Choicest VGM - VGM #415 - Deus Ex - NYC Streets 2

Deus Ex title screen

Track composed by Alexander Brandon

This cool track plays when you return to Hell's Kitchen as Jock informs you that your brother Paul Denton is in need of help (at least I believe that's when it's played, I haven't played Deus Ex in a long time!). The track has a greater sense of urgency than the original and as a result, has an epic feel to it.

I've extracted my favourite sections of the original UMX file which includes the normal ambient section which ends at 1:30 and is followed by the very chilled conversation music which takes us to the end of the track.

It's interesting to note in the UMX notes that Alexander Brandon has a bit to say about his work and the work of another video game composer, Andrew Sega:

"Mission Eight"

by Alexander Brandon
Ion Storm
with my bowing out of
Straylight productions
and the release of this
project you may note
similarities between
this piece and the style
of necros (andrew sega)

if so, there is no shame
as this is probably going
to be my last MOD
released to the public
and what better way
to pay homage to one of
my personal favorites and
colleague in arms

there is no doubt he and
others have had a profoun
d impact on my music and
as my friend Josh Rodman
says.. "its one of your
strengths.. don't shy
away from it".

peace... 2000
