I began composing music for an independent video game called Lyst, which is a tribute to the style of the Myst games. Lyst is darker, taking place in an abandoned experimental facility on an asteroid hurtling towards the sun. The player awakes not remembering much about their circumstances, and must piece together clues to escape in time.
The music is dark and ambient with a heavy electronic influence. There are a few major motifs laced throughout the game to represent the recurring elements like the mysterious alien presence. I plan on writing background music for each sector of the game and then writing an orchestral suite for the closing credits.
