Switched On SNES - Secret of Mana LP


Secret of Mana is the second installment of analog synthesizer Super Nintendo soundtracks from Switched On SNES. Hiroki Kikuta's classic 1993 soundtrack has returned in an all new way – played on Moog and other classic synthesizers, reminiscent of Mort Garson's Plantasia and Isao Tomita's Snowflakes Are Dancing. Old tape machines and echo units create a warbly and rich analog texture, imparting a dreamlike feel to Kikuta's compositions. The new instrumentation feels otherworldy while still invoking the nostalgia from the original soundtrack. Clocking in at 38-minutes, it's pressed here on 180g vinyl with a 3 × 19 insert poster.
