The depth and breadth of detail to appreciate in ALIEN: Isolation boggles the mind. Being a music lover, I am especially taken with the use of diegetic sound.
What follows is a work-in-progress: I have assembled music tracks used in ALIEN: Isolation in a playlist on Soundcloud, for our enjoyment.
I started this after finding two bits of information online:
Radio Songs, a Reddit thread started by Visual_Paradox, and
Alien Isolation Radio, a YouTube post by Seegson 180286. (This also contains broadcasts heard on the radios of Sevastopol Station.)
Usually this music is found on radios scattered about the station.
As time goes by, I hope to add to the playlist, as well as to create a “map” of where the tracks can be found aboard Sevastopol.
I chose a cassette tape as the avatar for the playlist since those were very much a part of my teenage life, back in the days when LPs were king, and if you wanted mobile music, you recorded them onto cassettes for the car or your WalkMan.
You will find music by the following artists. The biographical material is from their respective web pages.
Sparse American primitive instrumentals drawn from the roots music of Mississippi and Appalachia. Influenced by the likes of Skip James, John Fahey, Roscoe Holcomb and John Hurt.
Born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal, Sara studied music from a young age. At 13 she wrote her first song and has been composing ever since.
Blending the melancholy of afterhours piano with distorted bass, analogue electronica and downtempo rhythm, Dead Sea Navigators mix a dark cocktail of theatrical indie/lounge for the entertainment of late night drifters.
Douglas Pennant is a composer/sound designer based in the UK. He spends a lot of his time creating sound and music for video games and short films.
The music is eclectic, which gives so much more realism to the game than some New Age pablum that might have been.
So, without further ado, here is “Songs for Sevastopol”, a playlist ostensibly put together by a Seegson employee in preparation for his stint on the station. I like to think this employee got out before things went haywire…
P.S. Yes, TDK still exists in 2137!
