Brandon Strader - Familiar Waves

from by Patient Corgi



"I never got to play Ecco the Dolphin as a kid, as I never really got to choose what games I got when I was quite young. I saw a friend playing it at his house decades ago, and have always really liked the idea of a dolphin protagonist. The music for the series is outstanding and there were so many great songs to choose from, but also so many complex and difficult pieces...I think I picked a friendly piece and turned it into an enjoyable but minimalistic new age style jam with a wall of sound. It felt like I was in unfamiliar territory while making the song, but the title is more a reference to one's home. A big thanks to director Ian for the opportunity to work on this compilation!"
— Brandon Strader
