SNESology delivers hot, original SNES music to your door


8:00 AM on 08.26.2012



We've featured musician Shnabubula's videogame-themed albums in the past, so I'm nothing less than pleased about his latest endeavor. Back in May, he released SNESology, a completely free collection of original music that used instrument soundsets from specific SNES games. However, that was just the start of something bigger.

Shnabubula has since invited various artists from the arrangement community to contribute their own SNES-inspired songs to the ongoing SNESology initiative. Among the currently available tunes are original numbers as well as remakes of pre-existing game tracks in the style of a completely different game. For example, above is RoeTaKa's cover of "Tears" from Max Payne 3 using the Contra III soundset. Some pretty high quality stuff! Serves as a reminder of just how amazing SNES music was and always will be.

Eventually, the soundsets that the artists used will be made available publicly so that any aspiring musician can tool around with them. In the meantime, follow the project on Facebook and listen to some more choice submissions after the break.


RoeTaKa - Assassin's Creed 2 / Revelations cover (Chrono Trigger soundset)


some1namedjeff - "Most Beautiful Seduction" (Final Fantasy VI soundset)


William Kage - "Infiltrate, Assassinate" (EarthBound, Yoshi's Island, Killer Instinct, and Hyper Zone soundsets)


Monobrow - "Secret Inside Me" (Secret of Mana, Terranigma, and Final Fantasy VI soundsets)

More beautiful game-inspired woodblock prints you can buy

We've shown off Jed Henry's Japanese woodblock renditions of game characters before. I'm still in love with that original Samus one. But Henry's catalog is growing, to my wallet's growing concern. Shadow of the Colossus, Fina...more
