SoundRadar Episode 4 - Minecraft with Daniel Rosenfeld (C418)

Happy new year everyone! To kick off 2012, we decided to go with one of the biggest indie titles of last year (or ever). Minecraft has sold millions, even before it was officially released. Not too shabby for an independent studio and it's a definitely plus for anyone who is attached to the project - like composer Daniel Rosenfeld, also known as C418. Those who have played Minecraft know that the music isn't what you'd initially expect, but the tranquil tunes do eventually grow on you. 

The Host and Guest

The Content

The sale may be over but we took the time to talk about the Game Music Bundle (similar to the Humble Bundle) where indie composers pool their music together and sell it to gamers for an extremely low price. Daniel shares his thoughts on the music and sounds of Minecraft and promises that there will be more.


Daniel has provided multiple codes for the Minecraft soundtrack so answer the trivia question in the podcast either below in the comments or email for a chance to win!

    Haven't heard much of C418's stuff, but I love what I have heard. Has a beautiful mellow style.

    The answer is because his cat jumped on his lap and he needed a name.

    Cat was (hopefully, as far as I can tell) inspired by Daniel's cat, which I forgot the cat's name :( Sorry Dan!

    also, to add, Dan hates the song Cat, lol.

    Erm... I don't know if it's just me, but when I click to download, it says "404 error - Page not found". And I've tried this both on my home and in the computer at work. Anyone else having this problem? any idea what could be causing it?
  • GR_SophiaTong - January 4, 2012 5:37 p.m.

    It should be fixed, try again?

    I had the same issue; found the podcast here:
  • Austin_SJ - January 4, 2012 3:32 p.m.

    I picked up the soundtack in the humble music bundle. I listened to it once but I guess I have to go listen again, to see if it grows on me.

    Any chance we'll be getting an RSS feed any time soon?
  • GR_SophiaTong - January 4, 2012 1:33 p.m.

    The feed is here, although it's better if you come listen to it through the site :P

    Yay soundradar! ^^ And ooh! I admit myself completely ignorant of the Minecraft Music as I have never played the game, but this should be interesting to listen to.
