Daniel Rosenfeld was interviewed for a Minecraft Monday show by Bebop Vox back in 2011. This is an interesting discussion about:
How C418 met Notch
How much does C418 play Minecraft
What C418 thinks of musical inspiration
His involvement in the 2 Player Productions Minecraft Documentary
C418’s releases after Alpha and Minecraft
The challenge of fitting more music into Minecraft
What it’s like making a living from music in this age
Daniel is obviously very talented but also a very humble guy and he takes the massive success of his work along with Minecraft and he considers himself very lucky, downplaying the role of his talent in this success.
Is C418 the most successful musician of video game music?
What’s funny is the way he keeps referring to Notch as Markus. I keep forgetting Notch is Markus!
The wonderful soundtrack by C418 which plays in Minecraft has been available for sale for a while. You can get the whole album for a great price, but do shop around. People who don’t like video games enough to even try Minecraft may even love this music!
But what if you want to play it yourself on your own piano or keyboard? Did you know that sheet music arranger Sebastian Wolff has created MIDI and Sheet Music for many of the tracks in Minecraft?
