Game music composer Allister Brimble joins composer team at Shockwave-Sound.com

We are happy to announce that we've signed up a new composer to our little "stock music team" here at Shockwave-Sound.com and that is none other than video game music composer extraordinaire, Allister Brimble.

Probably beaten only by American video game composer Tommy Tallarico, Allister has composed the music for a larger number of published video games than anybody else. He started out writing music in the early 1990's for some of the most famous and most loved Amiga games from Team17 Software, including Superfrog, Full Contact, Alien Breed and many more. He has since gone on to compose for hundreds of video games, so he knows what it takes to make music that sounds great in a game setting!

Shockwave-Sound.com owner/manager Bjorn Lynne met up with Allister at a recent industry event in Peterborough UK where they were able to discuss music and life over some food and drink, and a few weeks later, we are happy to have the first batch of 4 tracks composed by Allister exclusively for the Shockwave-Sound.com music catalogue. Here they are:

We welcome Allister to our team and look forward to having more of his music up for licensing over the coming months and years.

  1. Wow this is great news and I'm pleased to hear this, will get to listen to these tracks later. Just goes to show what these events will bring, it was probably one of the best Amiga events and so glad to have known that musical idols were there next to me too knowing this now. It's exciting time for Shockwave and I look forward to hearing more soon.
