WRWTFWW Records joyfully presents the inaugural physical release of composer and producer Jammin’ Sam Miller's complete HD re-creation/restoration of the cherished Super Metroid video game soundtrack. Encased in a limited edition biovinyl double LP, this release features 27 tracks and showcases exclusive artwork by French illustrator Pierre Thyss, along with an accompanying obi strip.
Originally composed by Kenji Yamamoto and Minako Hamano, the soundtrack for the 1994 SNES exploration/action-adventure/sci-fi/alien video game Super Metroid has always held a special place in the hearts of fans. Revered for its masterful storytelling through music, the soundtrack skillfully captures the epic and eerie journey of the game's protagonist, Samus Aran. It achieves this through atmospheric sounds, space-operatic arrangements, resonant basslines, techno-futurist moods, tribal drums, and ethereal synth themes. The soundtrack adeptly balances the foreboding sense of a dark threat with contemplative and soothing ambient soundscapes.
Jammin' Sam Miller painstakingly recreated the entire soundtrack note by note. He accomplished this by sourcing the original equipment used in its creation, translating MIDI into a modern studio context, incorporating keyboard samples, and meticulously remixing and remastering the entire score. Miller explains, "This was made possible by locating the original instrument samples from workstation keyboards and drum machines before they were put into the game and rebuilding the soundtrack from the ground up, applying some modern mixing techniques along the way to lift the veil of 16-bit compression and create an updated listening experience."
