Masashi Hamauzu

A prolific and versatile composer of popular video game and anime scores, most notably for the ubiquitous Final Fantasy game series, Nobuo Uematsu was born and raised in Kochi, Japan. A self-taught piano player, he graduated from Kanagawa University and played keyboards in local bands, eventually finding work as a composer for radio commercials by sending out his music demos. He moved into the video game medium in the mid-'80s when a friend offered work at the company then known as Squaresoft (later Square Enix). There, he composed music for dozens of games, including the first Final Fantasy installment, released in 1987. He went on to write or co-write music for the international blockbuster series through 2002's Final Fantasy XI. During that time, he released an album of original electronic keyboard music in 1994 titled Phantasmagoria, and many other game scores including 1995's Chrono Trigger (co-written with Yasunori Mitsuda). In his break from the Final Fantasy series after the 11th game, he composed a film score for 2003's Ah! My Goddess: The Movie, and founded his own companies, Smile Please in 2004 and Dog Ear Records Co., Ltd. in 2006. He also provided music for over a dozen video games including 2006's Blue Dragon, and television music for the 2007 anime series based on the Blue Dragon game. Uematsu composed music for the anime television series Guin Saga in 2009, and finally returned to the Final Fantasy franchise as the main composer for Final Fantasy XIV in 2010. He continued a dedicated schedule of game scoring into the 2010s, including but not limited to 2012's Fantasy Life, 2013's Hometown Story and Granblue Fantasy (both with Tsutomu Narita), and 2014's Terra Battle. ~ Marcy Donelson, Rovi

One small problem: the bio is of Nobuo Uematsu and this piece is by Masashi Hamauzu!!! WAKEE WAKEE PANDORA!!!

Kingdom hearts is my favorite game!

Yeah can the user that made this channel change the bio from nobuo uematsu's?
Report as inappropriate
Somebody fix this please... He deserves credit I played some of the games with his music both are very skilled but this bio should be about Masashi
Report as inappropriate
The header says Hamauzu, but the bio is about Nobuo Uematsu. This is problematic, as they are not the same dude.

Never played the games, but both nobuo and masashi composed amazing music

The bio is about Nobuo Uematsu although it should be about Masashi. Please correct Pandora!

Masashi and Nobuo need to do music for just one FF game. That would be nice.

You don't need to play the game to know when you hear some good chords, synchronizat i o n , and a spectacular motif. Snow's theme

Love the music from FFXIII. Completely different sounds to the earlier games of the series like FF8. Story was a little linear, but not bad.

My favorite character are Lightning, Hope, and Vanille.

Well, actually, Lightning was the ONLY good character in that game. Which was only one of many problems including weird naming, and overly complicated controls.
Report as inappropriate
Lightning. It flashes bright, then fades away. It can't protect. It only destroys...

@bahamut5098 That's a lie, any FF game is awesome. I couldn't live without FF.

this guys fantastic, creating some of the best video game soundtracks yet

Don't read this cause it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day ofyour life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary. Put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letters. This is scary cause it really works

This is the best soundtrack for any video game ever. There has never been a better one than this, and there never will be. Period.
Report as inappropriate
Favorite characters were Hope and Vanille. ^-^
Report as inappropriate
This one was a very pretty game, with actually pretty neat fight mechanics. It was very fun to 'play'. But the plot was terrible, and each character was very dry; there was very little immersion. Very sad thing to say about a Final Fantasy. But there isn't anything specifically memorable about the music either. That can go a long way in adding character emotion in the plot (like Aeris's or Kefka's themes). Most of this game sounded more like background elevator music.

I totally love this radio! But can there be some FFXIII-2 and Sigma Harmonics tracks? I'd love to hear more from Masashi

I love this radio, but I would love to hear more of FFXIII, one of my favorite soundtracks from final fantasy and the main reason I started this radio. Most of what I get is solo piano players, which I already have plenty of radios for.

Great work on FFXIII OST, Hamauzu San

As much as I like Masashi Hamauzu, I'm thrilled that SquareSoft had Nobuo Uematsu compose the music for FFVII:AC. I absolutely love Tatakau Monotachi; song that plays when Tifa gets her a** kicked by Mr. Emo Crybaby with the fist weapon. Which I'll never forgive SquareSoft for. Tifa is the s***. Period.
