 Post subject: Myst IV Theme Song
PostPosted: Thu Nov 01, 2012 6:12 pm 
No, I do not want YouTube links. I have a disk with it on, thankyou very much.

Most of us here have played Myst IV at some point. We've all heard the theme song. However, most of us won't have paid much attention to the words being sung. I did, and I want to know what they are. I can only make out a few words, such as comensani expidani, which I recognise from my work on attempting a reconstruction of the Narayani language from Myst III. Jack Wall, the composer of both theme songs, stated that the lyrics use essentially the same language, so these lyrics would be very valuable to me. Can anybody help?

Thanks! Not sure about that wall of horrible Unicode characters... Probably perfect, as others have said, yet completely unintelligible. It would be nice if I could access that pronunciation guide, which I can't...

And none of the rest wholly agree on the lyrics... I might give Jack Wall a try...

Ok, e-mailed Jack, and got a response! It's here if you want a look.

A great idea to directly contact the source, DLordoftime ... :P

The Myst IV theme song seems not to be as deep and meaningful as
the Myst Exile theme song though ... It's great to finally know the correct
spelling and meaning however ... Thanks for the efforts to you and Jack as well ... :D

Fortunately, this is better news for me, as it means that I have more flexibility in my translation, as it only has to satisfy the 'gist' of what Jack says.

It's awesome that you got the translation! Jack's a great fellow as far as I can note from my couple of messages between him in the past.

By the way, in a bit of an off topic manner, if any of you have ever wonded for any reason, Jack does not own the rights to the music for Myst III and IV, Ubisoft does. I had to contact Ubisoft France when I was seeking permission for the theme songs; also, to save you guys any future hastle, they only allow usage of those tracks for student projects. :)

*Bump*

Just letting you know I am revisiting this project. More information will be dished out soon. There is an update on the Narayani website.
