Minecraft Volume Alpha

Electronic Limited copies come with free postcards Minecraft is a dreamscape a limitless world where anything is possible Minecraft is a tool a means of bringing the imagination to life Minecraft is a community a platform on which inventive minds of all ages can share their creations and ideas Minecraft of course is also a game the most popular and bestselling video game of all time Originally created in 2009 by Swedish programmer Markus 'Notch' Persson this cultural phenomenon speaks volumes of our current zeitgeist's love for virtual spaces but its unprecedented success couldn't be pinned on one factor alone Countless layers of thoughtful artistry flow through Minecraft's singular experience not the least of which is its transportive soundtrack And now for the first time since releasing digitally in 2011 the music of Minecraft will be issued on specialedition vinyl and CD by Ghostly International Minecraft Volume Alpha is the work of German composer and musician Daniel Rosenfeld Using C418 as his moniker Rosenfeld crafted the sweeping soundtrack and vibrant sound design which helped breathe life into Minecraft's voxelbased universe Fans and critics were universally enamored with his beatless nuanced electronic pieces upon release Popular gaming site Kotaku named it among The Best Game Music of 2011 calling the music 'remarkably soothing' and The Guardian has compared Rosenfeld's delicate piano and sparse ambient motifs to legendary artists Erik Satie and Brian Eno In an interview feature with C418 Polygon distilled Volume Alphato its essence It's not bound by the retro aesthetic of Minecraft's graphics It transcends them The album is an attempt to uplift the combined game music experience into the sublime But for all of the critical praise C418's crowning achievement has to be his insatiable fan base the seemingly endless swath of players and listeners who treat his music like gospel They are exactly who this physical release of the Minecraft soundtrack was conceived for though Ghostly hopes to bring Rosenfeld's music to a whole new audience as well As any cursory listen of the touching sounds will reveal this isn't a record meant solely for lifelong gamers and MineCon diehards anyone in love with ambient neoclassical or minimal music needs to hear Volume AlphaLP Black VinylLP Limitededition LP on coloured vinyl
