It contains the main themes as well as random versions of “City View Music” mixing the different indexes of the game. A Frenchy & Chill Mix of Jazz/Electro/Folk and Classical flavors.
“Planet” contains the “City View” themes only in their “Classical” version. It’s performed by a string quartet (Sinfonia Pop Orchestra) with some xylophone; It’s delicate, calm and bucolic.
“Profit” contains the “City View” themes in a cold and technological electro-ambient version, mixing evolving pads and drum machine, but somehow chill and Jazzy as always.
The album People is in a more Folk/Soul style with Fretless MicroBass, melodica, rhodes, acoustic guitar, and drums, on more groovy rhythms.
The music in The Architect: Paris, being procedural and dynamic, should be listened to “in game” for a better experience.
But, a good way to enjoy it is to launch a random playlist in your favorite streaming service:
