  • AudioPanicRoom – Episode #54: MUSE

    A contribution to Masters of VGM, this episode showcases MUSE, a sound unit headed by Akira Sato which composed and arranged music for visual novels back in the 90s. Their work appeared almost exclusively on computers like the PC-98 series or the X60000 and is an excellent example of the FM-sound typically associated with these machines. Included are also a few tracks by Akiragumi, another sound team which Akira Sato was a member of.

  • Re-VGM – Episode 76: Chikayo Fukuda (Masters of VGM)

    Here we are, Week 4 of Masters of VGM.

    This week’s composer is Chikayo Fukuda, known for the .hack series that is developed by CyberConnect2. In addition, she also composed for other video games series, such as Naruto, JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure, and Fuga: Melodies of Steel. She writes music with a certain level of elegance; some of the fights, despite being chaotic and random, are rendered calm and soothing.

    For this episode, we’ll be playing tracks from three games from .hack series: INFECTION, G.U., and LINK. Each track will also be followed by a cover and remix.

    I hope you’ve been enjoying these and other episodes of Masters of VGM. Also be sure to check the website for other podcasts that participating.

  • A VGM Journey – Level 130: Masters of VGM II

    On this episode of the show. The VGM Podcasting community event @MastersofVGM returns and this time focusing on composers that I consider underrated. Featuring the music of Ichiro Shimakura, Laura Shigihara, Hidenori Shoji and Danny Baranowsky.

  • CRT Soundsystem – 020 – MVGM03 – Hitoshi Sakimoto

    I’m joined by @bashfulinternet this week for Episode 3 of @MastersofVGM to talk about some deep cuts from Hitoshi Sakimoto.

  • Re-VGM – Episode 75: Keiichi Suzuki (Masters of VGM)

    Two composers done, and two left to go, for Masters of VGM.

    This week, we’re taking a dive into the Mother series (Earthbound outside of Japan) and featuring Keiichi Suzuki, the composer for the series who worked with Hirokazu Tanaka (aka “Chip Tanaka” or “Hip Tanaka”. Suzuki is purely a musician, having been in several bands and releasing albums with Moonriders and The Beatniks (with Yukihiro Takahashi of Yellow Magic Orchestra), but he was helped by Tanaka-san’s programming ability, translating notes into bits and bytes. While the series itself is very much niche, the tracks are memorable for those who played it; even one of the tracks popped up in certain memes.

    Hope you’re enjoying this and other episodes during the month of June. Also be sure to check out other podcasts participating in the event at their website.
