For those of you who don't know, I did the music for Alternate Realityin it's first incarnation.  As in the original AR, we want music to play a serious role in the new AR. To that end, Monolith has provided me with some incredible equipment. AR will be released to work in a number of audio formats.  The prime one being a DVD version with most of the music being digital.  All of the original songs in AR will re-appear.  Along with this, a number of new songs.  Because I generally do 75% of the lyrics after the song is written, I like to make CD's of the tunes so I can play them in the car or wherever I might be.  I find it a great way to come up with ideas for lyrics. People have asked if there are new versions of AR songs.  The answer is yes.  Soon there will be a Monolith web page for Alternate Reality and it WILL have new game music on it from time to time. AR fans, will probably recognize some of the following song titles.

The CURRENT AR MUSIC CD (in house at Monolith)*7-15-97*
Bit over 78mins worth...
0.  Overture to AR84     (left off 7/15 CD to gain 6mins)Basically the orchestra (if you believe), is playing a medley of old AR tunes.  Wishing Well, Thoreandan, Guild Song, and Death being some of them.
1.  Dark     A fan of the game suggested I write more dark and depressing songs.
With lyrics like,  
             "There are monsters - that will hurt you...
              And the dark things - won't desert you...
              You may never see the sun - Again."
Well heck, I got depressed just writing it. *grin*
