Deus Ex Wiki

Soundtrack CD from Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition

The music in Deus Ex was composed by Alexander Brandon, Michiel van den Bos, and Dan Gardopee and is a mixture of jazz, techno, and classical influenced ambient tracks, each of which provides a great enhancement to the mysterious and gritty atmosphere of the game.

The game also features a dynamic music system. Whenever a player enters combat, the music will shift from slow paced to fast paced and adrenaline pumping. The music will also change whenever a player enters a conversation with another person and after level transitions. The implementation of this transitional style of music creates yet another layer to this already immensely deep game.

The first release of Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition came with a second separate CD containing a high quality recording of the soundtrack. Note that it does not include every piece of music in the game, the tracks being made up from sections of the dynamic loops in each map or area. The Main Title theme is also the orchestral re-recorded version featured in Deus Ex: The Conspiracy.

with my bowing out of Straylight productions
and the release of this project you may note
similarities between this piece and the style
of necros (andrew sega)
if so, there is no shame as this is probably
going to be my last MOD released to the public,
 and what better way to pay homage to one of my
favorites and colleague in arms
there is no doubt he and others have had a
profound impact on my music and as my friend
Josh Rodman says "its one of your strengths,
don't shy away from it."

peace... 2000
