And now, although nobody asked for it, here is the almost complete soundtrack music collection from The Secret City hosted by Commander Mark.
The Secret City Theme
This theme is a splice of the opening and closing themes. The sound effect of the rocket blasting off in the opening credits is not present in this edited version.
“Take A Look At This Painting”
This theme was played when Commander Mark presented artwork from other artists. It was also used as the background music for the animation of the special art word “twist”.
This background music played while Metaman was miming his “contraption” in episode 36. See it on YouTube. This was also used for special art word variety.
Special Art Words
Besides the seven magic words of drawing (surface, size, density, overlapping, contour, shading and foreshortening), Commander Mark highlighed a special art word in almost every episode. Each of these art words had their own theme associated with them.
The Mural Themes
The Secret City Mural grew in size over the course of the series as Commander Mark drew additional characters and scenes using the episode’s featured magic word and special art word of drawing. Occasionally, the camera would pan over the mural with background music. The Secret City Mural is memorialized on YouTube.
BONUS: The New Secret City Adventures Themes
This was a short-lived drawing series from Mark Kistler following the success of The Secret City. This series featured one of my favorite robots – BobTron.
