Following on from our ‘Music for Babies’ series, we thought we’d have a look at ‘Music for Computer games’ next. I’m not one to play computer games but I recently came across some articles about an indie game called Minecraft that is causing quite a stir in the games world. What is interesting for me is some of the music that is being created for the game.
It is being composed by Daniel Rosenfeld, otherwise known as C418 and it reminds me of several artists including Aphex Twin’s ambient works. It has a very “analogue” sound but to these ears it is lovely, lovely stuff. If you have any suggestions of other music from computer games, please add them below.
