Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the original Pokémon Red and Green soundtracks, the newly-released Harmony of a Champion allows fans to relive their favorite moments through a collection rock, electronic, and orchestral arrangements that incorporate sound design to tell the game's story.
Produced by the Shinesparkers fan community and published by Materia Collective, the album features talent from across the globe such as Rozen (Sins of Hyrule), Laura Intravia (Video Games Live, Destiny), Spencer Bambrick (BestLuck), and sound designer Gina Zdanowicz (BioShock 2, Just Cause 3). All-in-all, Harmony of a Champion consists of more than two and a half hours of music.
"I hold the original generation of games in high regard for all of the wonderful memories and friendships that were born from playing them," notes Shinesparkers creator Darren Kerwin. "Harmony of a Champion is an opportunity to experience the story of Red and his journey from a ten-year-old boy who grew up in Pallet Town to becoming a Pokémon Champion, through the inclusion of sound design across the album to add narrative and express the story more effectively."
Harmony of a Champion is available via Spotify, Bandcamp, and iTunes. The album is licensed with all profits being donated to Child's Play Charity.
