Hidden Orchestra's Joe Acheson of Brighton, England has published Creaks arrangement album "Bonus, Live & Remixes." Revisiting themes from Amanita Design's platformer, the music compilation goes live on Bandcamp today.

The album bundles "Guitarist Painting" and other previously-unreleased tracks from the score with two live band covers, and seven arrangements from various artists. The genres are described as spanning "dancefloor-ready experimental techno, delicately plucked ambient/modern-classical pieces, [and] blasts of bass clarinet free jazz..."

Among the participating artists, Poppy Ackroyd reworks "Tangle," Tommy Perman remixes "Trunk," Matouš Godík (ZKA4T) arranges "Armoured," Lukas Kunce (chiefko) revisits "Guitarist Painting," and Ben Lukas Boysen reimagines "Extending." "Bonus, Live & Remixes" concludes with an arrangement of "Palace End" by Machinarium composer Floex (Tomáš Dvořák).

Amanita previously published the two-disc Creaks soundtrack, available for shipping on 180-gram audiophile vinyl. The composer performs piano, bass, analog synth, flute and percussion on the game soundtrack, with Rebecca Knight on cello, Tim Lane and Jamie Graham on drums, Ackroyd on violin, and Floex on clarinet.

Creaks is available for Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Apple Arcade. The digital soundtrack can be purchased on Bandcamp and Steam.
