Switched On SNES is a series of soundtracks played on analog synthesizers and drum machines. The goal of the project is to expose listeners to the musical masterpieces that have been overlooked - mostly because of the 16bit instrumentation.
Link to the Past is the first installment of soundtracks which will include: Secret of Mana, Earthbound, Donkey Kong Country, and others. Royalties from sales will go towards the composer Koji Kondo/Nintendo.
Oh man, this gave me goosebumps in a big way. There's something about that sound that I love so much. I cannot wait to hear the other albums!
