Ecco the Dolphin's music was never this bizarre

Have you ever been playing Ecco the Dolphin and thought to yourself, "This music is great, but I really wish it sounded as trippy as how the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey looked"? Well then have I got a gift for you!

Last year, I brought to your attention ECCOS, a modification of the Ecco the Dolphin soundtrack to be played as part of a wild art installation called "Center for Wave Change." Creator Andrew Norman Wilson took a gameplay video of the Sega Genesis classic and heavily modified the music in Final Cut Pro, changing the speed and adding echo effects. The result was a wild departure from the source material, something that Andrew describes as "furniture music" -- not meant to stand on its own but rather to serve as background noise that engages the mind.

Andrew decided to release the ECCOS soundtrack trough the Rhizome art organization's download program, which can only be accessed by Rhizome members. Lucky for us, he has provided Destructoid with the seven-track, 48-minute album to share with you all for free. You can download individual tracks from SoundCloud or you can snag the entire shebang straight from MediaFire. And in the gallery below, you'll find the album art and a diagram that illustrates Andrew's sound editing process.

Now turn off the lights, turn on a lava lamp, and allow your mind to wander as you ride the waves of experimental Sega Genesis music.
