The most common reaction has been people wondering why we've chosen to close the project, rather than leave it open as an archive. Frankly, the site has served as an archive for the last three years, as we devoted ourselves entirely to Twilight Symphony and other projects. It's not a decision we've made lightly, but it's time to start letting go and moving on ahead into what the future holds for each of us. We aren't opposed to fans creating mirrors of our music collection, but we would really appreciate fans refraining from creating live HTML replicas of the website. Not only will this help prevent confusion, but it will make it easier for everyone to move on.
Our friends at Zelda Universe have uploaded Twilight Symphony to their servers for people who do not use torrents. They will be creating a download page sometime soon, but these are the links for the Twilight Symphony archive , and the complete ZREO archive. We greatly appreciate everyone who has sent us a donation for our efforts on Twilight Symphony. If you haven't, and would like to, you may do so here.
We will be keeping our Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and SoundCloud accounts online, albeit in a limited capacity. We will post occasional updates every few months if we have something we'd like to share that fans might be interested in. Radio Hyrule will continue to be maintained and operated, and could actually use some help if you're interested.
Many fans have expressed interest in following our future projects. You can follow each of us personally:

We will be uploading Twilight Symphony to our YouTube channel in music video form. These videos were shown at our MAGFest panel earlier this year, and include footage from Twilight Princess that has been rendered in high-definition by our server manager, Austin Wright ( @awwright). The visuals are fantastic. We've posted the first track today, along with a timelapse video detailing Houston Hanna's creation of the Twilight Symphony artwork. The rest of the album will be uploaded periodically between now and June 12.
