it comes to the music of the Zelda, Fanny Rebillard is an expert as she made it the subject of her research in musicology. In 2013 she published a dossier on this topic on our website.
