Minecraft is one of the most popular video games in recent history, and Volume Alpha is the first official soundtrack to the game. Aphex Twin also once said I stole his style. Minimalism was and is definitely key when it comes to the soundtrack. Although Minecraft in and of itself is a very frantic and wild experience, I wanted to give the game a contrast by essentially giving the player a pentatonic chill pill. Some fans actually like to listen to this album while they go to sleep, which is just as well another interesting use for it. There is a lot that I have to thank Minecraft for, and there will be much more that I can thank it for. Moog actually contacted me on it, telling me how much they liked it. This is kind of what I built the entire soundtrack around on. MOM is a definite inspiration for me, and this album directly.

By his own admission, he was imitating Aphex Twin by creating experimental albums that "made no sense. Rosenfeld was given the greenlight to make any music and sounds that struck his fancy, but in the context of a voxel-based game about structures and landscapes. So he ditched the Aphex Twin sounds, opting instead for mutating ambient electronic music that calls to mind Brian Eno and Vangelis, as well as the looping experimental sounds of Steve Reich.
