BioShock soundtrack CD features Moby, Oscar the Punk and 'eerie aesthetic'


2K Games has revealed some of the tracks you can expect to find on the BioShock soundtrack CD that accompanies the Limited Edition of the game. The disc, also attainable with pre-orders at Game Crazy, will feature remixed period songs from a time when dinosaurs ruled the earth -- the '40s and '50s. The fellows functioning as the music remixsaurs remixers are Oscar the Punk and Moby, both tasked with updating the music "with the game's atmosphere in mind." So, something more aquatic and sinister then, perhaps with an eerie aesthetic?

"While these classic songs from the 40's and 50's evoke a happier time, they take on an eerie aesthetic in BioShock's decaying art deco-designed underwater city of Rapture," says Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K Games. According to him, the three remixed tracks (Beyond the Sea, God Bless the Child and Wild Little Sisters) add a new spin to "indelible classics." Well, he certainly makes them sound fit for consumption despite being indelible. That means you can't eat them, right?

(Oh, and if you've been trapped beneath an ocean of rocks for the last few weeks, you should note that BioShock is officially out August 21st in America and August 24th in Europe.)
