OCRA-0039 - Deus Ex: Sonic Augmentation

  • Deus Ex
  • Eidos Montreal
  • OC ReMix

  • How do you know the original Deus Ex is a special game? Even today, people joke that when they're reminded of it, they immediately have to go and reinstall it. That's how infectious it is.

    A critical part of the game's indelible impression is the music, which is why I was excited when Kyle Augustson-Stallock, then Deus Ex: Human Revolution's community manager, floated the idea of us creating a ReMix album back in October 2010. When I asked the OCR staff and community to come up with an arrangement EP, I shouldn't have been

    surprised that they did such a great job capturing and expanding on the feel of the DX series in their own unique, interpretive ways. After all, sonic augmentation is what we do.

    Even if you've heard other music from all of the contributors here, all ten of them presented ideas and sounds different than what you're used to hearing from them. Get ready for a different side of these talented composers and arrangers, as well as a different side to Deus Ex. With a focus on the original game alongside representation of both sequels,

    there's a little something for every DX fan.

    Special thanks to Kyle Augustson-Stallock for originally commissioning the album and establishing the framework for us to work with. Kyle is great to hang with in person, and it's always an honor to collaborate with legit OC ReMix fans in the games industry who know we're passionate about what we do. A big thanks to Eidos Montréal's André Vu, Adam

    Badke, and Valérie Bourdeau for seeing Sonic Augmentation through to completion and working hard to get this music into your hands.

    Special thanks also to Alexander Brandon (two-time contributor here, how awesome is that!) and Michiel van den Bos for enjoying the album, as well as Deus Ex: Human Revolution audio director Steve*Szczepkowski for his kind words on the project.

    Much love to the artists for their seemingly limitless creativity, Andrew "OA" Luers for some really slick album art that I did my best to augment, my wife Paige for her patience and encouragement, and David "djpretzel" Lloyd for starting OC ReMix, a place where video game music is celebrated as a true form of artistic expression.

    Last, but not least, thank you to you the fans who listen to OC ReMix and go out of their way to spread the word.

    We like you the best of all.

    - Larry Oji (Liontamer)

Dangit. Can't get it without a facebook account.

Is facebook such a universal thing now that no-one even considered that some people might not have accounts?
