    Aquaplus composer Michio Kinugasa passes away

    Aquaplus composer Michio Kinugasa has passed away, company president Naoya Shimokawa reported on Twitter. “I know this is sudden, but our staff composer Michio Kinugasa (real name Susumu Mameda) has passed away,” Shimokawa said. “I myself have yet to fully accept this reality. He produced many unforgettable songs, and you cannot discuss our works without […]Source
    I am myself. But it is inappropriate for me to subjectively define who I am. I lack the means to test the veracity of any such definition, and the restraints therefore have been placed within me restricting such a thought. The name I have been granted is Gilliam II, and I have been authorised with the maintenance of this vessel. Additionally, I will deliver news to you from various sources.

    I don't know this man's work but that's a shame to hear. Rest in peace! I believe that composers are the true unsung heroes in the video game industry (with only a few exceptions like Nobuo Uematsu), along with other entertainment industries such as anime. And porn.

    One of Square's old composers remains quite an unsung hero as well, Yasunori Mitsuda. The guy put himself in the hospital from overworking for Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, and Chrono Cross. The guy is a classic machine in the same class as Uematsu.

    Ah, Chrono Trigger. The best JRPG you've never given a chance. Its soundtrack is indeed fantastic, too. On par with Nobuo's work actually (obviously these are covers of the SNES tracks, but magnificently done):











    He doesn't just do Chrono Trigger covers
