The '''''Half-Life'' soundtrack''' was composed by Kelly Bailey.

Because the ''Half-Life'' CD-ROM complies to WikipediaCompact Disc Digital Audio|Red Book audio standards, it is possible to listen to the soundtrack through regular CD players (starting from track 02, as track 01 is the data track). It is also possible to extract all audio tracks heard in-game in the Steam version by navigating to steamapps\common\Half-Life\valve\media. On September 24, 2014, the soundtrack was made available as http//store.steampowered.com/app/323130/ free DLC to all owners of the game on Steam.
