Alexander Brandon (Siren):
Musicography and Tracks Collection

Alex Brandon photo

This page presents music written by US electronic musician Alexander Brandon (aka Siren, aka Sandman, aka Chromatic Dragon) during his tracking demoscene carrier, from 1994 to 1999.

Music was written mostly in Scream Tracker (S3M format) and Impulse Tracker (IT format), so to play it you need ModPlug Player, XMPlay or Winamp; for the best playback quality I recommend XMPlay.

It's just small unofficial fanpage. I love this music and want to make page containing it all, all I could get from various sources, such as, and others.

Currently Alex works on commercial game music. This page doesn't contain these commercial releases. You can try to find most of them on various sites that collect game sound-tracks and ripped music, such as and others. Alex also released several audio CDs with electronic music. You can find them on, for example.

At the bottom of this page you can find the list of several Alex's interviews and misc informational links.
