    Nothing wrong with an email briefly explaining your intentions (i.e. "I am not a serial killer") to SCUMMVM, a member of the band, an old co-worker or w/e. Worst case scenario they ignore you or reveal that the target victim subject doesn't want to be publically reachable.

    In the latter case, Roguey is an expert in such matters

    Wow! I love Dreamweb. I really like the pixel artwork in the game and the music is very good.

    wow. when someone from gaming actually replies in an online forum, that's rare

    Matt, if you see this: thanks for one of the greatest soundtracks in gaming
    how about you release it on Bandcamp so that everyone who likes your music and wants to support you has the ability to do so?
    personally, i didn't even know there was a CD with remastered music, but it'd be great if that was made available as well (along with the actual game soundtrack, which is ace) along with any other music you've made since then, perhaps.

    do you have a professional profile anywhere?

    anyways, thanks for the listening enjoyment you've given so many people. all the best

    LOL how the fuck did I even miss this thread? I consider the Dreamweb OST to be the definite cyberpunk soundtrack, it absolutely nailed the sound and the atmosphere. I'm pretty sure Alexander Brandon was also heavily influenced by it.


    I made some slight edits/remixes for the Dreamweb LP, I guess this is a fitting place to post them.








    As a bonus here is the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer with Dreamweb's "What went wrong" track (Matt actually commented on it):

    Hello everyone!

    Alberto here. New to the forum but long-time lurker myself. I thought I'd give you what I consider an amazing piece of news (well, if you are a fan of Dreamweb like I am!)

    Matt and I discussed the release of a remastered version of the soundtrack .. and finally: it's here!

    http://dreamweb-remastered.bandcamp.com
    (Streaming and Digital Download)

    You can get it on: dreamweb-remastered.bandcamp.com

    It took me two full weeks to re-extract the audio, work on it and also to the graphics. But it was worth it, I still consider Matt's work on Dreamweb to be among the most inspirational in sci-fi, dystopian, cyberpunk (call it what you want).

    The remastered edition is completely free, you don't have to pay for it and no one should make you pay for it - but obviously any donation is welcome so we can buy proper coffee!

    I am in love with the Digipak layout so much that I am thinking to release a limited run of them, maybe.. who knows!

    For the moment, here it is!
    I hope you like it as much as I did while working on it. It's been a real honor for me. Enjoy!

    It's a vivid picture but the fact that I know that feeling very well (and music goes well with it) is what matters, I believe.
    I couldn't be happier! Overdose responsibly!

    Alberto RS Can you share anything about the process of remastering the audio? Do you know anything about the instruments that were used?

    Hi Crane! Glad you liked it!

    I was the mastering engineer in the sessions and also did the restoration, so yes I can share a lot (some stuff could be terribly geeky and could kill someone out of boredom!). I was thinking to talk about it in my next podcast, I hold a weekly podcast live from my recording studio here in Berlin, in which I talk about stuff that happens in the studio and random music production topics.

    If you have specific questions, feel free to ask them here and I'll answer them. About the instruments used by Matt to compose and play the soundtrack, I was thinking to interview Matt in his spare time and record the interview, but he's a really busy man and I don't want to interfere too much with his private life and work. But I am definitely up for an interview! Heck, I am having goosebumps already :)
