Abstract

My Capstone project is centered around an analysis of some of the thematically styled compositions from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild including Ganon’s themes, the title theme of the game, and the final boss battle theme. Analysis includes transcriptions and harmonic analysis as well as analysis and insight into the effect which is had on the listener. These insights include analysis of tension building through melodic and harmonic dissonance, as well as tension created through the building and support of Breath of the Wild’s narrative through musical storytelling.
