Jon Sonnenberg is the composer of Travelogue. Some of those songs were written for The City Beneath and other DROD games.

Still, nice find. It's cool to see one of his songs in the wild.

Jon has been making and performing music since at least the 90s with some different bands of his. I first heard a song called Autonomy from his earlier band, Pivot Clowj. It was on a compilation CD with other synthpop artists like Information Society. I thought, "well, this is a long shot, but I'll try asking this guy about putting his music in DROD." And it worked out, which made me really happy.

It also helped form my advocacy for reaching out to creative people and talking to them directly to get permission or pay them to use their work. So many great things have happened to me by doing this. We should be thinking of the world as a collection of people we can team up with--not just inert media to download and mash together.

Note that many of Jon's songs were on his albums before they became DROD songs, and they often have lyrics. The Autonomy song is also the title music to TSS. The original song has Jon's vocals--very beautiful if you can find it!

I feel lucky and honored to have collaborated with this prolific Man of Music over the years.

-Erik

FYI, you can purchase all of Travelogue's DROD CD's on bandcamp. They have full OST sountracks for TCB and Gunthro and a partial OST for TSS (the OST for TSS you can buy on the caravel website and steam only has Emmett Plant's contributions). Definitely worth checking out and buying if you love the music as much as I do:

Erik's post really piqued my curiosity so I did a little digging and discovered this:

https://www.discogs.com/Various-CatScan-10/release/780958
http://www.angelfire.com/vt/pivotclowj/disco.html

Found it! Pivot Clowj has a few of their CD's for sale on bandcamp and they've posted full versions of their songs that you can listen to online. Jon Sonnenburg confirms that this is the original Autonomy released on the compilation album (Catscan 1.0) that Erik was talking about. He's right, pretty cool to hear the vocals!

https://pivotclowj.bandcamp.com/track/autonomy-original-mix

Here are all the vocal versions from DROD songs along with the OST versions I was able to find. Let me know if you come across more and I'll add them to this list:

Autonomy (from TCB):

Here's also a large youtube playlist I discovered that has live performances (quality is pretty spotty, though). I noticed some DROD hits on there and might go through it later to update this list:
