Eidos Reveals Free Deus Ex: Sonic Augmentation Remix

Eidos Reveals Free Deus Ex: Sonic Augmentation Remix

image

Original Deus Ex composer Alexander Brandon has teamed up with OC Remix to bring the soundtrack back to life with Deus Ex: Sonic Augmentation.

The original Deus Ex was a brilliant game with an absolutely fantastic soundtrack composed by Alexander Brandon, Daniel Gardopée and Michiel van den Bos. And while it's held up very well over the years, now (well, soon) you can listen to a different take on it thanks to Deus Ex: Sonic Augmentation, a collaboration between Brandon and OC Remix that Eidos is very slowly giving away.

The album features "cybernetically-enhanced arrangements" of eight tracks from the original Deus Ex soundtrack, beginning with "The Search For Ambrosia" by Zircon and Jillian Aversa, a remix of the game's "NYC Streets" track. It's good stuff, unique and "new," yet distinctly Deus Ex and with some very recognizable hooks from the original.

Unfortunately, that's all you get for now. All the tracks on Deus Ex: Sonic Augmentation will be available at no charge, but Eidos is releasing just two tracks per week on its Facebook page, meaning that it won't be in the wild in its entirety for another month. You can stream it or download it, and those of you who aren't down with the whole Facebook thing won't have to "like" it first, but you will have to wait for it.

Eidos didn't say when the next track will be available, but I'd guess that Thursday is a likely candidate. In the meantime, you can get started with "The Search For Ambrosia" at the Deus Ex Facebook page.

No way! That is so freakin' cool. I know what I am going to download next from OC-remix.

Good to see OC ReMix getting some promotion out of this. That site is pure gold.

Very nice. I hope they'll also do UNATCO HQ, Paris Cathedral and, of course, the main theme.

WARNING: OLD STUPID JOKE INCOMING!

Even though I never asked for this, I want it. I want it right now.

I asked for them, but I didn't ask for Facebook. Oh well, hopefully the entire album will be released as torrent on OCRemix later on.

Personally, I hope all these bad puns don't cause to much CHAOS. God knows how much anger ROSE from the last pun match I was in...

Well you better knuckle down, a-kid-ya not.

I can't wait to hear that remix of The Synapse, and Enemy Within.

OC Remix make the best albums. And I'm glad to see Brandon is still kicking around, I've been wondering what he's been up to lately.

It's a direct download link. Just go to the page, click and be happy.

Fuck, I might not have asked for this, but I could not hit "save link as" fast enough...

Looking forward to the next tracks!

It's not even like these puns are a BIG deal. Really, we aren't even going for the CREAM of the crop, only the moldy CHEESE left over.

Okay, I'm done here.

Sadly isn't not that easy...It seems to require a Facebook account. I'll be waiting too, it seems.

Still, looks (sounds) promising. I was a HUGE fan of the original soundtrack.

Ah yes, you are correct, apologies for that. I stay logged into Facebook by default so the magic just sort of happen when I click on things.

On the upside, I think it's very reasonable to assume that this thing will widely available once it's fully released. Assuming that's how it works out, feel free to post download links in this thread - it'll be old and buried by then but it might still come in handy for people looking for the remix. (I'll do it myself if I remember.)

I honestly never noticed the soundtrack while I was playing Deus Ex, but OCR is always a good sign[1]. I'll give this a listen when it's available in some medium other than Facebook.

[1] Except for that Dynamite Headdy album, but I choose to ignore that.

Wouldn't it be horrifying if they remixed every track with dubstep?

Anyways i don't think i'll be getting this because well, i don't think you can improve on perfection.

If I click on it, I get a "log in on Facebook" page. I don't have a Facebook account so I hope someone uploaded it somewhere else too.

EDIT: It's on Youtube now.

Hell yes this is awesome and just in time, I just reinstalled Deus Ex too :D

This is awesome just beat Deus Ex for the first time yesterday:) So i'm looking forward to hearing all the remixes

Wow. Your username was just waiting for a post like this, I bet. :P

Alexander Brandon is phenomenal, one of my top 10 favorite VGM composers, and he has very interesting solo work as well.

That said, his work on UT'99 and Deus Ex is legendary.

I love OCR, and I especially love when composers make mixes themselves, or collaborate on mixes. Looking forward to the rest of the tracks!

Bravo, sir.

Guys, let's watch the puns before they reach critical mass; the mods will get their Tails in a Spin.

I was waiting for you to say that! And what I'm asking for is the original Deus Ex, but with Human Revolution's graphics and engine. I can get the old one on Steam, right?

I didn't ask for that, and I feel better not knowing.

A Bit More OT: OC Remix is always good and the Deus Ex music was not bad. I'll definitely check this out once it stops being distributed through Facebook.

Um how do I span this out enough so I don't get any warning or anything....<.< that should do
