This is the 3rd iteration of the main menu theme for Lost Existence, the original title from 2012 being my track 'Epic Adventure'. For this iteration, I enlisted the help of Newgrounds' own Etherealwinds to provide vocals, having previously worked with him to create the Etherealwinds Harp II sample library. In addition to Jordi's voice, the aforementioned harp samples were also used, along with samples I made of a bowed psaltery being plucked. The high strings and tin whistle are actually from VSCO 2 Pro, as is all the percussion, while brass and contrabasses are from EW Hollywood.
The general goal was to build between 'folk' sections inspired by historical music and fanfares inspired by classic films like How the West Was Won, to contrast the pastoral exploration/building of the game with its rather intense combat.
There aren't actually any lyrics, Jordi uses a made-up language called 'Etherean' which is a mix of his favorite linguistic influences across several western and eastern languages.
