I think Steve Kirk deserves more love in this forum. All I could find was this very interesting bit of interview.
I am completely under the charm of TWP’s soundtrack. By far one of the best I ever heard, movie soundtracks included. The moment I entered the vista for the first time, the sound of the guitar really blew me away. The music in the city hall is also very well crafted, so eerie, this kind of drop sound, my god that will stay with me for a while. I have been on his website and there are some interesting samples, especially the work he did for Voodoo Vince, which sounds like a mixture of the soundtracks of TWP and Monkey Island.
I am a big fan of jazz fusion and especially those edited in the seventies by the ECM record label and I think this soundtrack would have been right at its place in the ECM catalogue. Some artists from this label are the closest I could compare to his work for the game, albeit more experimental in nature. The lenghty and ethereal guitar parts remind me a lot of the work of Terje Rypdal, a Norwegian jazz guitarist. See this link for an example. Musicians like Eberhard Weber and John Abercrombie (listen to his Timeless and tell me if that would not fit well with an extra scene in TWP!) are also not so far. If I had only one question to ask Steve Kirk it would be: is he aware of these artists and did he find any inspiration in their work?
Go ahead and post some music you think feels like Steve’s work for TWP, or what you think of it, or other works of his that you could find somewhere, or even a love letter to him. Steve, if you read me, you are awesome and I am definitely buying the LP of TWP’s soundtrack.
