Dirtmouth

Dirtmouth played by Gary Lloyd

This is from a computer game called “Hollow Knight”. The track as I heard it seems too long, like it’s been “padded”, and I guess that works great if you are in the game. But for a stand-alone piece it seems too much the same, too monotonous, so I stuck pretty close to the notes but made a large cut to get something that I think is tighter dramatically.

Then I added a transposition, a modulation, that was suggested by original. Now, I think, there is more contrast, more highs and lows.

  1. I haven’t been able to go on the computer for almost a full week but I absolutely adore this transcription of the Dirtmouth theme. It still fits really well and it feels like a slightly more lively version of the in game music.
