Many Zelda fans everywhere can agree that the theme song for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is one of the most beautiful songs in existence. Now thanks to singer Jillian Aversa, she has blessed us with a gorgeous new rendition called “Chrysalis.” She has partnered with YouTuber Erutan (Kate Covington), who performs with an ocarina, harp and glockenspiel. In addition, Aversa has arranged the song with her husband, Andrew “zircon” Aversa. The music video will make one feel like they’ve transported into another world thanks to the forest setting, costumes, and of course, the music.

Check out “Chrysalis,” an homage to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time below.

“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 has created other renditions including themes from NieR, Final Fantasy VI, Metal Gear Solid 3 and Game of Thrones.
