Millions of people around the world listen to music while reading. Now there is the perfect sonic environment for the genre of book they are engrossed in.
TV and film composer Steve Buick produces long, evolving musical soundscapes inspired by books to enhance the reader's experience, creating the final seal to the outside world. He calls them 'evokescapes'.
The music is not synchronised; it is simply background musical atmosphere for you to play on your tablet, smartphone, computer or mp3 player while you read.
'Music for Reading Thrillers', 'Music for Reading Science Fiction' and 'Music for Reading Horror' are available to buy as mp3 albums, with short audio previews below so you can hear excerpts of the tracks. Each album is £2.99 and contains three long (25-40 minute) mp3s.
If you would like to buy an album, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request and we'll send you a Paypal invoice and a link to download the album of your choice after payment is received. You don't need a Paypal account. Any currency conversion will be shown on the Paypal payment page.
Steve also composes evokescapes for best-selling authors' books. The first releases are below, available from Amazon and iTunes.

I trusted Steve to create something that reflected what he read. I'm delighted with the outcome because to my ear he clearly caught the feel of the book. So much so, we'll be doing another album for book two, Night Without Stars.
A nice pendant to the publication of this book is an accompanying soundtrack by some folks named Evokescape. You can listen to samples at their site. I found the music agreeably interstellar and eerie, stirring and brooding, but in a kind of universal way. In other words, I could conceive of it being a soundtrack to a book by Vernor Vinge or Greg Bear or Alistair Reynolds just as easily as to Hamilton's.
