"Ascendancy and “The Tome Rebellion” - two games made by the Logic Factory, have some of my favorite music of all time. I’ve been searching the web for the music but have come up empty so far. I can’t remember if it was redbook audio or not, but I think it was… Anyone here happen to have it? Or has anyone seen it available anywhere?
Anyone know who the composer was? Maybe he has a website where he offers his music?
WOW. I just looked his name up on Mobygames and I can see why I liked the music so much. Sheesh his work is like a list of my “favorite game music” of all-time list.

I’m pretty sure I have the Ascendancy soundtrack ripped to MP3 at home. Home is in another state, however.
For what it’s worth, the excellent main theme from Ascendancy owes a pretty massive debt to the LFO track ‘Simon from Sydney’, from the album ‘Frequencies’. (Although the sample on Amazon does not include the section of the track where it’s most obvious.)
My GF’s old boyfriend Neno wrote all that music. I remember Amanda introducing and learning he was a musician got me talking about my MT-32, and that got him talking about all the MT-32 programmign he had to do at Origin. You old school guys might remember the “NIM” technology that Origin debuted in Wing Commander. NIM stands for Neno’s Interactive Music. :-)

I’ll tell him about this thread. He’ll probably get a kick out of it.
"All the cats in Riverville are turning into beautiful, sexy Teenage Catgirls! These luscious kitties pounce on the streets and back alleys to find, mate, and claw every man they can get their paws on. Teenage Catgirls In Heat is a movie with a bad attitude, nine naughty lives, and a litter of hot kittens!
Cunningly crafted by filmmaker Scott Perry, Teenage Catgirls In Heat is a movie that will rub against your leg and make you cough up hairballs full of Tromerotic delight!"
Thread hijack warning - speaking of a game’s soundtrack I’d like to have that starts with “A”, I really dug the old soundtrack for the arcade game Assault (Namco), and can’t find it online anywhere at the usual places. I’m sure it’s probably not as good as I remember, but still… Anyone have any clues? I’m usually really good about finding music and other obscure things online but this escapes me…
