'''Quake''' is a video game by id Software released on June 22, 1996, which features music
composed by [[ Trent Reznor]]. Most versions of the game included 10 audio tracks from the game as standard CD-Audio files, so the game disc could be played in a CD player with the first track reserved for game data (which cannot be read by a CD player), and 10 additional tracks of music. Some versions of the game include shortened edits of the music tracks.
Other members of [[ Nine Inch Nails]] also helped to create the music.[https://www.quaddicted.com/interviews/americanmcgee] Reznor was also responsible for the game's sound effects. Reznor became involved as the result of mutual fandom between himself and developers at id Software. He was a big fan of ''Doom'' and had sent tickets and backstage passes to developers, expressing an interest in working on ''Quake''.[https://books.google.com/books?id=pw0EAAAAMBAJ&printsec=frontcover#v=onepage&q&f=false] It is notable that this [[Soundtracks|soundtrack]] contains [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ambient_music ambient music], which Reznor went on to explore further with the ''[[Ghosts]]'' series and various scores created with [[Atticus Ross]]. It is also reminiscent of the dark ambient music of [[Coil]].
