"Transitioning Koji Kondo's music to rock and roll feels like a very natural process - as I am huge fan of both," notes arranger and producer Joel Kent. "Working with some amazing faculty during my last couple of semesters at Berklee has really pushed my playing and arranging style, and I believe my progress as a musician is evident in this project. Taking a break from my original music and jamming some of my favorite Zelda tracks during the process of recording this EP was just what I needed to concede the things I love about rock guitar, along with videogame music in general."
