Music Monday: Byzantium

Another Music Monday, another piece by Jesper Kyd, this one coming from the AC: Revelations soundtrack.

This is easily one of my favourite tracks from the Revelations soundtrack. The melody is picked out in various ways, from plucked strings to played on the cello to a layered mix of vocal and strings and it ebbs and flows like the tides around the Hellespont, a fact that’s emphasised with some in clever percussion. It’s quiet and contemplative, but it’s also complex enough to listen to over and over and still find new bits.

Within Valkyrie it represents the calm after the storm in young!Kari’s journey. Time to think and learn and recover…if she can.

The Elsehere Soundtrack on Spotify has been updated to add this in.

That’s all for now. Happy reading and listening!
