“Familiar Faces” – C418Posted: May 30, 2012
C418 makes quite a lot of music outside the world of Minecraft though. This track ‘Familiar Faces’ comes from his early 2011 ‘Little Things’ album, and reflects the difinitive ambience that he works through a lot of his music. Other tracks like the 8-minute ‘Timelapse Kingdom’, shows his integration with a more ‘techno’ feel, yet still retains the transcendent atmosphere that C418 does so well. When asked about what his inspiration is though, C418 replied that over time he’s really come to “hate that word”. Inspiration becomes misunderstood with subconsciously ‘stealing’ other peoples music it seems, and that ultimately he never “wants to” rip off one of his idols, but subconsciously, no-one “can really help it”.
Little known to some, C418 is also responsible for many other various sounds found throughout the game Minecraft. One such sound being that the eerie cry of a ‘Ghast’ is actually a recording of C418′s cat. C418 is currently working on ‘Volume Beta’ for Minecraft, which hopefully will be eventually intergrated within the game, as well as plans for it to be used for the upcoming documentary on the making-process of the game itself.
