    And now, the final composer for “The Masters of VGM”. While she has only done one video game soundtrack, Cœur de Pirate (stage name for Beatrice Martin) has the receipts for her incredible work on the game. Playing piano at the age of three, she studied for several years at a conservatory, played in a band as a keyboardist, and released a debut album that would gain notoriety thanks to a viral video. After working on a collaboration with several different musicians, directing her first music video, and composing her second album, she was approached by Ubisoft Montreal to compose for their upcoming video game ‘Child of Light’.

    While I could talk ad nauseam about her work, I believe her songs will speak for themselves when you have a listen. So, enjoy this final episode of “The Masters of VGM” and many thanks for listening and subscribing to this podcast.



    Welcome back! This month barSILENCE is celebrating the Masters of VGM podcasting event with the episode in the series. We’re going to listen to the enduring and memorable music of Akira Yamaoka and Shinji Hosoe.

    If you had to pick four legendary composers that best represents you…as well as all of video game music, who would you pick?

Yeah, that’s right. Your boys from XVGM Radio are here to break down all the barriers. All jokes aside though, Mike and Justin pick their heaviest of hitters in their VGM opinions. From discussions on the impressive echo of Iku Mizutani’s NES bangers, to the sentimental tears Justin shed over Final Fantasy 9’s ending, XVGM Radio takes you through some of their favorite composers and the tracks they feel best represent them.

    Now we shall talk about one of the more famous and familiar composers among the VGM community and perhaps outside: Yoko Shimomura.

    She is best known for her compositions of the Kingdom Hearts series, but that required working on many titles beforehand. This week’s episode, we’ll go through her career, listening to several tracks from long list of her works, starting with Street Fighter II, going through several games in the JRPG genre, and then working on another fighting franchise. As usual, each of her original tracks will have a cover or remix paying tribute.

    Now, grab a nice, tall glass of your favorite drink and enjoy these tracks in Part Three of “The Masters of VGM”.
