Michael Jackson aurait composé la musique de Sonic 3 ?

Par François le

En voilà une news insolite si il en est…

Il semblerait, selon l’un de ses proches collaborateurs de l’époque, Brad Buxer, que Michael Jackson et lui aient travaillé ensemble sur différents morceaux du titre de SEGA.

Michael Jackson n’aurait pas été séduit à l’époque par le son produit par la console, et n’aurait donc pas souhaité être crédité pour la chose. Pour en rajouter un peu, on apprend que la base du morceau serait à l’origine de la base du titre « Stranger in Moscow » bien plus récent lui…

Dans la suite vous trouverez l’interview de Brad Buxer…

B&W: Can you clarify the rumor that Michael had in 1993 composed the music for Sonic 3 video game, for which you havel been credited?

Buxer: I’ve never played the game so I do not know what tracks on which Michael and I have worked the developers have kept, but we did compose music for the game. Michael called me at the time for help on this project, and that’s what I did.
And if he is not credited for composing the music, it’s because he was not happy with the result sound coming out of the console. At the time, game consoles did not allow an optimal sound reproduction, and Michael found it frustrating. He did not want to be associated with a product that devalued his music…

B&W: One of the surprising things in this soundtrack is that you can hear the chords from Stranger in Moscow, which is supposed to have been composed later…

Buxer: Yes, Michael and I had composed those chords for the game, and it has been used as base for Stranger in Moscow.
