This piece starts out quietly, but moves into a fuller, orchestral and synthetic middle section. To my ear, it would work quite well in a game, with its emotive melody underpinned by a driving rhythm, parenthetically enclosed by an almost-melancholic processed piano.
Not only is this the first Kyrie that I’ve written, it’s also probably one of the least traditional. It’s a reworking of a track I wrote last year, Conflagration. This time round, I’ve gone more down-tempo, made the orchestration a little more “classic”, and heavied it up a bit. The chord progression’s also changed a bit.
The vocals were made using speak.js, which is an emscripten-compiled version of the open-source eSpeak speech synthesiser.
