Maxime Noel (Wild_Cat)
Website: http://www.facebook.com/maxfnoel
Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Role on Project: Bassist
Collaboration: Survivors of the Storm
Description: Max originally hails from Toulon, France. But after finding a rusty bass guitar embedded in a rock at the bottom of a waterfall (a completely original and unique fate, which surely can't have happened to all of the musicians on this album, right?) and unleashing the evil of '90s eurodance upon the world, he was banished from his home country. Now armed with the power of video game music, Max roams the white forests of the Canadian Ice Country in search of Prog Spheres, and will join any party of adventurers that seeks to end Celine Dion's dark reign of adult contemporary terror.
About the Game: "Secret of Mana is one of my favourite and most-played SNES games -- and it has the best SNES soundtrack ever."
About the Project: "Frankly, it's gonna be hard to top that one. This is one of the best game soundtracks of all time, in the hands of some the best arrangers and musicians I know -- more than sixty of them, including critically acclaimed VGM composers. Add to that enough artwork to fill several booklets' worth of awesomeness... Face it: whatever comes after Spectum of Mana is gonna look cheap in comparison. But we'll keep trying."
