Bit.Trip Wiki

BIT.TRIP is a series well-known for its amazing music, and has over 80 tracks in the series as a whole. Almost every level has its own music associated with it, or sometimes multiple tracks. Most music in-game continually evolves as you play each level and/or MODE up.

Most tracks in the BIT.TRIP series are composed by Matthew Harwood. However the 9th entry in the series saw a new main composer Stemage, who had previously made some music for the previous entry.

In addition, each of the original 6 BIT.TRIP games had guest composers, each with 1 or 2 songs that would play during the main menu and credits.

Soundtrack[]

Almost every track found in the games has been released on multiple music platforms. They can also be purchased directly from the Choice Provisions Bandcamp.
