    Default The freelance Neocron 2 composer!

    Hi guys,

    I'm back to NC etc etc.

    But more importantly ...

    I work for an outsourced IT support company, and we often have to call out to external companies that deal with things like ADSL lines, external hosting, mail filtering and so forth.

    So this morning i ended up having to call a UK ISP called the Excell Group (see http://www.excellgroup.com/solutions/isp/index.cfm). Before i could speak to one of the engineers to get an ADSL line test, I was put on hold.

    Lo and behold, what did i hear as the hold music but one of the NC faction HQ tracks! To be more specific, it was the one with the dodgy sounding jazz guitar!

    Is the NC composer trying to make a few more pennies?

    It's not the one that sounds like you would be in a Elevator? <NC Folder>\sound\mp3\clubmusic1\style1.track3.mp3 by any chance?

    If it is, this is where KK got it from Link to an old THN thread

    Man, that sucks. I liked that song and always thought it was cool that such a nice little piece came from Neocron. There that goes!

    Just found this a few minutes ago, and remembered this thread.

    You can hear the Faction HQ music (I think it's Protopharm, not sure) being played in the background of this video, which was shown on the Country Fried Home Videos TV series.

    I've always thought that Neocron had some of the best background music though, to be honest.

    If anyone has seen the new film Surrogates, with Bruce Willis, you might have recognised the music from one of the apartment scenes. None other than the pro-city faction HQ music!
