Behind the Song: Dren McDonald: The Legend of Zelda Theme Song

Review Fix chats with Bay Area composer Dren McDonald about his string-quartet version of “The Legend of Zelda” theme song from The String Arcade.

“The String Arcade” spans a few decades in video game history, from stand-up arcade classics (Galaga, TRON), through the 8- and 16-bit eras (Legend of Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog, Altered Beast, Ecco the Dolphin) and the golden age of 1990s adventures (Monkey Island 2, Outlaws), to more recent hits (Portal 2, Minecraft), indie favorites (FTL — Faster Than Light, Scurvy Scallywags), and mobile/social games (graBLOX, Pettington Park, Ravenshire Castle).
