The brilliant soundtrack of TAGAP is composed, arranged and produced by Petja Heiskanen. For this album release, the songs have been remastered and sequenced to create solid, stand-alone listening experience.
Poor movie can have a decent soundtrack, but a movie can't be any good if the soundtrack sucks. It's the unwritten law that applies to all entertainment, including games; If you think of your favorite game, you'll most likely remember its sound. The difficult task of defining TAGAP's sound fell on shoulders of Petja Heiskanen, a friend and a musician.
It all began in early 2004 when I gave Petja a bunch of songs, mainly score tracks, that had inspired me in terms of the game's visuals. It didn't take long for Petja to then create several tracks of his own. I kinda expected the first drafts to be direct test replicas, but instead they were something unique from the start. That was the sound of TAGAP. The principal themes soon took shape; Boss tune of Pedro, sinister theme of Dr. Glowenko and of course the title theme song.
The music slowly transformed from MIDI to the real deal, yet the wibe remained essentially the same, influencing every aspect of TAGAP and the other way around. Being a soundtrack buff I know a thing or two about good scores; All I can do is to thank Mr. Heiskanen for this absolutely perfect soundtrack that ultimately made TAGAP a whole.
