What do you remember about the sound track from the original Deus Ex?
Primarily composed by Alexander Brandon (with the support of Dan Gardopée and Michiel van den Bos), this iconic audio ensemble was influenced by the styles of techno, jazz and classical - its gritty ambient tunes and driving beats gaining wide critical acclaim after the release of Deus Ex in 2000. As many of you will remember, the game capitalized on a dynamic music system to match the tunes to the player's actions, shifting from slow to fast-paced as the situation required. A remastered version featuring added instruments and audio production was also shipped with early copies of the GOTY edition.
So, why the refresher course now, 13 years later?
It’s with incredible excitement we’d like to announce the release of “Deus Ex: Sonic Augmentation”. In collaboration with OC Remix, the world’s #1 online video game music remix organization, original composer Alexander Brandon and the OC Remix team have completely remixed and reimagined the slammin’ sounds of the original Deus Ex soundtrack to bring them to you like you’ve never heard before.
