Daedric Music Box is a debut orchestrated score by Kool Khajiit, recorded for the Songs of Cinder series.

Background and release

Daedric Music Box was announced on November 12, 2014, as a soundtrack to Songs of Cinder, a Morrowind-based fan spin-off by Kool Khajiit, who is also the producer of the album. The story's main theme and the album's opening track, "Cinder Sings", was released the same day on Kool Khajiit's SoundCloud profile, along with the cover. The album is said to be composed of nearly 15 tracks total, each inspired by a chapter of the fanfiction or the event within the story's plot.

The tracks "Waking Up" and "Light The Twin Lamps" were released on November 13, 2014. "Rootspire", a fourth track of the album, was released on November 15, 2014. "Chasing Shadows" was released on November 18, 2014. "Oblivion's Game", the sixth track, was released on November 26, 2014. Tracks titled "Ash King" and "Velar Veleth" were released on November 28, 2014, followed by "4E 202" on November 29. "Touching The Eclipse", "Dro'm-Athra Never Slept" and "Dragons?" filled in the tracklist on December 6, 2014. The final tracks - "Heart Stone", "Foyada Padhome" and "The Story Ends" were released on December 7, 2014.

The Deluxe Edition, announced days before the album's release, has three tracks featured so far: the remix of the main theme, released as a single, as well as "Dagoth's Resurrection" and "When Ancestors Cry", released on December 14, 2014.

A remix of "Cinder Sings", the main theme, was published shortly after the initial release of Daedric Music Box, on December 9, 2014.

Production was handled by Kool Khajiit under his hip-hop alias Miracle Play and features the genre's signature crisp snares and double-time hi-hats over the original theme's choirs.
