about

What started out as a couple of "SOMA" inspired Drum & Bass mixes, turned into a an experimental concept album losely based around an earlier draft of the game.

I used samples from the game's music and sound directories, many packs from www.musicradar.com and finally my friend Dez from the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Lost Alpha team (for supplying me with very cool blowout sound effects and bass samples).

Each track has 2 different names. The first is the name me and a few other people gave each track for the story telling portion. The second I gave while creating them.

Enjoy!

P.S. track 11 has a surprise at the end.

released August 16, 2016

I would like to thank:

Dez (of lost alpha for many different samples)
www.musicradar.com (for all the musical samples).
Frictional Games (For making SOMA)
Mikka Tarmia (for creating SOMA's game soundtrack).
My family (for putting up with my grumpyness).
My cat (for continually trying to add his own influences into the music via keyboard assasinations).
Many people on google whom I downloaded images off to create the album art (im very sorry if you are pissed off and will remove the images if asked).

Track Name: 01 - Intro [New Beginnings, Again]
Voice: “Ohhh, uhhh....what...what’s happening? Hello? Is anyone there?”

Simon: “Uhh, hey! HEY! Can you hear me!?- *gasp*

Voice: ”I hear you. Uhh, Upsilon? What’s going on?”

Simon: “I-I have no idea...I just sort of woke up here”.

Voice: “...In the room, right now?”.

Simon: “Uhhh i-it’s like a seat, with a helmet?”

Voice: “Is that right...What’s your name?”

Simon: “I-I’m Simon Jarrett...”

Voice: “-and what do you- *ERROR* -AH! Sick of these damn relays...Where are you now?”

Simon: “Uhhh its uhhh..some place dealing with electrical power. Im not sure if it’s a plant or a transformer-"

”Voice: ”-Yeah, you’re probably in the thermal plant somewhere. You wanna’ go upstairs to the Comm-Centre. It’s the room with the domed ceiling”.

Simon: “Hey, l-look this place is not...there’s something SERIOUSLY wrong here..- *ERROR* -..Hello?”

Voice: “I’m sorry I didn’t catch that, we lost another relay. Listen, head for the COMM-CENTRE UPSTAIRS. I’ll wait here”.

Simon: "Hello!?...- *sigh* -Great, just wish if I knew if you were real or not...”.
Track Name: 02 - Welcome to Upsilon [W.A.U., That's Deep]
The sky is pitch black with smoke...the ocean is dark, incredibly dark...(x6)





Simon: "What was that? ...WOAH!"

Catherine: "What's going on!?"

Simon: "I think this place is about to collapse! What do I do!?"

Catherine: "Simon, come to Lambda!"

Simon: "Uh-H-How do I get there!?"

Catherine: "There are shuttle trains connecting all the sites! Find one and come here! I'LL WAIT FOR YOU!"

Simon: "Shit! Shit! SHIT! Where do I-!? What should I-!? OH FU-!"

.
Simon: “I-I think so...It’s doing SOMETHING atleast”.

Catherine: “Where is it?”

Simon: “Hold on, I’m trying to find it...”

Catherine: “PLEASE let it be safe...”

Simon: “I found it! It’s at a site named ”Tau””.

Catherine: “Oh, no! It’s on earth...it’s SO close to Phi, they almost made it...Damnit, it won’t make it for long in that state! A couple of decades at most!...that’s not much to build a future...”

Simon: “If we got to it, could...can we get on the ARK?”

Catherine: “I suppose but im not very flexible at the moment...-”

*ERROR*

Simon: “What is that!? What’s happening!? JESUS CHRIST! WHAT THE HELL!?”

*ERROR*





Catherine: "Huh? What the HELL happened here? What are all these emergancy-...WHAT did you DO!?"

Simon: "I messed up, ok!? Can ya' get us out of here!?"

Catherine: "YES, yes I just need to pump the water out and get a trajectory in place!"

Simon: "Hurry up!"

Catherine: "Just a second...Alright, taking off! Hold on to something!"





Simon: "Was that the ship!?"

Catherine: "Looks like your sabotage worked better than expected...BRACE FOR IMPACT! Hold on, the blast just pushed us off the plateau!"

Simon: "What does that mean!?"

Catherine: "If I don't hit Delta, we're dead!"



Computer Voice: "Delta rescue team notified. Please remain seated".
Track Name: 04 - Delta-Skelta [Berlin Bound]
Simon: "Hey, could you maybe help? I need to get to Theta-"

Goya-bot: "-Don't stand there, you know better than that! Gimme' some room, will ya'?"





Goya-bot: "Don't worry about it. I got this".



Simon: "I-..I feel awful..."

Catherine: "The robots only APPEAR intelligent, they're much more like dogs than humans".

Simon: "I wouldn't hit a dog!"

Catherine: "Sorry...poor choice of words..."

Simon: "I don't wanna' hurt anything..."

Catherine: "Well, we NEED a tool chip or, we're stuck here (x5)"



Brad-bot: "It's...everywhere. All that water...we're drowning...(x4)"
Track Name: 05 - Dreams in Theta [The Warden Watches All]
Akers:

Ya' need ta' trust me...
The warden wants us ta' feel alive...
It knows whats good for us...
There's still satisfaction...there's joy
I can show ya'....I was sent ta' help...
Surrender your pain...No need ta' suffer this place
I'll, help you sleep...FOREVER, in peace...





You're looking for them, right?
I saved them, put them ta' sleep! They, are safe...
These sinking halls...this, DEAD world is not worth saving
ONLY life iz precious
The warden will watch over us as we sleep...keep us safe
We failed to save this earth and ourselves...
Salvation can only come from the divine warden...
Inside the dream, we find paradise...
An unparalelled existence...
Go in peace, with dignity into...oblivion...
Close your eyes...accept it...
It's ok, i'll find a purpose for ya'...eventually
I won't let you go ta' waste...MOST of you iz edible...
Track Name: 06 - Hello Again, Mr. Akers [Surrender to the Slumber]
Akers:

I feel bad for ya'....your unable ta' sleep like tha' others...
Why do you reject my offer!?
Can't ya' see!?
It's perfect! (x2)
(SLEEP TILL DEATH!)



How can you say no!?
It's all you could ask!
Everything you ever wanted! (x4)
Dream!
Let it Swollow ya'! (x4)
(THERE'S NUTHIN' LEFT!)
(NO REASON TA' STAY BEHIND!)
(Surrdender to the slumber...) (x2)





Simon: "Tell me...Why do you think the W.A.U. brought me here?"

Catherine: "The W.A.U. had a range of assignments but they all sprung from one single idea: Preserve humanity. When the comet hit the earth killing everything, leaving only a fraction of humanity left alive, the W.A.U. started to...compensate".

Simon: "It's restoring humanity...?"

Catherine: "I think so but I don't think we share is definition of human...
or LIFE for that matter..."
Track Name: 07 - Provide a New Body [Delusional Machinery]
"I can't take this...I CAN'T TAKE THIS, I CAN'T TAKE THIS! CATHERINE, THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT! THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT!"

Heh...heh-heh, Ha! HAHA! HAHAHA! AHHHH AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Track Name: 08 - The Descent [Do Robots Dream...?]
Catherine: "Are we done here?"

Simon: "Yeah..."

Catherine: "Activate the climber please..."

Simon: "Sure thing...

Catherine: "Strap in, it'll get bumpy..."

*ERROR*

Simon: "...It's dumb luck, right? I woke up in the right body...Your basically flipped a coin and if I had called the wrong side i'd be rotting away at omicron...I mean there's no way to know, right? You didn't hit the "Make-sure-Simon-wakes-up-in-the-right-body" switch, did you? Not that you would know...He would still CLAIM to be the right Simon...CHRIST! This is awefull! We did an awfull-fucking-thing...and you woulnd't mind, why would you!? How could you know its not me!? The me that I am!? The same that i've always been!?...Please say something...I don't wanna' think...Please..."

Catherine: "...I don't know what to say. I don't wanna' upset you..."

Simon: "...Say anything..."

Catherine: "...When I was little, I used to climb the stairs all the way to the top of the building...I can still feel how I did it, ya' know, tuck my arm
so I could push the heavy steel door open...Well, the first time that I
dared go up there, I stepped out onto the roof and watched the smog rise and fall over Taipai...I got ALL the way up to the corner edge and, ya' know...I felt the warm wind in my hair and the sun was setting and the streets below were shadowed by the tall buildings...The people pushing through the crowd flowed like paint artist's brush...street food vendors filled the air with aroma of all my favourite foods...For a brief moment, I felt connected to the world in a way I'd never had before...It was the most profound feeling of comfort and sense of belonging, I could EVER hope for...I really never felt the same way again but...I went up to the roof many times after...I'm not religious but I can see why people would be. The Privalidge of being makes a strong case, atleast every once in a while.

Simon: "Do you still feel that sense of "Awe"? Even like this?"

Catherine: "Things are different but we're still here".

Simon: "What's the point of going on? Everyones gone...All the people still left are digital copies, trapped in computers, at the bottom of the sea...we'll never be able to rebuild or reclaim what we were".

Catherine: "Are you really so unhappy being what you are? Or is this about the man who went for a scan a hundred years ago?"

Simon: "Both, I guess? When I was back in Toronto, even the worst case, the darkest futures I could predict they atleast included my previous life somehow. I feel so uprooted...Theres nothing here that I recognize, nothing that makes me feel like I belong...Even if we made it to the ARK, would it be any different? I'd still be alone...no friends...no family..."

Catherine: "You could make new friends. I'm sure everyone would like to know "The Time Traveler". If not, you still have-"

*ERROR*

Simon: "...Catherine?...Cath?...Hello, Catherine? What happened!?"

Catherine: "-me. I know it's not much but-WHY have we stoped moving?"

Simon: "The power blacked out for a moment, think it could be the atmospheric pressure..."

Catherine: "Don't worry, it SHOULD hold".

Simon: "...Comforting..."

Catherine: "It WILL HOLD".

*ERROR*

Simon: "Does...Does time freeze when your not powered?"

Catherine: "Time feels, omitted more than anyting".

Simon: "What's the difference?"

Catherine: "I don't feel like im being held back or hindered and I don't have the oppotunity to reflect the time im missing...it's simply, missing..."

Simon: "Sounds like sleeping without the dreaming".

Catherine: "Yes but generally you anticipate when you are about to sleep and theres a natural continuation since, we tend to wake up where we went to sleep. MY experience is more like...an ever changing moment that never really seems to find closure..."

Simon: "Sounds kind of like a movie being edited live".

Catherine: "I suppose so. I guess it sounds exciting but it really keeps activated to the point of exhaustion".

Simon: "Huh...That's rough..."

Catherine: "Could be worse...I could be a time traveler stuck in a body made from black
goo".

Simon: "Hmph...that'd be the worst...Have we figured out what happens when we die yet? Is that even possible...? If there's some kind of afterlife...do you think my place is taken? The real me died like, a hundred years ago...is there still room for me? And what about the Simon I killed at Omicron...? What'dya' think, Catherine? Is there a heaven full of redundant copies of the same people? Is there someone out there who'd call me an imposter...? ...Look's like we're closing in on the ocean floor..."

Catherine: "Good, not sure the climber can take it much longer. OK! So, this is the Omega sector. It's about an acre of the abyssal plan used by Pathos-II. I expect you'll have to do some walking before we reach Tau".

Simon: "You haven't been here before?"

Catherine: "Not in a way that would help us".

Simon: "Right, the other you has been here. We're following in your old footsteps, Cath".

Catherine: "When I had footsteps..."

Simon: "You could still be down here somewhere...technically".

Catherine: "Don't remind me, freaks me out..."

*ERROR*

Catherine: "Alright, lets head for Tau and find that ARK".
Track Name: 09 - Site Alpha [Running Blind]
Ross:
"YOU DID IT! You did it...I will make preperations!"
"We're so close now...HURRY! (x2)"
"This is where it all went wrong, Simon"
"Site....Alpha..."

Simon:
"Who are you!?"
"What do you want with me!?"

Ross:
"This is where we planted the seed to the cancer that's eating Pathos-II..."

Simon:
"I don't care, Im just passing through..."

Ross:
"It wasn't ment to be like this...No one told us this could happen!"

Simon:
"Leave me alone!"

Ross:
"PLEASE SIMON!"
"HUMANITY WILL SUFFER-!"
(FOR AN ETERNITY! X2)





Simon:
"Just tell me what you want..."

Ross:
"I need you to stop the W.A.U..."

Simon:
"What? How...?"

Ross:
"The enslaved protein sloshing around your suit, is the noose from
which the W.A.U. will hang itself...!"

Simon:
"What are you talking about...?"

Ross:
"As soon as I came-to at Omicron, I tried to tell them to make the
toxin that would make the W.A.U. wither-..."
"-They all died...but you, you...YOU took the gel from the cabnet
and made yourself into a venomess snake!"

Simon:
"You're saying this toxin inside me can kill the W.A.U.?...All together?"

Ross:
"YOU are the snake, Simon...Now strike at the HEART!"

*ERROR*

Simon:
"WHAT THE HELL IS THAT!?"

Ross:
"The heart...it controls all the structure gel on Pathos-II. All you need
to do is poison the imprint and the heart will unwillingly spread it
across Pathos-II, killing it!...Feed it, Simon. Push your arm into the
heart!...Come on! DO IT! PLEASE SIMON! Don't let the earth be consumed by W.A.U.'s nightmares!"

Simon:
"Aaah! AHHHHHH!! AHRRRRHHHHHHHHH!"

Ross:
"Yes! YES! It's working...IT'S WORKING!"





Simon:
"PLEASE! I DID WHAT YOU WANTED!"

Ross:
"You did good, Simon but you can't leave. The ONLY way to make sure the W.A.U. STAYS dead, is to destroy the only one who's immune to the new pattern...Don't worry, I'll make it quick..."

Simon:
"DON'T!..."

Ross:
"You HAVE to do this, Simon! This is bigger than both of us-!..."

*ERROR*

Ross:
"AAAAAGGGGHHHH!"

Simon:
"IM SORRY, W.A.U.! I DIDN'T MEAN TO INFECT YOU! PLEASE, LET ME GO!"
