Electric Crystal Bodies is intended as a soundtrack for a campaign of the RPG Numenéra I’m playing with some friends. I was mainly inspired by the area we are currently exploring: The Cloudcrystal Skyfields, but also by the general feel of the game: mysterious, a blend of science fiction and fantasy. I looked for songs mostly by word association with the title, but since my collection quite often meshes together nicely, making a coherent mix out of it didn’t prove too difficult. So, a journey through strange landscapes, encounters with ancient advanced technologies, and a rocking bonus track at the end. Enjoy!
