I’m Olivier Deriviere, the music composer on Bound by Flame. Working on Bound by flame was really inspiring, as the game presents a disembodied dark world full of big monsters and the undead, and where the few survivors left alive are struggling to survive. I really wanted to capture this sense of loneliness and despair through the music, so I created unique soundscapes based on the different locations and atmospheres. And then there’s the hero, Vulcan, who is possessed by a flame demon. So I thought that it would be interesting to create a contrast between the dead and the living, by using a sort of a whispering undead choir set against a solo vocal full of emotion. To get it, I needed a strong performer and I think I found the perfect fit for the game. Hello I am Ire, singer and song writer. I sang on Bound by Flame. I used different sound textures, and sang using unique voices, related to different human emotions like fear, hope… We created an imaginary language. The imaginary language was ideal, as Olivier wanted to explore a human voice and we wanted to be free to express the emotion beyond the words. I hope you will enjoy your journey in Bound by Flame as much as we did creating the music for it. Have fun!
