The Portal 2 Soundtrack, also known as Songs to Test By, contains most of the music pieces used in Portal 2; it was composed by Mike Morasky; with the exception of the song Want You Gone, composed by Jonathan Coulton.

Songs to Test By[]

On May 25, 2011, the Portal 2 Team released for free the first volume of the complete Soundtrack, titled Portal 2 Soundtrack: Songs to Test By, on the official Portal 2 blog.[1] On July 1, the second volume of the Soundtrack was released,[2] while the third and last volume released later that year on September 30.[3]

On September 24, 2014, to celebrate the release of Steam's Music Player, Valve re-released the Soundtrack as free DLC available to those who own the base game.[4]

On the Portal 2 blog, the Soundtrack is marketed as an "aural stimulus package" developed by Aperture Science;[1] featuring fully mixed MP3 tracks (where Mike Morasky is credited as "Aperture Science Psychoacoustics Laboratory") alongside ringtone versions for Android and iPhone. The soundtrack is largely electronic and often upbeat, contrasting with the quiet ambient music used in the Portal soundtrack.
