The Journey is a radio station featured in Grand Theft Auto IV that plays ambient and downtempo music.

Description[]

The Journey is an ambient music station. It is hosted by a Fruit computer using a synthesized female voice. The computer often mentions that "life is actually a game" and discusses, amongst other topics, the "relationship between computers and life." The computer's dialogue includes statements which appear to be existential and philosophical, but are really nonsensical and meaningless. Despite it, the computer sometimes acknowledges the virtual reality of the city and breaks the fourth wall, telling listeners that they are "living in a simulation".

In Episodes from Liberty City, The Journey does not appear and is instead replaced by another ambient radio station, Self-Actualization FM although in Grand Theft Auto IV: The Complete Edition, The Journey, along with all other GTA IV exclusive radio stations, appears in The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.

This is Derrick McReary's favourite radio station, alongside Self-Actualization FM.

Influence[]

The voice used for the station's computer host is the "Vicki" voice from Apple's PlainTalk speech software.

Prominent Appearances in Gameplay[]

Individual Tracks[]

  • "Z Twig" by Aphex Twin is featured in the Niko Bellic trailer on the Grand Theft Auto IV website.
  • "Pruit Igoe" by Philip Glass is featured in the "Things Will Be Different" trailer for Grand Theft Auto IV, and also plays following both endings of the game.

Trivia[]

  • "Z Twig" by Aphex Twin is credited in the game as "Selected Ambient Works Volume II, CD2 TRK5". The reason for this is because the tracks on that album are not named and are instead referenced by a corresponding image.
  • "5:23 (Maiden Voyage)" by Global Communication was incorrectly credited as "Global Communication: 8:07" in Grand Theft Auto IV: The Complete Edition. This change was reverted to the correct title with the March 19, 2020 "The Complete Edition" patch.
