about

Edelweiss is the debut entry in the GDA Sound Dungeon’s summer mixtapes, a project where a group of up-and-coming video game composers practice writing music to a theme.

The story of Edelweiss follows Edel, a synthesized human being sleeping in a mysterious database called The Garden. Built to house humanity’s memories after their demise, The Garden is sent into space along with Edel to search for another planet capable of life. Edel awakes in a vast meadow and discovers that each flower she finds gives her visions of other people's lives and emotions. As she begins to explore, The Garden also shows her humanity’s darker feelings. Gradually, Edel come to terms with each emotion she encounters, before reaching the shoreline of a new planet, hope in humanity renewed.

Each song featured in this mixtape follows a chapter in Edel's adventure and the feelings she finds. As you listen, we hope these songs transport you alongside her journey.

Track Name: Σsion - A Letter to You
Lyrics by Madeleine Glenn:

This is my one song for you
So you'll find happy days
Let this hope of mine carry you though

Even if we disappeared
Leaving only flowers
I am here next to you
This is my letter for you

Traveling to far away planets
many light years pass
Brilliant stream of comets bursting forth
Leading us to the END

Second times gone long ago
Choking on my lonely words
Frolicking like nothing has gone wrong inside
System shutdowns won't hurt me
So I will write
To the future that hides behind these billions of lights

(Dear Edelweiss. I know that you’re somewhere in space. I don’t know how many light years away you are, or if you can even see earth anymore. But know this. Everyone here is waiting for you, cheering. You carry all of our memories, bitter and sweet. And with that i hope, that this wish of mine reaches you, to show you how beautiful our world could be.)

Far beyond the last horizon where planetary orbits collide
Forming dahlias and roses, for the ones that were forgotten
This is our record of a lifetime, chrysanthemum and lily
Let the past be forgiven, let the past be your guidance
