On this page I will periodically publish music. This will usually be soundtracks from games, but maybe occaisionally consist of more random stuff. You are free to download the music and listen to it as much as you like, all I would ask is that you do not use it in your own games.
I write all my music using Mad Tracker. I find it very easy to use and would recommend it to anybody who would like to get into music composition.
The .XM files on this page won’t play through Windows Media Player, but there are many (free) media players that will do. I personally use Deliplayer 2 for music playback as it seems to support every format you can think of.
