by Manami Matsumae
Manami Matsumae, best known as the composer behind the original Mega Man soundtrack, brings her first ever solo album to CD and vinyl. Three Movements celebrates her thirty years of working as a composer in the video game industry.
All copies of Brave Wave's 2-LP gatefold vinyl release include a signed and numbered postcard from Manami Matsumae along with three bonus tracks. All copies of Three Movements include a digital download that will be delivered along with your physical copy.
The solo album features Matsumae’s signature catchy and memorable tunes while showcasing a new side of her that fans rarely get to see. She ventures into chiptunes, trance, orchestral, and ambient soundscapes – woven into a classical narrative that splits this blend of genres into three distinct parts.
“By this point, I've created music for a number of video games,” says Matsumae about the album’s diverse lineup of tracks. “These songs come in a variety of genres, and I want everyone to listen to the different styles I've experienced throughout the years, which is why I ended up creating my album in this fashion.”
