The artist of digital music known as Siddhartha Barnhoorn has released his latest LP record album, titled “Antichamber.” The album is the soundtrack to the highly popular and critically acclaimed video game of the same name, which is comprised of eight original compositions by Barnhoorn as well as a bonus track, for an approximate total listening time of well over an hour. The content of Barnhoorn's soundtrack, “Antichamber,” falls into the ambient electronica subgenre of music, and makes for an excellent audio addition to any modern environment.
“Antichamber,” the game (available for purchase from Steam, link below) has been lauded by gamers and journalists as a highly sophisticated puzzle game for intellectuals and casual gamers alike. A wonderland of psychological conundrums and tasks that challenge the player's usual perspective, Barnhoorn's soundtrack is likewise complex and simple and the same time, itself a beautifully concise paradox of sonic experience.
Speaking of his artistic aims for the music, Barnhoorn writes, “Inside the game itself the music is made up of layers which crossfade into each other, creating an evolving piece of ambient music which never has the same elements and/or layers on top of one another. These evolve in texture the further you venture into the world of Antichamber.”
When listened to in a linear fashion, rather than experiencing them through the game for which they were composed, the multifaceted layers of “Antichamber” make for remarkably relaxing, intriguing music that creates a fabulous mental backdrop for reading, studying, meditation, or simply relaxing. Their open-ended nature also serve well as mood music for any classy affair or place of business, and make any living room feel like a pleasant, private little paradise.
Barnhoorn cites as main artistic influences music by Steve Roach, Robert Fripp and Alpha Wave Movement, but also such artists not belonging to the electronic genre such as John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, and Trevor Jones.
“Antichamber” by Siddhartha Barnhoorn is available online everywhere.
