Violinist Inspired by Skyrim Creates Stunning Vocal and Musical Video

on April 5, 2012 6:30 PM

Fan-made videos based on games are a dime a dozen on this vast thing we call the Interwebs. However, well-made ones are certainly rarer. Today I present you with one of the best fan-made videos inspired by Bethesda‘s masterpiece I’ve ever seen.

Violinist Lindsey Stirling and vocalist Peter Hollens not only perform their various talents for us on-screen, but engage in some pretty epic story telling and battle sequences, as well. The entire video is a sight to behold and very cool. Their rendition and interpretation of the Elder Scrolls theme is one of the best I’ve heard. Keep an eye out around 2:28 for some snazzy visual effects and the typical Skyrim HUD to pop up from time to time during the fight. No dragons, but Lindsey and Peter are nearly as powerful. I’ve embedded it after the break for your viewing pleasure.
