Composer Alex Moukala has remixed Elden Ring’s main theme into 15 different musical styles, with each more impressive than the last.
The genre-hopping experiment was uploaded to YouTube yesterday (May 11) and contains everything from melodic guitars to hardcore metal.
“What if Elden Ring took place in a multiverse where the game’s genre (and its soundtrack) keep changing?” Moukala writes in the video.
Many musical genres are covered, including: Spanish guitar, nu-disco, symphonic metal, smooth jazz, lofi hip hop, darksynth, movie trailer compositions, a piano solo, baroque, reggae, house, french house, and trap crossed with traditional Japanese music.
The track can be downloaded on Moukala’s Patreon here, as long as you’re a supporter of their work. “I may upload this remix in the future on my Spotify,” says Moukala in the video’s comments. “Since this one was done 100 per cent by hand and doesn’t sample the original track directly, which is what I usually do on my funky covers because of time constraints”.
Moukala’s channel is filled with more video game music remixes and professional reactions, including their analysis of Persona 5’s ‘Last Surprise’ – which breaks down the track’s melodies and how it was written in a way to instantly heighten any battle in the game.
