Scarlet Moon artists brings global music talent to a game near you

7:00 PM on 06.03.2014 // GRIMECRAFT

Renowned composers from around the globe are now available to work on games both big and small

Scarlet Moon Productions today announced the launch of Scarlet Moon Artists, an artist group dedicated to bringing renowned composers from around the globe to a game near you. Bridging the gap between East and West, the composers come from Japan, Korea, and the United States, and have collectively worked on titles as diverse as Final FantasySecret of Mana, and Ragnarok Online to OtomediusTekken Tag Tournament, and Transformers: The Movie (1986).

Each of the nine artists wants to work with developers both big and small in order to bring their signature soundscapes to a global audience. Scarlet Moon Artists gives developers access to some of the biggest names game music has to offer, breaking down language and logistical barriers that would have previously made reaching and working with these artists difficult.

The roster includes (in alphabetical order):

Vince DiCola & Kenny Meriedeth (Rocky IVSaturday Morning RPGTransformers: The Movie)
Shinji Hosoe (Mega Man Network TransmissionRidge Racer series, Tekken Tag Tournament 2)
Hiroki Kikuta (KoudelkaSecret of ManaSoul Calibur V)
Osamu Kubota (BeatmaniaGranado Espada)
Justin Lassen (Herbert the Misanthropic FlyOtomedius ExcllentSynaethesia)
Goomin Nam (Bar Oasis series, Monarch: Heroes of a New AgeTalesWeaver)
Dale North (Dragon Fantasy Book II, OverClocked ReMix contributions, Silent Horror)
Jinbae Park (PangYa PortableRagnarok OnlineRidge Racer 7)
Hitoshi Sakimoto (Final Fantasy XIIGradius VValkyria Chronicles series)

"Having been a fan of some of these artists since my early childhood, you can imagine my excitement at the prospect of finding them new and exciting projects to contribute to," comments Scarlet Moon Productions founder Jayson Napolitano. "In that sense, Scarlet Moon Artists serves the established fan-bases of each of these artists in addition to the artists themselves, as I know many game music enthusiasts, myself included, would love to hear more of their music in games!"

Scarlet Moon Artists has launched an a website with streaming music samples from each artist. There's also a contact form where interested parties can inquire about a specific composer's availability for work on a project:

Transformers Devastation PS4 - $24. The Order 1886 $10. Digital flash sale on PSN. I think I'm going to have to bite on both these. And I hate digital if I can avoid it ...

Remember folks, don't forget to smoke cigarettes in between courses during thanksgiving to help in digestion.

For friends in UK that want a 3DS XL - 99.99 pounds [url][/url]

Playing New Vegas again because reasons, it occurs to me that it'd be nice if Old World Blues gave me the option to move the Brotherhood of Steel to the Big MT instead of wiping them out for Mr. House.

Near heart attack as for a minute it seemed like the A button of my 3DS was busted. It's fine now though, I think we'll live.

There's now a £4/$5 Raspberry Pi. So cheap it's a cover extra on the latest Mag Pi. Based on the original chipset, it's single core but clocked at 1Ghz so it's quite a bit faster and oh so tiny. I can't wait to see what folks build with it.

After a lifetime of not spending a single cent on FTP games, I finally broke and dropped €1 in the Nintendo Badge Arcade. I just had to have all the Luigi badges asap. I feel dirty. Plus side, my 3ds will be covered in Luigi.

I tried driving as Uber last night to start supplementing my income and everyone so far has been super chill. Also, I started practicing in my sleepy small home city so the training wheels were still on. No big city bar hoppers just yet.

Just got my Gwent physical edition. I don't understand special abilities - for example, Arachas have an icon with two knights beneath the close combat icon. Avallac'h has an eye in that same spot. Help? (I'm no longer a squid btw)

Happy Thanksgiving all! Load up on carbs and then get back to playing Fallout 4.

I dunno if I just had a freak incident but I think Ubisoft may have just changed the Renown gain in Rainbow Six Siege to be less shit as in overnight they've patched it. If true, kinda good on them.

Does it mess with anyone else's head that when beating a SMBW level in Mario Maker the music doesn't do that little 'booowoo oop' at the end. [youtube][/youtube]

I've developed a new hobby to indulge in while on Skype with friends: creating stupid Sonic OCs. I have so much fun making them for some weird reason, and once I have enough of them I might as well post a c-blog of them, am I right? Look out in the future

Boy howdy, does Divinity: Original Sin take a while to get going. But, it was worth it in the end. Probably the most hardcore RPG I've played. Stellar writing, at that! Combat's pretty amazing too. [img][/img]

So it seems I've locked into the Neutral ending for SMT IV and now I need to find specific challenge quests and complete them...? How (un)fun! Google is your friend - the videogame.
