At the core of human and of all cosmic life is the vibrant force, the quiver at the heart of all creation, emanating as a shimmering luminous ocean of sound, and manifesting as all forms and phenomena. These frequencies, in their varying degrees of vibration, are manifestations of Shakti in its cosmic and individual form. As the ebb and flow on the sea of infinity, these divine pulsations are rhythms of creation and Kundalini is the orchestrating power that moves it all in waves of bliss. And though it is the power that illumines all experiences, there is no way to grasp nor describe its brilliance when it reveals itself in the heart of men as joy personified.
While composer Koji Kondo had created many different melodies for Super Mario Bros. 3, he decided to use the same melody in Super Mario World, albeit in an arranged form, assuming that the player would be able to recognize the melody while being exposed to new variations of music throughout the game. The melody was believed to be inspired by "Green, Green," a folk song recorded in the 1960s that was very popular in Japan. This being the first game developed for the SNES, Kondo felt "overjoyed" about being able to take advantage of the increased technological capability, which allowed eight instruments to be used at once. To express the technological novelty of the new console, he used samples of several different instruments (as named below), implementing them all, one after the other, in the game's title song. As development progressed, Kondo grew concerned over how people would react to his unusual combinations of instruments as he noted the use of the NES's traditional square waves and triangle waves had "gained acceptance" with consumers. For the game's sound effects, Kondo decided to use a variety of musical instruments to emphasize that the game used traditional technology with a hybrid of new materials; for example, Mario's jumping sound is a reappropriation of a pan flute sample. The music took around a year and a half for Kondo to compose. 350c69d7ab
