Chapter II

What is Chapter II? 

Skyrim's soundtrack is my favorite score of all time. Not necessarily becouse I associate the music with nostalgia about the game or that I associate it with Skyrim at all, it's becouse musically, it conveys a sense of a ''world out there''. How Soule managed to give the listener a sense of ''cold'' and ''nature'' in his pieces, is something truly remarkable and I don't know many other composers that can accomplish this. 

Being a composer myself, I wanted to try to make similair music to his beautiful work on the Elder Scrolls. I studied/ analyzed Oblivion's and Skyrim's soundtracks, and started to notice subtle patterns and trends in his songs. Using these composing-techniques, I started to make and later publish my own Elder Scrolls-esque music on my YouTube channel. 

I'm now at the point where I have more than 1 hour of Elder Scrolls-esque fantasy music made, and decided to put them all together in a high-quality music mod.
This mod not a mashup of generic sounding fantasy or orchestral music grabbed off YouTube, but a playlist of songs that compliment the already existing Skyrim score. So it will still have that ''Elder Scrolls'' feel. Atmospheric, ambient, subtle and nature-like, and not filled with loud busy melodies or distracting fast-paced melodies.

For all you fellow music nerds out there, no, this mod doesn't include the generic chord progressions that have been overused in pretty much all music, like 1-6-3-7 (i VI III VII) or 1-5-6-4 (I–V–vi–IV). So it will feel new, authentic and not recycled ^^

Installation:

Just drop the files in the Data folder of your Skyrim directory, you know how it goes!
There are 3 versions of this mod, a replacer of some of the original soundtracks and one that adds the new tracks to the game rather than replace them (recommended version).

Other highly recommended audio mods:

Audio Overhaul
Sounds of Skyrim - Civilization
Musical Lore
Unofficial High Definition Audio Project

The Northerner Diaries - Immersive Edition (music by Jeremy Soule)

Compatibility:

 Chapter II will work with any other mod. For other music mods, you might conflict. Let me know if you encounter any conflicting mods.

You can merge this mod with other music mods with this software: Mod Merging Tool.
