Straylight Productions was a team of video game music composers and producers, founded in 1994, which has since disbanded with lead musician Alexander Brandon taking on a new post as sound director at Midway Games.


The founding musicians were Andrew Sega and Dan Gardopée. Straylight composed soundtracks for Origin Systems' Crusader series. They also worked with Epic Games, for whom music was produced for Unreal, Unreal Tournament, Tyrian, and Jazz Jackrabbit 2 (the original Jazz Jackrabbit music was by Epic's own Robert A. Allen). Alexander Brandon was assisted by Michiel van den Bos with some of the soundtracks, although Michiel was not a part of Straylight.

Andrew Sega had all but left the company before the soundtrack for Unreal was started, but as an "honorary member" of Straylight, a cleaned-up version of his "Isotoxin" piece, minus the introduction, was included in the soundtrack. Likewise, his "Mechanism Eight" piece was included in the Unreal Tournament soundtrack.
