The founding musicians were Andrew Sega and Dan Gardopée, joined later by Alexander Brandon. Straylight composed soundtracks for Origin Systems' Crusader series. They also worked with Epic Games, for whom music was produced for Unreal, Unreal Tournament, Tyrian, and Jazz Jackrabbit 2 (the original Jazz Jackrabbit music was by Epic's own Robert A. Allen). Alexander Brandon was assisted by Michiel van den Bos with some of the soundtracks, although Van den Bos was not a part of Straylight. Their last involvement with the Unreal franchise was with Unreal Mission Pack: Return to Na Pali.
Andrew Sega had all but left the company before the soundtrack for Unreal was started, but as an "honorary member" of Straylight, a cleaned-up version of his "Isotoxin" piece, minus the introduction, was included in the soundtrack. Likewise, his "Mechanism Eight" piece was included in the Unreal Tournament soundtrack.
One of their last projects before the disbandment was the soundtrack for Ion Storm's Deus Ex and games for portable consoles.
- The name of Straylight Productions came from the Villa Straylight in William Gibson's Neuromancer.
