The music system in Kenshi has been designed in such a way, that as you play through the game the engine randomly selects from a handful of different musical elements to create new compositional excerpts. It is this ambient approach and "non-player interactivity" of the music that reinforces Kenshi's indifferent tone. Obviously for a traditional Soundtrack release we can not recreate the randomization of this music system (yet). However, we can get close and musically sculpt each track with wide brushstrokes to capture the same feeling.

In addition to the gameplay music, the Kenshi Original Soundtrack features the Main Title and a few other traditional recordings that can be heard throughout the game. Put on a good set of headphones and let the music transport you to the windy dunes, overgrown swamps, and unexplored wilderness of Kenshi. Thank you and I hope you enjoy!
