Shogun Assassin Soundtrack

Shogun Assassin Soundtrack

The Shogun Assassin soundtrack is credited to “The Wonderland Philharmonic”, which was comprised of two primary composers – Mark Lindsay and W. Michael Lewis. ‘Wonderland’ was the name of Mark Lindsay’s private recording studio, and so the name “The Wonderland Philharmonic” was born.

Robert Houston also took part in the recording session and composed the track “The Ninja”.

The film score has a dark, brooding, and sometimes unsettling feel that was created on a Moog Modular synthesizer. It matches the movie perfectly and has gained a cult status all of it own.

The soundtrack was released in the US on vinyl in 1980 on a label created for the release called “Baby-Cart Productions”.
