Here is a collection of 6 environments, soundscapes, ambiences and atmospheres made for The Veil soundtrack, but applicable to any Cyberpunk setting.

Each track is designed to aid but not interfere, looping in the background.
As with the full soundtrack, download provides permission to use any or all parts of this album in your Actual Play streaming, podcasts or other online content which use Cyberpunk ttrpgs such as The Veil.
I've emailed those Cascade Kickstarter backers who chose the Soundtrack add-on for their download, but let me know if you didn't get the email.

Thanks for listening!

+YG Mitchell has released the official soundtrack for The Veil! I've had the pleasure of listening to it already; It sounds amazing and he's also put together a great looking physical product. Check it out!

"As the official soundtrack to Fraser Simons' The Veil and The Veil: Cascade, this concept album has been designed to be a flowing, cohesive experience from start to finish. It can be consumed as a standalone album, to provide preparatory inspiration for game runners, or as soundtrack ambiance during play."

I've been working to build a soundtrack for The Veil RPG and its new supplement Cascade by +Fraser Simons. I thought here might be a nice place to talk about it.

Each playbook has its own theme, with recurrent elements throughout the album, like a world-building leitmotif. There's also a lot of literal sound design - environmental sound, which can be used as setting inspiration, or ambient soundtrack.
The whole album weaves between these literal setting prompts and more figurative musical interpretations, of course cyberpunk-tinged, but I tried to not resort to cliché without good reason.

The longer ambiences are designed to be used individually during play, but they also reflect their place in the album - for example, the first ambience is an aural interpretation of The Veil itself, right at the beginning of the album, and it returns whenever Playbook themes require that digital space.

I'm going to release the full album later this week, but here's a playlist with some preview playbooks and one of the ambiences. I think there's some interesting creative decisions and possibilities, worthy of discussion, and so wanted to share!

One of the 5 ambient environments in the Soundtrack to The Veil: Cascade

CLEAN ZONE - taken from the Cascade setting 'Holistic Blame'.
These ambiences are designed to be consumed within the standalone album, to provide preparatory inspiration for game runners, or as soundtrack ambience during play.

Time for another Soundtrack preview. I think it's going to be a week or two before release and it's very exciting.

THE FUTURIST exists in every time. Mediated by “the program” inside them, they see what is unseen, know the patterns of culture, and cling to a history that will repeat itself.



Part of the blurb I'll be putting on Bandcamp:

"Based on Fraser Simons' The Veil and The Veil:Cascade, this concept album is designed to be heard as a standalone experience, to provide preparatory inspiration for game runners, or as soundtrack ambience during play. "

The Dying
"The Dying is suffering from a non-communicable, debilitating disease that is slowly destroying them. They may or may not be aware of their ultimate demise, but what they are aware of is the symptoms of it. Although their condition also grants them boons, they will succumb to it eventually. There is no cure but there may be hope, grace, or whatever you may wish to find at the end of your tale."

I figured it's time for a preview of the soundtrack album, since Cascade is going to be ready very soon. Apologies the track is unmastered, but the full double album will be finished, mixed and mastered this month.

Kickstarter backers will already have heard The Apparatus preview in a recent update but i wanted one to go here too. There's a big mixture of soundtrack music both ambient and more structured as well as cyberpunk soundscapes.

Hope you like it, I'll keep you posted about the full album's release, which will contain a track for each of the 18 Veil+Cascade Playbooks, plus 5 ambient cyberpunk environments. There will also be a 'deluxe' soundtrack version with an additional 5 environment soundscapes available to Cascade backers who choose it as an add-on to their pledge.

Miss anything at Gauntlet Con?
we've compiled the playlists with the games we played together and all the panels.

If your game isn't on any list and you feel that it should be, it's either because i missed the posting at the time, or the video is classified as 'Unlisted', in which case i need your permission to make it available to the general public.

We're currently at 48 of 93 games so you're welcome to message me with a link to your game and I'll hurry to add it to the appropriate playlist
