If you’ve never heard of it, Marathon is a classic first-person-shooter game for the Macintosh platform, released in 1994. The Marathon series is what really put Bungie Software “on the map”, and they were seen as one of the premiere developers on the Mac platform from the mid to late 90′s.
Anyway, I was a huge fan of their games and I’ve been involved in a few different projects over the years relating to the game (total conversions, maps, etc.) . One of those things is a remix I did of the song “Splash” from the soundtrack for Marathon. The original song is a MIDI music file by Alexander Seropian, one of the founders of Bungie and a key contributor to the Marathon games.
Without further ado, you can hear my remix (and check out a nice slideshow of Marathon-related artwork & screenshots) here:
Hope you enjoy. I’ll be sure to have other game music remixes in the future (I already have a System Shock 2 remix which I am planning to post soon).
