[[caption-width-right:250:[[OneOfUs Gavin Dunne, video game-themed musician]]]]

Gavin Dunne (born 1980) is an Irish indie musician who produces mostly [[OneOfUs video game themed music]], under the name "Miracle of Sound".

Miracle of Sound began as a hobby during a lull in Dunne's music career. After playing ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' he began thinking of song lyrics related to Gordon Freeman, the protagonist. He wrote it all down, recorded it and released it on the net. After seeing the mild popularity of the song, Dunne wrote and released more.

This side project quickly became popular after his [[Franchise/MassEffect Commander Shepard]] song was released and went viral. Soon afterwards, his show was picked up by Website/TheEscapist for a biweekly (later monthly) music video, with a monthly behind-the-scenes article called "Encore". He left The Escapist on good terms in 2015.

His Patreon can be found [[https://www.patreon.com/miracleofsound here]]. He also has an official website, which can be found [[http://miracleofsound.net/ here]], though it has not been updated since 2015.
As of December 2017, Gavin has released eleven albums, detailed below:


[[folder:Level # (2011 - Present)]]
Released yearly since 2011, these albums are the bulk of Gavin's output, being {{Compilation Rerelease}}s of all the singles he's released throughout the respective year. The vast majority of the songs are inspired by video games, ranging from the ultra-popular like ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' to the more obscure or CultClassic like ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment''.

Less frequently, a song will have been inspired by a movie, such as ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', or a TV show, with ''Series/GameOfThrones'' being the most frequently highlighted. Occasionally a song will be completely original, with no ties to any previously existing media.

The tracks are remastered from their original single release.[[/folder]]

[[folder:Press X To Rock (2011)]]
A selection of tracks from Gavin's first album, ''Level 1'', ''Press X To Rock'' consists of his biggest hits from 2011. The only Miracle of Sound album to get a physical release, it was released exclusively on The Escapist's online store, and is now out of print.

Windows identifies the genre as "Awesome".[[/folder]]

[[folder:Vistas (2014)]]
And now for SomethingCompletelyDifferent: ''Vistas'' is a collection of instrumental, relaxing ambient tracks, most of which are not based on any particular media. Includes an instrumental version of ''The Call'', which was inspired by ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline''.

Another track, ''Hitoshio'', was rereleased on Gavin's [=YouTube=] channel in 2017 as a tribute to ''VideoGame/{{Okami}}'', in celebration of the announcement of the eighth-gen remastered version of said game.[[/folder]]

[[folder:Metal Up (2015)]]
Taking a small break from his usual output, ''Metal Up'' consists entirely of original metal songs. When released, this was the best-selling Miracle of Sound album, as well as the best-selling metal album on iTunes.[[/folder]]

[[folder:Collaborations and Unsorted Songs]]
Despite all the albums, a handful of the singles have never found their way onto any of them:

!!Tropes associated with Gavin 'Miracle of Sound' Dunne include:
* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: Uses this in spades, such as in "Road Rage".
--> "Guns and gas and gods!"
--> "I will redden the road, release the rage!"
** "London Town" is another prominent example.
--> "Slaves in seas of soot we drown,
--> come on down, to London Town,
--> the cogs they creak, and the pistons pound,
--> come on down, to London Town".
** And another one in "Fires Fade":
--> "Cold kings clutch crumbling crowns"
** One more in "Ditto":
--> "Courtship of chemical and chrome"
* AlliterativeTitle: [[VideoGame/DarkSouls2 "Fires Far"]], [[VideoGame/DarkSouls3 "Fires Fade" and "Forever Flame"]] are about the same game series and start with the same letter. Subverted with [[VideoGame/DarkSouls "You Died"]], which is OddNameOut due to EarlyInstallmentWeirdness.
* AffectionateParody :"Shooter Guy" is one to the entire FirstPersonShooter genre and the people who play it.
* ArcWords: He does this for songs about games in the same series (if not about the same game):
** For his Assassin's Creed songs he has "Justice runs in crimson rivers"
** For his Bioshock songs he has "And I dream of the (blank)".
** For his main series Fallout songs, he uses "Sterile Soil/Will Harden/Wasted World/My Garden"
** For his 3 ''[[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV GTA V]]'' songs, he has "I get in my car and drive"
* AuthorAppeal: Loves to layer his vocals, experiment with non-mainstream genres and tends to default to or infuse things with metal. Also Skyrim. More specifically, for "Life in Bullet Time", he took cues from Music/FaithNoMore, to the point of him admitting that he basically ripped them off. In an appreciative way.
* AutoTune: Averted, in that the artist has never used it and has gone on multiple rants saying that it is one of the biggest problems with today's music industry.
* BalladOfX: Did one for [[VideoGame/GearsOfWar Clayton Carmine]].
* BerserkButton:
** Do ''not'' accuse him of using Auto-Tune.
** On Social Media, it's been making claims that every country's politics and social issues are [[WeAllLiveInAmerica exactly like America's]].
* BilingualBonus:
** In "The Day The World Died", there's a brief verse in slightly broken Russian, saying: День, когда умер мир; which translates to: "The Day The World Died".
** Similarly, "Silver and Steel" has the lines with the [[TitleDrop song title]] sung both in English and Polish, the original language of the Witcher novels. According to his blog, he found out later that the pronunciation is completely wrong.
** "Sirona," and "Gráinne Mhaol, Queen Of Pirates" from ''Metal Up'' have verses in Irish.
** The ''Skyrim'' song "Legends of the Frost" has a verse in the dragon language from the game.
* {{Blog}}: He occasionally produces vlogs, often talking about what he's working on next, or doing things like [[Heartwarming/MiracleOfSound thanking everybody who got him to where he is now]].
* CallToAdventure: "The Call" is about this, specifically about the people of Tamriel to rise up and answer the threats of Molag Bal's invasion and the civil war for the Empire's throne.
* CallBack: Gavin really likes this trope. Also crosses over with ArcWords above:
** "Take it Back", a song made for ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'', has a bridge that includes the first line from "Commander Shepard", his first ''Franchise/MassEffect'' song, and a line similar to the chorus from "Normandy" , his second.
** "Blood Of The Creed" ends with the verse "Musket guns and silver slivers/Justice runs in crimson rivers/Words of ancient truth we follow/Bleed these veins into tomorrow". The exact same verse turns up in "His Father's Son". The first part ("Justice Runs In Crimson Rivers..") turns up yet again in "Beneath The Black Flag," as well as an instrumental nod to "His Father's Son." "My Revolution" contains the verse "La justice est une rivière rouge", French for "Justice is a red river." Following that is the verse "Crimson are the rivers/Bleed our grief into the sea" from London Town. Hallowed Land has "The Nile runs red tonight".
** Also shows up in Ballad of Clay Carmine and The Grind ("We won't stop because we're brothers in blood now/We'll meet again at the end of the line")
** "Hengsha" shares part of its melody with "The New Black Gold".
** "Joker's Song" references "Mind of the Bat" ("I have studied the mind of this bat").
** "Dream of the Sky" has this call back to "Little Sister" towards the end: "And I dream of the sky/Broken clouds drifting by/And I dream of the sky/My utopian lie".
*** "Dream of Goodbye" has a similar call back at the end: "And I dream of goodbye/Sinking sea falling sky/And I dream of goodbye/No more tears well's run dry".
** "The Call" has a clear instrumental callback to "Nord Mead", and according to Gavin, it also has a hint of "Legends of the Frost" in the chorus and "Sovngarde Song" in the harp and verses.
*** Similarly, "Winter Still" reprises some of "Sovngarde Song" in instrumental form.
*** The 2016 version of "Sovngarde Song" features an instrumental callback to "Legends of the Frost" at the end.
** All of his [[Videogame/GrandTheftAutoV GTA V]] songs ("Drive", "Rampage", and "Hard Cash") contain the line "Get in my car and drive", or some variant thereof, which was part of the chorus of "Drive". "Hard Cash" also ends with the same lyrics as "Drive" ("Gonna drive my blues away/just another sunny day").
** His ''Videogame/DarkSoulsII'' "Fires Far" ends with a melodic call-back to "You Died", his first Dark Souls song. Used again for the ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'' song.
** Part of the chorus of "Shadow Of The Ash" is a lyrical call back to "Call Of Home" his previous ''Literature/LordOfTheRings'' related song: "Through rubble, rock and stone/The ashes are my home/The silver sting of hatred/It creeps into my bones".
** "All As One" has a couple of musical call backs to "Age of the Dragon" and actually uses a slightly modified version of its chorus towards the end.
** "Lady of Worlds" has several lyrical callbacks to Gavin's earlier Witcher 3 song "Wake the White Wolf", such as the words "hatred's sails" to describe the Wild Hunt, and the line "Wake the wolf with a distant roar" appearing in one of Geralt's parts.
** "I am the Night", released to celebrate the release of ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'', calls back to almost all of his previous Batman-related songs. One set of lines and a short melody change calls back to "Mind of the Bat", while the general feel calls back to "Rise" (which isn't even related to the Arkham series but the Dark Knight trilogy!).
** "London Town", as well as having the usual callback to the line "Justice runs in crimson rivers" has several contrasts to "My Revolution." The line "Revolution holds us bound" in the chorus is the opposite of "My revolution sets me free" from the other song's chorus. As well, the lines "Cry Revolution, Broken Dreams" and "Cruel Revolution, Smoke and Steam" are sung in the same way as My Revolution's chorus.
** "Friends to Foes" has the line "I was there by your side" from "Reclaimer", sung in a darker, more hushed and reserved tone, to give it a more remorseful feel instead of the more angry, mournful tone of the line in "Reclaimer".
** "Some Things Never Change" has a lot of motifs carried over from "Beauty Bleak", such as its somber tone and focus on pianos, as well as using the chorus "Sterile soil/Will harden/Wasted world/My garden"
** "The Path", due to being his conclusion to the Witcher Saga, carries a nice lyrical nod to "Wake The White Wolf".
--> '''Wake The White Wolf:''' Wake the white wolf at the dawn of war, the end of the age is a-comin' now.
--> '''The Path:''' Weary wolf at the end of war, loves aloof are apart no more.
** "The Natural Heart" plays this straight and [[InvertedTrope inverts it]], since The Natural Heart carries a lot of motifs over from The New Black Gold (including a very similar opening riff and some recurring lyrics) but it's lyrics provide tonally flipped themes to reflect the change from ''VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution'' to ''VideoGame/DeusExMankindDivided'' regarding augmentation technology.
--> '''The New Black Gold:''' Broken body built anew, spirit lingers torn in two, metal fingers grip my heart so cold.
--> '''The Natural Heart:''' Broken bodies line the walls, Midas empires crash and fall, wings that melt when we try to soar.
** "Clockworks" contains one to "Distant Honor"
--> '''Distant Honor:''' And the sad, sad faces of the weary and worn / Live in bad, bad places that are dreary and torn
--> '''Clockworks:''' And I have been to some bad, bad places / Taken gifts at the darkest shrines / I have seen despair in the saddest faces
** "Numbers" borrows the line "I rush and I run" from "Digital Shadow", and the line "Freedom is a backlight" is a callback to Shadow's "Freedom is a greenlight/redlight".
** ''Break Of Dawn'' has many callbacks to ''Catalcysm'' in the music itself.
** "[[VideoGame/WolfensteinIITheNewColossus Revolution Spark]]" reuses the lines "flawless has no face" and "rightness has no race", from "[[VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder Resistance]]".
* TheCameo: "Second Chance Song" features backup vocals from YouTube's 402THUNDER402 raging at the titular perk.
* ChewBubblegum: Referenced when commenting on Duke Nukem's BadassDecay.
--> Shit- I guess you found more gum.
* CircusOfFear: "Call of Duty Circus" portrays ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty'' as one of these.
* ContentWarnings: Occasionally Gavin will put one in at the start of the video that accompanies a song; usually it consists of a serious warning that quickly turns into a joke. For instance, ''[[VideoGame/Doom2016 Hell to Pay]]'' opens with:
-->''WARNING: This music video contains images of extreme violence, gore, metal, awesomeness, chainsaws, and a severe lack of diplomatic solutions to interpersonal conflicts. Viewer discretion is advised. ''
* CreepyCircusMusic:
** "Joker's Song" opens like the theme for a CircusOfFear and keeps to that tune while Joker invites Batman to his "Fortress of Fun."
** "Call of Duty Circus" also uses this trope.
* {{Crossover}}: He collaborated with Music/TryHardNinja on the latter's ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyGhosts''-themed song "Calling All Ghosts".
* CurseCutShort: In "Rampage". He has no problem with swearing, but prefers to keep his songs PG-13.
* DancinInTheRuins: The lyrics of "Higher Tonight!" allude to this.
--> And when the world is comin' down around me... I'm just gonna keep on dancin'... I'm just gonna keep on dancin'!
* DeadpanSnarker: His responses to some of the more idiotic comments on his videos.
--> '''Youtube Comment:''' I [[VideoGame/CallOfDuty master prestige]] so f all of u
--> '''Gavin:''' You don't need to tell us, we can already tell by your social skills.
* {{Determinator}}: Gavin developed tinnitus, which is a condition that causes you to [[HellIsThatNoise constantly hear a high pitched ringing]]. He has yet to allow it to stop him from making music, although it's a significant obstacle when it comes to live performances.
* DrunkenSong: He made a song about these for [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]], "Nord Mead".
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first handful of songs were much more explicit in referencing their subject matter, to the point of directly mentioning characters or places from the games by name. Later songs would take a more indirect, metaphorical approach. Especially noticeable with [[VideoGame/{{Bulletstorm}} Fire In Your Hole]], [[VideoGame/HalfLife2 Gordon Freeman Saved My Life]], and [[Franchise/MassEffect Commander Shepard]].
* EvenTheSubtitlerIsStumped: In the video for "Niko It's Your Cousin!", when the song gets to a brief segment of [[TheUnintelligible Little Jacob]] singing, the subtitles give up and go "Uhhhh..." before Niko takes over again.
* EvilLaugh: He pulls a particularly magnificent one in "Joker's Song". You'd be forgiven for mistaking it to have come from [[ComicBook/TheJoker the man]] [[Creator/MarkHamill himself.]]
* FakeBand: As Gavin can't play the drums very well, his percussion is entirely sampled. Since Internet Musician isn't the highest paying profession, other instruments like the very prevalent strings are handled the same way. Averted gloriously in "Sweet L.A.", though, where he had guest artists on piano and saxophone.
* FanDumb: According to his Encore articles, this is the reason that the Escapist and Bandcamp versions of Brothers Of The Creed are different is because some fans took offence to the lyrics "And I kill for good/Under my white hood," due to the belief about assassin in white hoods was a reference to the Ku Klux Klan. This is also potentially the reason why the revised version of the song sounds a little awkward and bitter.
* FilkSong: He creates songs based on games he loves. One distinguishing aspect of his work is that he uses completely new music, rather than re-purposing other music with new lyrics.
* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: In "Don't Say A Word", a song based on a game which includes parasites which infect a person and are lethal if they speak even a word of the English language, Gav tells you that,
--> You are the voice in the song yeah\\
It's yours when you sing along
** ...makes you think twice about singing along, doesn't it?
* {{Glamour}}: From "A Dog's Life"
--> No glamour or garb can hide the animal heart inside of me
* HeavyMithril: The metal version of "Wake The White Wolf" takes ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'' and infuses electric guitar and pedals with the original [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bouzouki bouzouki]]-using piece.
* IAmTheBand: He does all work on the music himself, without assistance from other musicians, with a few exceptions, such as [[VideoGame/LANoire "Sweet L.A."]].
* IAmSong: "[[VideoGame/{{Dota2}} I Am Pudge]]", [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin naturally]], though a somewhat less obvious example is "Half-Man's Song", which is one for [[Series/GameOfThrones Tyrion Lannister.]]
** "[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight I Am the Knight]]"; also doubles as a BadassBoast.
** Mother of Flame is [[Series/GameOfThrones Daenerys']].
* {{Instrumentals}}:
** ''Vistas'' is an entire album of them.
** "The Strut", described as "Music to rob banks to."
** "Winter Still" reminiscent of the ambient themes from the actual ''Skyrim'' soundtrack. Compare with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2Q28EyCa1A "Far Horizons"]] from Bethesda.
* InterspeciesRomance: "PLOUGHING A TROLL" is about relationship between a human and a troll. This being [[CrapsackWorld the Witcher-verse]], it ends badly.
* LastNoteHilarity:
** Most notably used in his ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' song, ''Trip to Vegas'', where it ends with the song stuttering and '[[GameBreakingBug crashing to desktop]],' with Gavin saying "God dammit, not again". This is an AffectionateParody of how many people, the artist included, experienced many [[GameBreakingBug problems like crashes and freezes]].
** "Crucible"'s ending represents ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''[='=]s pre-Extended Cut ending: all buildup, no resolution.
* LoudnessWar: The "Everything Up To Eleven Mix" of "Reclaimer" invokes this.
* MonsterClown:
** "Joker's Song" is sung from the perspective of [[ComicBook/TheJoker Mr. J himself]].
** In "Call of Duty Circus", he compares that one player who is constantly sneaking around to a clown.
* NotSoDifferent: From "Joker's Song"
--> [[ThouShaltNotKill But you'll not make it end]], [[JokerImmunity 'cause I'm your only friend]]. We are opposites, but we're the same.
* OdeToIntoxication: [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/miracle-of-sound/5350-Nord-Mead-Skyrim Nord Mead]] is essentially an in-character [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Nordic]] ode to [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin mead]].
* OurLawyersAdvisedThisTrope: The video for "Higher Tonight" has been rated "W for [[DubStep Wubs.]] Unplanned exposure to wubs [[SideEffectsInclude may cause]] erratic bouts of rhythmic head nodding and/or dancing and in some cases feelings of extreme rage and betrayal towards your favorite musicians."
* RealMenWearPink: When asked about having a lot of pink customized cars and weapons in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'', gave this:
--> '''Gavin:''' I like the idea of such hyper-masculine, aggressively macho characters having pink cars & weapons, I think it's funny.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: [[VideoGame/MetroLastLight "The Day The World Died"]] is one to humanity as a whole. In his words, it's "A tribute to man's eternal folly". The chorus ends with "The day the world died, nothing was learned".
* RepulsiveRingmaster: ''Call of Duty Circus'' is sung from the point of view of one of these, presenting the people who play ''Call of Duty'' as freaks at a CircusOfFear.
* TheRockStar: He used to be one in the band Lotus Lullaby.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: He's comin' for your tank, bitch!
* SelfBackingVocalist: As a one man band, most of his songs use multiple layers on the vocals. Especially prevalent in [[VideoGame/BioShock Little Sister]].
* SingleStanzaSong: [[http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebF6Fqhq1P4 Beauty Bleak]] features only three lines. ''Sterile soil will harden/Wasted world, my garden/Beauty bleak in a wasted world''
* SingingVoiceDissonance: He sings with an American accent, but in interviews, he speaks with whimsical Irish accent. He has explained this to the fans who think he's [[FakeIrish putting it on]]. (Especially after ''Nord Mead'', in which he uses his natural accent.)
* SongStyleShift: Dream of The Sky is a mish-mash of musical styles emulating the [[spoiler:alternate realities]] and anachronistic music featured heavily in [[VideoGame/BioShockInfinite its inspiration.]]
* ShoutOut: The song "I Suck At ''Call of Duty''" has a reference to LetsPlay/SeaNanners, who was well-known for his ''[=CoD=]'' videos at the time.
** ''[[Film/MadMaxFuryRoad Road Rage]]'' has the line "Speedin' to the rhythm of the [[Film/MadMaxBeyondThunderdome thunder in your dome]]".
** During ''Shooter Guy'', he [[BriefAccentImitation briefly imitates]] [[Creator/BenCroshaw Yahtzee]] when singing about ''Franchise/GearsOfWar'''s infamous [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation Chest High Walls]].
* TakeThat:
** "Roll Out" features a line in its chorus that says "we're making a bigger [[Film/TransformersFilmSeries mess]] than Creator/MichaelBay".
** "Trip to Vegas" ends with ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' crashing, and Gavin uttering a soft "Oh goddamn it, not again...".
** "The Call of Duty Circus" is essentially one long take that towards the various types of players in ''Call of Duty''. For example:
--> Roll up and see the amazing moving statue! SNEAK ATTACK!\\
He waits in corners till you pass then shoots you in the back. (Ha ha!)\\
He never moves or shoot so he will always blow.\\
For all he cares about in life's his Kill/Death ratio!
** Doorfighter" is a short song dedicated to directing one of these at the bizarre trend of smashing down and destroying doors.
** "Wigglesticks" is a quick song directed towards the abundance of [[PressXToNotDie QTEs]] in ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil6''.
** A brief one happens during "I Am the Night" that refers to the changing of Riddler challenges to races.
-->"Wit for pace this riddle's just a race..."
* TitleDrop: The majority of his song titles feature in the lyrics, usually the chorus.
* UpdatedRerelease:
** Gavin re-released ''The New Black Gold'', his ''Human Revolution'' song, for his 100th video, completely re-recording the song in the process.
** ''Take it Back'', his ''Mass Effect 3'' song, got an updated version with better layer balancing to celebrate the release of the 'Extended Cut' patch for the game.
** ''Digital Shadow'' has an updated version with different balancing, called "Digital Shadow 2014".
** "Wake the White Wolf" was originally released as a folk song, but he later decided to redo it as a metal song.
** "Shadow of the Ash" was later released again with an "alternative vocals" mix.
** "Sovngarde Song" was completely re-recorded and updated, nearly five years after its initial release. It apparently took him over 200 hours of work before he was satisfied with releasing it.
* UpToEleven: Ladies and gentlemen, the [[http://miracleofsound.bandcamp.com/track/reclaimer-everything-up-to-eleven-mix "Everything Up To Eleven Mix"]] of [[{{VideoGame/Halo4}} Reclaimer]].
* VillainSong: ''Joker's Song'', which is from the Joker's point of view about his obsession with Batman.
* VisualPun: In the video for "My Iron Skin," the lyrics, ''I been tryin' to take a detour from these patriotic roads'', play over a picture of War Machine, real name James "Rhodey" Rhodes.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Gavin has this relationship with [[WebVideo/{{Jimquisition}} Jim Sterling]].
* WomanScorned: In "PLOUGHING A TROLL", the she-troll eats the farmer once he grows tired of her.
* WarIsHell: The basis of the song "[[VideoGame/Battlefield1 Pawns of War]]".
* WordSaladLyrics: To someone unfamiliar with ''VideoGame/{{Soma}}'', the lyrics for [[https://youtu.be/kYLzNiRHTNo Ditto]] can be a tad obtuse, particularly its main recurring line of "Divide the zero down/Sunder and multiply me" and the variations thereof, resulting in some confusion in the YouTube comments section.
* YouWouldntLikeMeWhenImAngry: From "A Dog's Life," about werewolf protagonist Bigby from ''VideoGame/TheWolfAmongUs''
-->Don't shake me/Don't make me bare my teeth/You really don't wanna meet that guy
