Beyond Skyrim: BRUMA is an unofficial expansion for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In it, players will explore beyond the borders of Skyrim. They will travel to Bruma, the northernmost county in Cyrodiil, where they can dive into Ayleid Ruins and much more. The soundtrack for this unofficial expansion was composed by Daniel Ran, who commented on what went into the composition of the Beyond Skyrim: BRUMA OST:
“Jeremy Soule has been an influence of mine starting with The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. I’ve also been inspired by the works of Japanese composers including Nobuo Uematsu, Yasunori Shiono and Masashi Hamauzu. For Beyond Skyrim: Bruma, I feel I was able to examine just why Soule’s music was so influential and merged both the Western and Far Eastern influences into a sound that reflects me. It’s my most important work to date, and I’m excited to continue composing for Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodiil.”
