myriads is an electronic music project doing unique translations of biblical poetry & setting them to music with the spoken word of the bible as the vocal. many classical composers have set psalms to music, including modern christian composers like stravinsky & ives & jewish composers like steve reich.
the first of these psalm settings to be completed is electricpsalm150, the most musical of the psalms. it specifies definite musical sounds: trumpet, lute, harp, strings, flute, tambourine & cymbals, along with singing & dancing. these are the sounds used prominently in this composition, following the psalmist.
