Miracle of Sound (Video Game Fan Music)

Updated on August 5, 2013

Geeky Rock Music and Theme Songs To Your Favourite RPGs and FPS!

Miracle of Sound is a guy named Gavin Dunne  who creates fantastic, geeky, awesome songs about various video games, from Bioshock to Portal 2. Everything from rock ballads, to haunting slow songs, to metal, to blues. He started about a year ago, and is currently releasing a new song every other week or more!

Not only is the music generally awesome (some of his older songs I don't like so much), but he writes his own lyrics which are brilliant, often funny and full of game references and in-jokes. This guy has played all the games he sings about. The music videos mostly use footage and screen captures from the games, so used to be pretty amateur, but are getting quite impressive.

New music videos are often exclusive to The Escapist, with a few appearing on YouTube in full or as previews. Downloaded music is generally available to buy either a few days to a couple of weeks after each new song is released.

You can buy his songs from iTunes (1 euro) or the Miracle of Sound Bandcamp website for anything from $1 up (you choose) using credit card or Paypal, or download from Amazon (89-99c, US only).

Watch his music videos and the lyrics on The Escapist and YouTube,  and follow him on Facebook.

Where To Find and Follow Miracle of Sound

Commander Shepard - For Mass Effect & Mass Effect 2, Feb, 2011

Commander Shephard is the (customisable) main character of the Mass Effect games.Mass Effect is a science fiction RPG from BioWare, for Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3.

This song is one of the most popular of Miracle of Sound's songs. There's even a fanpage asking for this song to be an Easter Egg in Mass Effect 3 .

Mass Effect - Xbox 360
Mass Effect - Xbox 360

As Commander Shepard of the SS Normandy, you will take your elite recon squad across a galaxy in turmoil, in a desperate race to stop the return of an enemy without mercy. To stop this enemy, you must act without remorse, without hesitation, and outside the limits of the law. Your only imperative is to preserve the safety of civilized life in the galaxy - at any cost. You must become the tip of the spear of humanity, for you alone know the full extent of what is at stake if you should fail.

 

Normandy - 07 September 2011, Mass Effect 2

This song is about the Normandy SR-2, a space frigate in Mass Effect 2, which was based on the SSV Normandy, the experimental stealth frigate from Mass Effect.

Mass Effect 2 - Playstation 3
Mass Effect 2 - Playstation 3

Mass Effect 2 is the sequel to BioWare's hit space-based role-playing game (RPG), Mass Effect. The first release in the Mass Effect franchise available for play on the PlayStation 3 platform, Mass Effect 2 is a single player third-person oriented adventure that allows players to experience the adventures of the fully customizable series hero Commander Shepard, as you take on a whole new adventure and a new cast of supporting characters.

 

Age of the Dragon - 18th March, 2011. DragonAge 2

This song made me play DragonAge 2. It made me.

DragonAge 2 is an ultra-shiny (I actually had to turn the graphics down) sequel to the fantasy RPG DragonAge, It's a lot of fun. 'Age of the Dragon' is an inspiring rock ballad that's one of my favourites from Miracle of Sound.

Similar to Mass Effect (also by BioWare), you can customise the appearance, gender and personality of the main character, Hawke - who eventually saves the day. Sort of.

Dragon Age 2 - Playstation 3
Dragon Age 2 - Playstation 3

Embark on an all-new adventure spread across a ten-year span of years with an all-new hero in the multiple award-winning Dragon Age saga. In Dragon Age II you are Hawke, said to have been one of the few to survive the destruction of your homeland. Forced to fight for survival, you gathered the deadliest of allies, amassed fame and fortune and sealed your place in history, eventually becoming in effect a legend in your own time. But legends are all in the telling.

 

Wheatley's Song - Portal 2

Portal was a fantastic game that made gaming history (and a really good cake). Portal 2, the amazing sequel, pretty much took over the internet the day it came out. A very clever, very funny, scifi puzzlesolving gaming that features adorable turrets and crazed robots.

This song is an egocentric and fast paced rant from Wheatley. Wheatley is an irritatingly manic little companion/enemy to the player character, Chell. He is taunted by GLaDOS (the main AI) and told he was designed as a moron. Among other references, 'fostered balloon' in the chorus refers to his attempts to insult you by calling you fat and adopted.

Portal 2 - Playstation 3
Portal 2 - Playstation 3

In Portal 2 players awake in the Aperture Science Labs as Chell, the heroine of the original game. A great expanse of time has passed since the conclusion of the first game and the gameworld has fallen into visible disrepair, but placed in suspended animation, Chell has survived intact and is revived. With the help of a robotic entity the concluding events of the past game are revealed and you escape your initial confinement, but in doing so GLaDOS, the the AI computer antagonist from the previous game is also reawakened. Just as fickle as ever, GLaDOS' motives are unknown. Insisting on testing you, it may assist you but may also be planning something more sinister.

 

This bouncy, 'can't get it out of your head' song is about Minecraft, a cross between living in lego land and suviving zombies. It's made by one guy, is still in beta, and costs fifteen euros.

It's also very addictive...
