Capturing the melancholic mood in which Erik Satie’s Gnossiennes are mired (particularly recalling Gnossienne No. 1), American musicmaker ÜUCE has reworked the Song of Storms — aka the Windmill Hut theme — from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (and Majora’s Mask).

ÜUCE expands on the original, accenting it with shivering sweeps of the keyboard, adding clinking percussion, straining strings and a foundation of mythic drone. The original is synonymous with Guru-Guru, a character from both games, whose sudden angry face must be etched in the minds of all who saw it; accordingly, the fragile atmosphere of ‘Guru-Guru’s Windmill Waltz’ pries open the polygons and takes a look inside the fraught mind of this unhinged character.
