Wasteland

An album inspired by and written as a soundtrack to the 1980s computer game Wasteland (the original game has no sound except for a few PC speaker beeps). Set in a post-apocalyptic future (that would later beget the hugely successful Fallout series of games), the game still has a strong atmosphere despite its age. The album is a blend of electronic ambience, ethnic instruments and guitar textures and has been described as “Blade Runner-era Vangelis with some assistance from Ennio Morricone”.

The game has now been re-released incorporating this soundtrack, remastered with additional tracks. It is available on Steam and GOG

The original album is available to stream or download from soundcloud
