Composer Daniel Ran - Beyond Skyrim: Bruma (Ep. 31) - The Annotator Podcast | Soundtrack |

Beyond Skyrim: Bruma is an unofficial Skyrim expansion that revisits established themes from the award-winning soundtrack by Jeremy Soule while also incorporating influences from the Far East.

In the game mod, players can travel beyond the borders of Skyrim and explore Bruma, the northernmost county in Cyrodiil where they can delve into the Ayleid ruins, meddle in local affairs or explore the wilds.  

Beyond Skyrim: Bruma is composer Daniel Ran’s first composition project of this kind and in this episode he talks the challenge of writing new music of his own that would compliment pieces from Jeremy Soule’s original score. He also shares about how he came to write for and work with a choir for the first time on one of the games key pieces.  Lastly he reveals how working on this particular project had the surprising effect of making music feel “more real” to him.
