ABOUT

Daniel Jimenez (professionally known as Rozen) is a Mexican-born composer and producer currently based in Los Angeles, California. A graduate of Berklee College of Music, he excels at composing music for media, including film, television, and video games. His work in video production ranges from music videos to behind the scenes and live performances.

Rozen’s music favors a dramatic style that incorporates both choral and orchestral ensembles, though he writes and arranges for a variety of instrumentations. He has worked extensively with several choirs, including the Video Game Music Choir and the Audire Soundtrack Choir, the latter of which he founded in 2012.

Rozen is currently serving as an Assistant Director for an ambitious fan-arranged album called Harmony of Heroes. The album features musicians from around the world collaborating in celebration of Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros.™ franchise.

He will knock your socks off, and then politely destroy your face with his reservoir of amazingness that he reserved before the offing of your socking.

Powerful. This song keeps halting me as I type. It’s moving me. I can’t be eloquent right now, I have to FEEL this.

WAITING FOR THE DAWN

A Majora's Mask EP. Introducing a reimagined version of one of the most climactic events in the video game history, Time’s End, when the world’s hope rests on four colossal guardians to stop the Moon from wiping out existence. Will they survive? Or will they meet a terrible fate?

PART I: THE PREDICAMENT OF THE FOUR

The EP’s dark first movement,evokes a powerful mixture of hope and dread as Link calls upon the four giants with the Oath to Order. Nintendo Life calls the track “an impressive orchestral performance”and “a wonderful four and a half minutes.” Featuring the melancholy vocals of the Audire Soundtrack Choir plus contributions from several other soloists, it’s an experience no Majora’s Mask fan should miss.

 

PART II: WE SHALL GREET THE MORNING…TOGETHER

Part II introduces new artist Reven into the fold as she and Rozen tackle the more sensitive side of Majora’s Mask. A contrast to the first half, the sweeping melodies of Part II dwell on the heart-wrenching scene of Kafei’s return to Anju and their decision to stay in Clock Town no matter the outcome. The music “reflects the passion shared by the couple who vow to stay together, no matter what.” (Zelda Universe)
