what age did you become interested in music?
day when I was eight, I saw my brothers Yngwie video (Alcatraz's
Hiroshima monaroom) and I thought this is it!
How did you start at Polyphony Digital?
I was invited to join SCE by a friend of mine. Although
I quit the company before Gran Turismo 3's release I was still
in charge of the game's sound.
Tell us about your music for Gran Turismo 3?
I'm into the game I'm into the music by it's speed instead of
the music itself. About my songs I've created it to be continuos
to the engine's roar. I composed five original songs and one
remix for Lenny Kravitz. Automobiles and anything that moves
was an inspiration to my music!
What were you like during your childhood?
In the old days I was a maniac. Every day I would put my nose
in to some kind of trouble.
favorite tune is "Obscure" because this rock song fits
best for GT3.
Please describe your work on the following games:
Paradox- I made the foot step SE and the BGM. But I had
to get off being in charge of it cause I quit SCE, although
I got to continue on Gran Turismo.
BOOST- I edited the song song for the opening movie. My
boss asked me to do it about a month after I entered SCE so
I did it with my full force.
What is Energy Motion?
my album and it's an instrumental guitar album. But the backing
tracks have kind of a techno feel.
What is your process for creating music?
try to see things from the point of view of the consumers. I'm
tripping like that until the game comes out. The
song images I make do not appear from my instruments. I imagine
everything totally then I dig in to that one flavor.
What advice would you give to those who want to create game
Any Final Thoughts?
I'm gonna try my best so give me a job (Smile)!
