The lights are on
Apparently, when you look at the actual files of the Fez soundtrack with a spectrogram, you'll find images of historical figures and scannable QR codes, one of which reveals a series of dates.
None of the secrets seem to interact with the game directly. It doesn't seem to reveal hidden areas of the game, or anything along those lines. Check out our original story below on how to get your hands on the soundtrack, which is great even without hidden pictures of eyeballs and smiley faces embedded in the song.
Fez released on April 13, and the soundtrack became available to pick up on Friday.
Click here to grab the album from artist Disasterpeace. You can also stream the soundtrack from the site if you just want some pleasant background noises while you write news stories on the weekend for Game Informer. I may be the only one using it for that express purpose, though.
Each of the 26 tracks has a brief description of how it was written, or the idea behind it. I am a fan of the track 'Sync' in particular.

We can hide pictures in music... Challange Accepted!
Wow this is awesome.
Im saving this game for later. I bought it last week and beat the first level and instantly knew this game is going to make my head hurt. I'll wait until I beat Trials Evo and Witcher 2 before I get back into it.
thanks for the heads up. this is now one of my favorite game soundtracks.
This is kind of funny to me. I think the only thing I do not like about the game is its soundtrack. I mean, I REALLY don't like it so far(I haven't beaten the game yet, so I'm sure I haven't heard all of the music). Most of the time I don't even notice the soundtrack, unless it is particularly good, but this one is particularly bad. I just doesn't seem to correlate to the game properly. I found myself saying,"What is that annoying sound?" Well, that is the great soundtrack GI seems to like. Nice.
Ohh thats cool.
And these images relate to the game... how?
I don't know why this is so amazing to people.
Portal had an entire viral campaign around this stuff. Yet some
artsy-fartsy game does it for no apparent reason and everyone acts like
its the first time anyone has done this.
The soundtrack was adequate but didn't blow me away. Maybe Disasterpeace should have spent more time making killer tunes and less time putting pictures and messages in them.
The mood the song convey was impressive however.
