Hello!

Recently, Ive found some unused music from The Smiler, and was wondering if anyone has an extended version?

It can be found here : )

The one he was on about is a lot longer, we all know that this was released but the full one (the area music) probably won't be released :(
I may be a tad bit late to this thread, but Ive seen it floating around

Unfortunately, the Alton Towers audio isn't available on Spotify/music streaming services :(

Some of the older music is available to buy from the composers here:

Other than that, the IMAScore CD which they sold on-park or on IMAScore's website last season is pretty good - although it's a shame they haven't put it on streaming services yet :)

Hey, I'm attempting to create an Alton Towers Media collection, and I am aware that TowersTimes used to have a Media section with some rare stuff. I've tried to get the files via the Wayback Machine and Internet Archive, but they weren't saved. Could anyone who happens to still have the files please share them? For reference these are the files I need:
1. Doom & Sons Speech
2. Doom & Son's Effects
Thanks :)

This is an old soundtrack composed by IMAscore and it was one of the first revisions of the smiler. It's likely the full version of this soundtrack no longer exists and the only evidence to it existing is from 1 video Matmi (developer of The Smiler The Game) posted, and a small section of what sounds like the same one which plays for about a second in the games splash screen. Any other ones like this on youtube including your linked video is recorded directly from the first video I said.

IMAscore obviously wasn't willing to just hand it to me when I emailed them last year but if anyone still has the soundtrack it will be IMAscore, it just depends on how extensive their backups and systems are. I would have also said Matmi might have them but they moved into a new office in June and its likely they didn't bring old resources from a 2013 forgotten game with them to the new studio.

Even if they did, there is no way to contact them as they do not reply if you email them about this. I don't think the extended version will ever see the light of day, and if someone already has it somehow PLEASE NOTIFY ME, I was searching for this during lockdown in 2020 but never found it.

edit:
by the way, here is the original clip

I have those. I'm pretty sure they were backed up somewhere hence why I have them.

Katanga Canyon theme

I have been having a difficult time finding any information on this track. I know there a excerpts from it on the ATMOS71 CD (The Adventure Begins, Over The Moon) but I wanted to go back further and see if I could track down a better copy of the full version. I know it's by Mark Russell and from his Cool Music account (http://coolmusicltd.com/composers/mark-russell/)I know that back in the 90s he did scores for a handful of BBC Radio film series (Batman, Superman, Spiderman and Independence Day). I noticed a subtle link to at least one these series (Superman) on the Universal Productions page for ATMOS71 (https://www.universalproductionmusic.co ... ion-heroes). On the final song of the first section (The Final Victory) it references Superman in the songs description. I have 100% placed a few of the songs from ATMOS71 in both Superman BBC Radio series that Mark was involved with. The song I'm looking for appears to be absent. A user on here mentions it was released in 1988. Could this be a mistake? I must say it is rather illusive for a song everyone seems to have heard but nobody knows where (maybe not now, but in the late 90's, early 2000s when I first heard it).

I managed to get the files from the preserved old version of the site which was closed years ago (old.towerstimes.co.uk), they're low quality but definitely interesting.

Do you ever think what we need is someone classicly trained and someone who knows show tunes? Graham Smart basically.

His music is certainly a cut above the rest! Sad that not much of it is played in the parks any more.

He really is. I actually paid to listen to his portfolio on bandcamp and I rarely part with my money...But that music, it just has so much character. I mean, you can tell it's been played on synthesizers but just imagine what he could do with today's synthesizers or even a real orchestra.

I really long for dark rides the way they used to make them.
