Genshin Impact Music: Enchanting Melodies

by Genshin Fans 13 May 2024

In Version 4.6, there is a new Flagship Event called Iridescent Arataki Rockin' for Life Tour de Force of Awesomeness, which started on May 6, 2024, 10:00 (Server Time) and will end on May 27, 2024, 03:59 (Server Time). In the event, the Traveler and Paimon received an invitation sent by one Arataki Itto, inviting you to take part in an event that would be held on Watatsumi Island.

The event is generally divided into three parts, other than the Quest: Xtreme Carnival Ensemble, Trillion Trinket Trawl, and A Meeting of Melodies.

In the Xtreme Carnival Ensemble, you can participate in a music performance, during which different notes will appear on the screen and you should strike when the notes hit the bottom line, the more accurate you strike, the more score you get.

In the Trillion Trinket Trawl, you should collect items based on the list by Dvorak, which includes defeating enemies, photoing animals, and collecting items.

In A Meeting of Melodies, you need to listen to the hummed tunes and fill in the missing notes to match the melody of the original hummed tunes, every tune is chosen from Genshin Impact.

It is quite interesting that in the Quest, the NPCs mentioned that they are searching for a dog who was said to be helping the animals injured in the War between the Watatsumi Army and Tenryou Commission against the Vision Hunt Decree. The general of the Watatsumi Army, Gorou, also has canine features, whose Elemental Skills and Elemental Bursts have dog patterns on them, which are even made into merch by HoYoverse:gorou dog plush

The gameplay mode of this Flagship Event is very similar to a rhythm game, which is also one of Genshin's favorite small game modes. It is not that difficult for us to witness how serious miHoYo is about their soundtrack: they have their own in-house music studio, HOYO-MIX.

HOYO-MIX is the in-house music studio of HoYoverse, responsible for the production of their original game music. The soundtrack in all of HoYoverse's games is made by HOYO-MIX, including Honkai Impact 3rd, Genshin Impact, Tears of Themis, and Honkai: Star Rail.

In Genshin Impact, music accounts for a very significant part. For example, there are instruments that can be played at the player's own will, including the Arataki's Great and Glorious Drum, Festive Drum, Floral Zither, Nightwind Horn, Vintage Lyre, and Windsong Lyre, each can produce different sounds. Due to the existence of such gadgets, there is a group of players who would go into others' worlds and play songs for them.

Besides musical gadgets, there is another system relating to music in Genshin Impact: the Radiant Spincrystals. They are items that can be used to unlock Soundtracks to be used as Realm Music in the Serenitea Pot, which can be obtained in the open world or from the Teapot Traveling Salesman. By Version 4.6, there are 130 Radiant Spincrystals available in total.

What's more, there were other events that included a gameplay mode similar to rhythm games, such as Invitation of Windblume in Version 1.4, Tuned to the World's Sounds in Version 2.2, Almighty Arataki Great and Glorious Drumalong Festival in Version 2.7, Windblume's Breath in Version 3.5, A Parade of Providence in Version 3.6, Mega Meka Melee in Version 4.0, and Iridescent Arataki Rockin' for Life Tour de Force of Awesomeness in Version 4.6.

In the new area released in Version 4.6, Nostoi Region and Sea of Bygone Eras, there are many puzzles related to music as well.

Thanks to HOYO-MIX, all of the soundtracks above are original soundtrack developed by HoYoverse individually, and many of the soundtracks enjoy high quality and reputation among the players and even musicians. Here are the Top Five soundtrack in Genshin Impact:

TOP 5 Liyue

This soundtrack describes a feeling of wandering in the city of Liyue, from which the Chinese people will feel highly related and touched because Liyue is inspired by China. From the melody, there are hustles in the town, tranquils in the wild, rejoicing in family union, and so many other feelings, depending on the listener himself. For many, it provides a feeling of hometown and relieves their homesickness.

TOP 4 Termination of Desires

This soundtrack shows up in the Character Demo of Raiden Shogun, which contains many Inazuma features. It also shows the stateliness and power of the Almighty Raiden Shogun. When enjoying this soundtrack, especially with the video of Raiden Shogun, you will be impressed by the character, as well as the Japanese cultural connotation.

TOP 3 Rage Beneath the Mountains

You will hear this soundtrack when fighting the weekly BOSS Azhdaha. The melody not only illustrates the powerfulness and grandeur of Azhdaha but also implies the elegance of Zhongli when he was fighting Azhdaha. The lyrics of this soundtrack are also powerful, using ancient Chinese.

TOP 2 Devastation and Redemption

This is the Character Demo soundtrack in the Story Quest of Shenhe. The most impressive feature of the soundtrack is the opera elements in the song, which is performed by Yang Yang, a skillful Chinese opera singer. The rises and falls in the melody, as well as the harmonious cooperation of Chinese classical instruments such as Erhu and Guzheng have taken this Story Quest to the next level.

TOP 1 Rex Incognito

Most of the soundtracks here are Liyue soundtracks, maybe because MiHoverse is a Chinese company that knows better the Chinese culture than any other culture. Rex Incognito shows up in the Character Demo of Zhongli who is also called Rex Lapis by his people.
If you want to hear more soundtracks from Genshin Impact, you can go for the official CDs to enjoy, you can purchase CD containing the Soundtrack in either Mondstadt or Liyue.

Besides online soundtracks, HoYoverse also holds concerts in reality, which is really popular among the players. For example, Genshin Concert Melodies of An Endless Journey was held on 2023. 

The concert went so popular that, many of the fans did not make it to the spot because they cannot get a ticket. To those who had already got the ticket, some were really exciting and was discussing what to wear in

If you missed the concerts, but really want to enjoy them, you can watch the official recording online.
Also, you can support the concerts by purchasing some of their merch, each of the merch is well-designed and high-quality, such as the Concert Gift Box: Symphony Into A Dream.

For smaller ones, you can choose the Character CD-Style Keychain Charms, which is also fascinating.

We players can tell if a game developer is doing as good as he can to make good games, and we can tell from the soundtrack that, HoYoverse is making enormous efforts to make our experience in Genshin Impact better. Personally, I will put up my earphones every time I launch the game, because it really gives me an unforgettably wonderful experience to travel in Teyvat with such magnificent music.
