This project was started in 2008 and was finished early in 2009 while being headed by James Shain, the head of Cold Fiction Music. This album is full of songs that are inspired by the games of Nicklas ‘Nifflas’ Nygren. The 3 games of Nifflas’ that inspired these songs are Within a Deep Forest, Knytt and Knytt Stories. Nifflas sees his games as works of art and not just games and so are the songs that make up Crystal Greenlands. Nifflas is honored to have an album that is a collection of songs that are inspired by his games. The music ranges from ambient to ambient breaks to jungle and beyond. There is something for everyone on Crystal Greenlands: Nifflas Inspired Music.
Starting out as songs created by playing around with effects back in 2007, this album quickly became a full fledged album that was taken seriously by Agathan and completed in 2008. It features a wide range of styles, from minimal techno to ambient breaks to just plain ambient. Even though Subconsciousness, and Thoughts Thereof was finished in 2008 it never got a proper release on a label and we are happy to give it that proper release it deserves. The total runtime for this album is not the longest but a respectable 38 minutes and 7 seconds.
