Music of Dreamfall Chapters

{{DISPLAYTITLEMusic of ''Dreamfall Chapters''}}The game's musical score composer is http// Simon Poole. Simon still works for Funcom also, so it wasn't easy for him to find the time for RTG and ''Dreamfall Chapters''. Poole isn't a stranger to the Longest Journey universe – in 2006, he had contributed three tracks to the Music of Dreamfall|''Dreamfall'' Soundtrack (one of which was published under his online name, "https// slipperhero"). He has been with the ''Chapters'' project from very early on, having created music specifically for the 2013 http// teaser trailer already.

Chapters' music features vocals by http// Ingvild Hasund, Simon's wife ("''A Song for Kian''"). Just like Simon, Ingvild has Dreamfall history, having performed the title ''Rush'' of the Music of Dreamfall in 2006. Chapters' Book 1 opens with the vocals of Ingvild and Simon's daughter Selma ("''Prologue''").

In February 2015, Poole's soundtrack for ''Dreamfall Chapters'' Book 1 Reborn received a nomination in the category "Best Original Composition/Gaming" by http// Music+Sound Awards UK (eventual winner was the E3 trailer music for 'Valiant Hearts').

== Book 1 Reborn Soundtrack ==

The soundtrack for Book 1 was released on November 3rd, 2014 to all backers starting with a pledge level of 25$ and up. It is also available to all owners of the ''Dreamfall Chapters Special Edition'' and can be purchased http// via bandcamp.

The ''Dreamfall Chapters'' soundtrack features songs by Norwegian singer/songwriter http// Egil Olsen. Originally, it was planned to incorporate one of his songs per Book; eventually, a total of four ended up in the game. The last scene of Book 1 as well as the rolling credits are accompanied by Olsen's song "''Don't just say you love me, show me''". But he also has an animated alter ego in the game, performing as a street musician in the streets of Propast, a stone's throw from the Collapse Memorial. In Book One, players can listen to "''Singer/Songwriter''" and "''Keep Movin''" here. For Book Five, Olsen contributed his only previously unreleased song "''Fallin''". 

During a Norwegian radio broadcast on October 28th, 2014 (Skolefri live, NRK radio), Olsen has commented on the experience "''When I was 10 I wrote a diary. And at the very start of that diary – I just found it, I'm moving and have only just gotten all of my things to the new place – there was a list. It said that when I grow up, I was going to make an album, and I was going to make computer games – which I kind of feel like I've done now, even though I didn't make the game ...''".Comment taken from a transcript compiled and translated by RTG community moderator khh. 

== Availability of the entire Soundtrack  ==

Kickstarter and Paypal backers of the game have received the entire soundtrack starting with a pledge level of 50$ via their Humble account. RTG has made the entire soundtrack available for purchase on a number of music vending platforms, among them https// bandcamp. 

== The Unofficial Soundtrack Album ==
FileDfcunofficialost.png, designed by Christoffer Grav. 
Following disappointment over a cancelled RTG music contest for Chapters, RTG forum members agirlnamedbob and jlddodger have organised a similar, yet unofficial contest. Entries were uploaded to https// An album cover for the unofficial soundtrack was designed by RTG artist Christoffer Grav (MrGrav on the forums) to support the fan project. Ragnar Tørnquist has expressly welcomed the initiative; Chapters will eventually provide an "easy modding" system that lets players bring their own music into the game – primarily, of course, the Unofficial Soundtrack.
