Orka Veer

So I was watching DL.TV last week, and a commercial for PC Magazine came on, with some really cool 8-bit inspired music. I emailed them and they let me know who made it, an artist who goes by the name Orka Veer. He’s got a Myspace site here: http://www.myspace.com/orkaveer
Also, all his music can be obtained from his main site:
I would highly recommend going there and downloading ‘Steffy Square Synth’ the song from the commercial I mentioned.
And well, since many of this blog’s readers are RPG players, I figure you’ll appreciate the following from his main site:
“It all started with a Legend of Zelda videogame entitled, “Ocarina of Time.” For those of you who aren’t familiar with the game, performing music on an instrument called an “ocarina” played a vital role in completing the adventures and quests. I absolutely loved this videogame. Every aspect of its art I considered to be beautiful, breathtaking, inspiring, and motivating. This included the soundtrack. I loved it to the point that I started earing out pieces on the piano and practicing them just so I could perform the songs outside of the videogame. Before I knew it, I was addicted to the piano. I started earing out other music, and I started composing my own simple piano pieces.”
Now, I may not hold Ocarina’s soundtrack as high as he does, but I still think that’s pretty cool.

One thought on “Orka Veer”

  1. Hey Chris,
    If you liked Stephy Square Synth… you’d probably enjoy a new song I just threw up called “Thank You Koji Kondo.” I hope all is going well, thanks so much for your support!
