German musician, producer and sound engineer

"Daniel Rosenfeld" redirects here. It is not to be confused with Daniel Rosenfeldt.

Musical artist

Daniel Rosenfeld (born 9 May 1989[4]), better known by his stage name C418 (pronounced "cee four eighteen"),[5] is a German musician, producer and sound engineer, best known as the composer and sound designer for the sandbox video game Minecraft. He has also written and produced the theme for Beyond Stranger Things.[6]

Early life[edit]

Rosenfeld was born and grew up in East Germany in 1989, the son of a Soviet-born father of German descent working as a goldsmith and a German mother. He learned to create music on early versions of Schism Tracker and Ableton Live in the early 2000s, both rudimentary tools at the time.[7] It was his brother, Harry Rosenfeld, who introduced him to music composition through Ableton Live, commenting that "even an idiot" can successfully create music with it.[5] His brother was also known as C818, from which he chose the name C418, claiming that the name is "really cryptic and doesn't actually mean anything".[8]

History and career[edit]

2006–2009: Career beginnings[edit]

After being introduced to music production by Rosenfeld's brother, Daniel started releasing music on Bandcamp after Danny Baranowsky suggested releasing his music on the site.[9]

In 2007, Rosenfeld started a blog known as "Blödsinn am Mittwoch" (English: "Silliness on Wednesday")[10], where he posted a new song every week. This was around the same time when he became interested in game development and audio, which resulted in him joining the indie game development forum TIGSource, where he became involved with numerous smaller games and game developers[11] (among them, Rosenfeld unofficially released the soundtracks of Zombie Dog in Crazyland and Mubbly Tower on his site[12] and old blog[13]). Later, Rosenfeld started making albums and releasing them on the blog and also Bandcamp, as a hobby.[11]

His first release was the 2007 EP BPS, and shortly thereafter, in 2008, he challenged himself to make a studio album as quickly as possible, for fun, prioritizing quantity over quality, The Whatever Director's Cut was released on his blog as BAM #30 and on his Bandcamp[14], where it was available until it was removed in 2013, due to Rosenfeld's dislike of the album.

Also in 2008, Rosenfeld released Mixes, a 25-minute medley containing remixes of songs previously posted on the blog, also were released the EP Sine, and his second studio album Zweitonegoismus, the album expressed his feelings working in an assembly line factory. Rosenfeld showed the album to his co-worker prior to releasing it, in which they asked "why the hell [he was] still working there".[15].

His third studio album, Bushes and Marshmallows, is loosely related to his blog, titled Blödsinn am Mittwoch. It is not a translation to English, as that loosely translates to "silliness on Wednesday"[16]. It was also his first album not to be released on the blog.

2009–2013: Minecraft, becoming a freelance composer, and One[edit]

In early 2009, Rosenfeld began collaborating with the Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson through an internet forum called TIGSource. Rosenfeld was responsible for the sound effects and music in Persson's work-in-progress video game Minecraft. The sound engine in the still young Java game was not very powerful, so Rosenfeld had to be creative in his approach to creating sound effects and music.[7]

In January 2010, fourth studio album A Cobblers Tee Thug, a collaborative work with Rosenfeld's friend Sohnemann was released[17]. Made in the few days they spent together in the New Year, and they challenged each other, for fun, to make a full-length LP together in those days.[18]

That year was also released the album Circle, the soundtrack for a 2008 unreleased indie game bearing the same name, created by an unknown developer.[19]

In August 2010, Rosenfeld released Life Changing Moments Seem Minor in Pictures. The album was recorded while Rosenfeld was still residing within Germany,[20] and at the time of releasing the album, Rosenfeld was requested to work for military services after quitting his job, in which he instead did other labour.[21] The album also contains the original soundtrack to Ezo, a game Rosenfeld independently developed for Ludum Dare.[22]

In 2011 a series of compilation albums with songs from various projects were released on Bandcamp for free, including Little Things[23], I Forgot Something, Didn't I.[24] (this one specifically is a B-side to 72 Minutes of Fame) and Seven Years of Server Data.[25]

While still working on Minecraft as a freelance artist, Rosenfeld was not on staff at Mojang Studios,[26] the company behind Minecraft. Rosenfeld still owns the rights to all his music in the game,[27] and has released two albums featuring songs from the Minecraft soundtrack.[26] The first soundtrack, Minecraft – Volume Alpha, was digitally released on 4 March 2011 on his Bandcamp page.

Later that year, when Minecraft became available to the general public as an early access title, it rapidly became popular. Rosenfeld, who up until that point had worked at an assembly line, could now pursue music as his primary source of income.[11] This inspired his 2011 studio album, 72 Minutes of Fame. The content of this album mostly revolves around this lifestyle-defining moment in Rosenfeld's life.[28] This album was the first of Rosenfeld's works to have a (limited) physical release. The Guardian has compared his compositions to those of Brian Eno and Erik Satie because of their minimalistic, ambient quality.[7]

Almost half a year later, production on a documentary of the development of Minecraft started, titled Minecraft: The Story of Mojang. Rosenfeld was requested to create the soundtrack for this documentary, which was included on his 2012 album, One.[29]

2013–2016: Minecraft - Volume Beta, 0x10c, and other independent projects[edit]

On 9 November 2013, Rosenfeld released the second album of the official soundtrack for Minecraft, titled Minecraft – Volume Beta. Many of the new songs were being added into features of the game that were not present when the first batch of music was produced; i.e. the Nether or the End.[30] In 2020, the soundtrack was released in physical format with Ghostly International[31] and reprints of the Minecraft - Volume Alpha physical releases were also released. The Volume Beta releases consisted of a double CD edition of the album, a vinyl record which came in black and a red "fire" splatter color, and a limited edition of the vinyl pressed on a magenta translucent material[32] which was at first exclusive to Europe but was later re-pressed internationally.

Persson and Rosenfeld worked together again after Minecraft's success on the creation of a new game, titled 0x10c. The game was never released, with Persson halting production indefinitely in August 2013.

In 2014, Rosenfeld released an EP containing the music made for 0x10c. It was released digitally with little publicity; Rosenfeld simply sent out a tweet stating that it was available.[33]

In 2015, Rosenfeld released 148, which much like 72 Minutes of Fame carried a significant amount of personal content, albeit slightly more hidden under lyrics and effects.[34]

Later that year, Minecraft - Volume Alpha soundtrack was released on a physical format on Ghostly International.[3] This release consisted of a regular CD edition of the album, a vinyl edition which came with a code for a digital copy of the album, and a limited edition of the album pressed on green translucent vinyl.[35]

In the same year, Rosenfeld hinted at a potential upcoming third album for Minecraft's soundtrack, stating "I'll still work on Minecraft, so there’ll probably be another album".[36] In 2017, Rosenfeld confirmed the future release, claiming the album is "still far from done".[37]

2016–2021: 2 Years of Failure, Excursions, and further independent music[edit]

Rosenfeld released 2 Years of Failure in 2016, a Bandcamp exclusive compilation album of music made for failed projects or songs that could not fit anywhere else.[38] Several songs in this album were made for an abandoned game Rosenfeld described as having a "...Japanese puzzle exchange..." vibe. This album also contains the original soundtrack for Crayon Physics.[38] Most notably, this album contains C418's remix of the Stranger Things theme song, which had staggering popularity in 2018. It was the most played song on Rosenfeld's personal SoundCloud page until it was removed[39] along with several other tracks due to a lapsed SoundCloud Pro subscription.[40]

He released Dief in 2017.[41] The songs of this album were created and used as a soundtrack for an informative talk given at the Game Developers Conference 2017 by Teddy Dief.[42]

After the "Update Aquatic" update of 2018, three new songs were added to the game as underwater music.[43] These songs – "Dragon Fish", "Shuniji", "Axolotl" – were released by Rosenfeld respectively on August 9, November 10, and December 12, 2018, on Spotify as singles. All of them are to be included in the third album. Rosenfeld confirmed on Twitter[44] that the third album will not be called "Minecraft: Volume Gamma" following the pattern from the 2 Minecraft albums before it.

On 20 July 2018, Rosenfeld announced a studio album, Excursions, with the release of its lead single, "Beton".[45] Its second single, "Thunderbird", was released on 20 August 2018.[46] The album was released on 7 September 2018.[47] Multiple tracks on Excursions are named after cafes in Austin, Texas, where Rosenfeld currently lives as of 2017.

Excursions was released on CD and a limited vinyl LP by Driftless Recordings in January 2019[48] and reprinted in 2021 for CD and Vinyl.[49]

In 2020, after the announcement of the addition of Steve to the game, his work was not included in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for various undisclosed reasons, though one explanation given was it being too calm for fighting.[50] Tracks other composers made for Minecraft Legacy Console Edition, Minecraft Dungeons, and Minecraft Earth were added instead.

During an interview in January 2021 with Anthony Fantano, when asked if a potential third installment in the soundtrack was in the works, Rosenfeld responded with "I have something, I consider it finished, but things have become complicated especially as Minecraft is now a big property. So I don't know".[51]

In May 2021, Rosenfeld released Branching Out.[52] The EP contains the soundtrack to Branch, a video conferencing software by Dayton Mills.[53]

2021–present: Life Changing Moments Seem Minor in Pictures remaster, Ivy Road and Cookie Clicker[edit]

On 16 June 2021, Rosenfeld announced on Twitter[54] that his album from 11 years prior, Life Changing Moments Seem Minor in Pictures would be remastered and released onto major streaming platforms. The album prior to the re-release was only available on Bandcamp.[18]

In July 2021, Rosenfeld, along with Davey Wreden,[55] Karla Zimonja and Annapurna Interactive announced the launch of Ivy Road,[56] a game studio founded by Wreden and co-founded by Zimonja.[57] The studio is working on an untitled game, in which Rosenfeld is composing the music for.[58]

Following the announcement of the launch of Ivy Road, in August 2021 Rosenfeld announced that he had worked on a soundtrack for the 2013 game, Cookie Clicker,[59] as it is being released onto Steam.[60]

Music of Minecraft

Music from the video game Minecraft

The music of the video game Minecraft was primarily composed by German musician Daniel Rosenfeld, better known as C418.[1] In the legacy console editions of the game, there are 12 additional songs available in DLC for the game, composed by Gareth Coker. Later on in the game's history, Lena Raine and Kumi Tanioka composed several tracks for the game. The game's soundtrack is mostly instrumental ambient music. It has been praised by critics;[2] in 2011, the video game blog Kotaku chose the soundtrack as one of the best video game soundtracks of that year.[3]Minecraft's soundtrack was released across four soundtrack albums: Minecraft - Volume Alpha (2011) and Minecraft - Volume Beta (2013) by C418, Minecraft: Nether Update (2020) and Minecraft: Caves & Cliffs (2021) by Lena Raine, with the latter containing three tracks by Kumi Tanioka. The albums include music featured in the game, as well as other music included in trailers, and instrumentals that were not included in the game's final release.[4] In 2015, Rosenfeld hinted at a potential upcoming third album for Minecraft's soundtrack.[5] In 2017, Rosenfeld confirmed the future release, claiming the album "is still far from done".


In a panel at MineCon in 2012, Rosenfeld stated that he has had a long-term interest in video games, and was involved with several video game communities.[7] He met Markus Persson in an Internet Relay Chat (IRC), and began composing music for Minecraft when the game was in its very early stages as a tech demo.[8] The two shared interest in Aphex Twin, and exchanged each other's projects. Both were impressed by each other's work, and eventually, Persson chose to pair Rosenfeld's music with his game.[9]


Danny Baranowsky had previously suggested that Rosenfeld upload his music to the online music platform Bandcamp.[7] On 4 March 2011, Rosenfeld released the game's first soundtrack album, Minecraft - Volume Alpha, on his Bandcamp account.[4] The album was later released on other digital download services.[10] On 9 November 2013, Rosenfeld released the second soundtrack album, Minecraft - Volume Beta.[11][8] On 21 August 2015, a physical release of Minecraft - Volume Alpha, consisting of CDs, black vinyl, and limited-edition transparent green vinyl LPs, was issued by acclaimed indie electronic label Ghostly International.[12][13]

In 2014, console editions of Minecraft received downloadable content containing holiday themed music, which was also composed by Rosenfeld.[14]

Minecraft - Volume Alpha[edit]

On 4 March 2011, C418 released Minecraft - Volume Alpha, the first Minecraft soundtrack album, and his seventh studio album overall.[4] The album comprises most of the music featured in the game, as well as other music included in trailers, and instrumentals that were not included in the game's final release. On the topic of the songs in Minecraft - Volume Alpha, Rosenfeld stated:

I like to add more stuff to the songs that are in the game because I feel that players are probably not as interested in buying music that's already in the game. So, extending the album into a more cohesive piece that can be played on its own feels better than just taking all of the sound files and slapping them onto an album.[16]

The album was met with positive reviews, with Andy Kellman from AllMusic praising its replay value, stating that "none of the recurring elements is pronounced or simple enough to become fatiguing with repeated play"[15]

Minecraft - Volume Beta[edit]

On 9 November 2013, C418 released Minecraft - Volume Beta, the second Minecraft soundtrack album, and his tenth studio album overall.[11] The album includes newer music that was added into the game after the release of Minecraft - Volume Alpha, as well as other music exclusive to the album. Tracks 20 to 29 consist of the audio from 10 of the 13 in-game "music discs" that can be found by players of the game. The album has a generally darker tone than its precursor; Rosenfeld claims that "the tone [of the album] is both more positive and at times very dark".[17]

The album was completely self-released by Rosenfeld, and appeared on the BillboardDance/Electronic Albums chart, peaking at number 14.[18]

Minecraft: Nether Update (Original Game Soundtrack)[edit]

An EP was produced by Lena Raine titled Minecraft: Nether Update on 14 June 2020. The EP contains five tracks introduced into the 1.16 update of Minecraft. Mojang originally requested Raine a demo soundtrack based on her previous album, Oneknowing. Raine initially felt intimidated due to the game's score being highly acclaimed. Raine benefited from the game being already accessible and played the Nether world for inspiration. Raine was provided with three-minute looping tracks as samples of what the Nether would provide. Raine used the tracks to further inspire the composition of the songs and intended to make it sound as if the song was emerging from the ambient tracks.[20] Raine noted that one of the primary instruments used for the music of Minecraft is the piano and challenged herself to use piano and modify the sound to make it sound like something else entirely.[21]

On 20 October 2021, the fourth official release of the Minecraft soundtrack was released, with songs written and produced by Lena Raine and Kumi Tanioka, a Japanese songwriter known for working on Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. The album contains ten tracks that will be introduced in Minecraft 1.18 update, "Otherside", composed by Raine, is a new in-game music disc.[22]

Upcoming C418 album[edit]

In 2015, Rosenfeld hinted at a potential upcoming third album for Minecraft's soundtrack, stating "I'll still work on Minecraft, so there'll probably be another album".[5] In 2017, Rosenfeld confirmed the future release, claiming the album "is still far from done".

After the "Update Aquatic" update of 2018, three new songs were added to the game as underwater music. These songs – "Dragon Fish", "Shuniji", "Axolotl" – were released by Rosenfeld respectively on August 9, November 10, and December 12, 2018, on Spotify as singles. All of them are to be included in the third album.[citation needed] Rosenfeld confirmed on Twitter that the third album will not be called "Volume Gamma"[23] and it will be longer than the previous two albums combined (which in total is over three hours and 18 minutes).

On 8 January 2021, Rosenfeld was asked in an interview with Anthony Fantano whether or not there was still a third volume of the soundtrack in the works. Rosenfeld responded that "I have something, I consider it finished, but things have become complicated especially as Minecraft is now a big property. So I don't know".[24]


Minecraft - Volume Alpha and Beta were first released on Rosenfeld's Bandcamp account, and later released on other digital download and streaming services.[10] On 21 August 2015, a physical release of Alpha, consisting CD and vinyl, was issued by Ghostly International.[12]Minecraft – Volume Beta was released physically in 2020.[25]


The soundtrack's minimalistic and melancholic composition has been praised by critics.[2] On the topic of the music's minimalism, Rosenfeld has stated that it was "unavoidable", as "Minecraft has a terrible sound engine".[8] The ambient music style of the soundtrack has been compared to the works of Brian Eno, Erik Satie, Aphex Twin, and Vangelis.[8][16] In 2018, The Boar described the soundtrack's composition as "nostalgia in its purest form".[31]

No.Title Filename in MinecraftLength Track preview "Description" on Bandcamp Description 1."Key"nuance1.ogg1:05opensA quiet, distant, sparse melody played on an echoing piano, ending on a single, more heavily echoed note, which leads into the next track. 2."Door"—1:51Welcome!A bright remix of "Minecraft" played on multiple instruments, including a flute. 3."Subwoofer Lullaby"hal1.ogg3:28Imagine a forest with a subwoofer on overdrive...A mid-tempo, calm, almost melancholy tune played on distant, soft synths layered with a reverbed organ and accompanied by plucked strings. The tune suddenly stops with a single note that rings out and a glitchy ambient noise in the background, beginning a quieter, less rhythmic section with more tense, drawn out chords being played by space-y ambient synths and the lead synth and organ, along with some quiet strings. A muffled, echoed piano and a harp play a pensive melody over the string chords, which get a bit louder and layered with higher octaves as the chords slowly resolve, before the piece finally settles on a soft repetition of three piano notes over a single, low-octave string chord, pausing between repetitions as it gets quieter. 4."Death"—0:41Totally worth it thoughA piano softly plays a playful tune in the background as the sounds of a player sneaking up on and killing a chicken and gathering its meat can be heard. 5."Living Mice"hal2.ogg2:57Yes, I mean you.An inquisitive tune that begins with a looping 4-note pattern being played on an electric piano that can be heard throughout the track. The electric piano and some warm synths play a melody over this pattern.

The piece later intensifies, with a harp, grand string chords, a piano, and a glockenspiel playing a more emotional section before the track ends by fading out with the same 4-note pattern, but with the addition of the harp and the glockenspiel.

6."Moog City"—2:40Imagine that!A looping, ascending melody being played on a synth, accompanied by synth voices, plucked strings, and a glockenspiel. 7."Haggstrom"hal3.ogg3:24MHG MHG MHGA cheerful, bright, hopeful-sounding melody being played on a kalimba (perhaps with some other chime instruments as well, such as a celesta or a glockenspiel), with a plucked bass and occasional string chords. The melody rises in intensity and the string chords become more drawn out and layered as a piano and a harp are layered with the kalimba and some quiet woodwinds join in to harmonize with the chords. After the chords stop, the piano, layered with a muffled glockenspiel, quietly plays some more of the melody before stopping.

Warm, plucky, echoing synths (or possibly a muffled harp sound) quietly fade in, playing mechanically staccato chords. A harp begins to softly play over them and the plucked bass continues quietly as what sounds like a trumpet distantly echoes in the background, before a louder glockenspiel begins playing a sparse melody, with reverse chimes echoing the melody and echoing synths in the background playing light staccato chords. These sounds become surrounded by grand, sweeping synths and strings playing chords as a harp plays an accompaniment. The chords stop and all of the instruments slowly fade out, leaving just the plucky synths as the track ends.

8."Minecraft"calm1.ogg4:14The very first and last song.The Minecraft theme. Consists of a chiming sound playing a calm melody that begins to loop and is later joined by melancholy string chords, strummed or plucked strings (possibly a harp or a guitar) and a glockenspiel, as well as some ambient synth sounds in the background. 9."Oxygène"nuance2.ogg1:05Accidental reference obviously.A very short ambient piece consisting of distant, windy, chiptune-style synths and an echoed piano playing a mysterious musical flourish. 10."Équinoxe"—1:54No reference in here!11."Mice on Venus"piano3.ogg4:41Or mars.A bittersweet track that begins with rising and falling synths playing an ambient intro, before a piano joins in and plays some more chords with them. The synth chords stop as a synth bass joins the piano, which plays part of a sparse melody before the synth chords come back in, with strings this time, to harmonize with the melody. An echoing celesta pattern can be heard in the background before all sounds but the piano stop and the piano continues the melody. The piano slows down and hangs on a high chord before descending to a resolving chord and then a second chord with the synth bass. While the chord rings out, an echoing violin playing a variation on the previous celesta pattern can be heard. Suddenly, some synths and plucked strings begin playing a happier, bouncing rhythm and woodwinds play a musical flourish and strings begin to play chords. A glockenspiel or a celesta plays a bouncing, descending melody. 12."Dry Hands"piano1.ogg1:08Yep!A solo piano piece with a mildly gloomy tone. It begins with distant, loose chords and then fades into a clearer sound as the piece gains more structure. 13."Wet Hands"piano2.ogg1:30And cold too.A simple, calm piano piece consisting mostly of floaty arpeggios. During one part, a very muffled triangle can be heard. 14."Clark"calm2.ogg3:11<3Opens with some quiet, sad string chords, which are joined by a piano, a synth bass, and a celesta, which play a pensive melody. Ends with a resonant, warm synth playing chords and then somewhat abruptly stopping and ringing out. 15."Chris"—1:27He likes it.Essentially an extension of "Clark". It begins with the same synth sound that "Clark" ends with, playing chords in the same key. The synth chords are joined by the synth bass playing an accompaniment before it becomes a more upbeat, though bittersweet piece with a whistling synth and some light percussion. 16."Thirteen"13.ogg2:56No human was harmed in the making of this recording.An ominous ambient track that mostly consists of echoing, discordant synths and features many ambient sounds related to the game's caves in the background. It is very sonically similar to a lot of the ambient cave noises. 17."Excuse"—2:04...A sparse, somewhat eerie track that consists of a piano playing a sad piece with slightly discordant chords that echo as if in a cave (sometimes with a vibrato effect applied). 18."Sweden"calm3.ogg3:35Wonderful countryA very calm track that mainly consists of soft, somber piano chords that loop and are joined by strings later, which somewhat abruptly stop after a while, leaving the piano alone. After a brief pause, pizzicato strings quietly play the melody before the piano comes back and finishes the song with a glockenspiel and harp accompaniment. 19."Cat"cat.ogg3:06You know what they say - curiosity killed the cat.An inquisitive, playful tune played on warm, bubbly synths, which are later joined by chiptune-like synths and soft synth percussion. The piece is very upbeat and hopeful compared to other tracks, but it has a wistful undertone. 20."Dog"—2:25I don't know about dogs though...A sort of "sequel" to "Cat", featuring a variation of the melody, as well as many of the same sounds. 21."Danny"hal4.ogg4:14All his faultA muffled piano quietly plays a pensive melody before a synth suddenly starts playing a somewhat sad melody and is joined by other chiptune-like synths.

The second half of the track has a happier, more hopeful tone and features heavy trickling, dripping sounds and a percussive, rhythmic, chiptune-like sound effect that plays in the background. The track ends with the piano, layered with a muffled celesta, playing a calm arpeggiated chord a few times and getting quieter.

22."Beginning"—1:42All his fault23."Droopy likes ricochet"—1:36Featured in the video on minecraft.netMuffled, reverbed synth drums begin playing a mid-tempo beat before fading into a fuller sound, beginning a calm, cruising synth piece with an echoing "meow" sound and chopped up samples of a robotic voice. 24."Droopy likes your face"—1:56Not featured in the video on minecraft.net but nontheless [sic] completes the songAn extension of "Droopy likes ricochet". Unlike the previous track, it contains more drums and a wind instrument. Around 0:39, there are samples of the voice storybook "Droopy the Dragon". The voice probably says "Droopy looks in a cave, No one is there, Droopy looks under a tree, Droopy is enormous."

When the makeup was ready, I did not recognize myself in the mirror: green hair, pale face, scars, tattoos and red lips. With a sarcastic grin, I said that there was no better makeup to be desired. Suddenly the doorbell rang, Nastya said that it was her mother, and I had better go into the next room, which I did immediately, because my mother. Might not understand what an unfamiliar man with a painted face was doing at their house, even though she was in her daughter's profession, but did not expect that men would use her services.

Nika, you need to bake. Bread, but the dough will not reach the dinner meal. While we said the prayer, Nika talked to my husband. Pashenka, good morning, my sun. Pash, we have collected everything that is valuable here.

Now discussing:

He will sleep wonderfully for these two hours, and no one will notice. There won't be any subconscious clairvoyant this time. I could not resist stripping naked and examining myself in a new body. Actually, I knew Taylor's body well, before Taylor doesn't want to look at me.
