For this EP, we tried to create vivid imagery with audio. Mythical Creatures makes us think of a bustling ancient city, filled with dragons, magicians, merchants, lords, warriors, and any other mythical creature you can think of. The tracks that follow tell stories of characters within the city, or the surrounding country side. Those who have played any sort of Dungeons and Dragons game, or Baldurs Gate series game, might be familiar with the dark elf, Drizzt. If he had a nightclub, we tried thinking of what it would sound like inside.
Our collaboration with Arure was extremely exciting for us. We started by sending him a medieval sort of melody that he recreated using authentic instruments. He also did a fantastic job creating a tavern atmosphere by recording his voice 30 different times to create characters, pitching some of the voices around for different tones. His friend Delphine created two additional female voices, and together created an excellent tavern atmosphere!
We hope the themes of the tracks make listeners envision a certain series of events and imagery. It was certainly fun for us, and prefaces our concept album approach to “Lost Souls.”
