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

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:

Looks like I'm not gonna be able to 100% Tearaway Unfolded until Monday at the least. I'm definitely writing about it this weekend and am trying my hardest to get my screenshots off of my PS4 (especially hard as I don't do social media anymore)

Shakedown Hawaii is giving me good GTA vibes. I missed the topdown GTA games when they were a thing. I have to decide what platform to get it for since it's coming to 3DS/Vita/PS4/PC (probably the Vita version for moi).

You think your art sucks? Here's the rule34 I made of Larx yesterday. Look at it and despair.

Hey Dreamweaver? If you think your art sucks, you should have a look at my magnum opus. It's of Cloud from the popular game, Final Fantasy: All the Bravest.

I never thought this would happen, but here I am. all of my 700+ pokemon gone in one day. My cart stopped working and there's nothing I can do. I quit, you can't just rebuild all that. Time to find something else.

Does anyone know how to get PS4 screenshots onto a PC without needing a flash drive? I don't have a spare.

This is an example of how bad my drawings are. I honestly think drawing stick figures would've been easier on the eyes. :( The worst thing about this image is that this was made after I got BETTER. Trust me, you don't want to see my earlier stuff. T^T

Back in tip-top shape guys, feel waaaaay better than I have done these past few weeks. Plus my voice sounds slightly raspy now, meaning my Batman impression has been upgraded. Apologies to Gaj and Solar the most, my male-up kisses go to you: Xxxxxx

Wait... Is that...? Could it be...? It IS! Gravity Rush's Kat has taken a break from rushing and graviting to sacrifice some souls in Soul Sacrifice Delta! Which isn't even going for $8 on the PS Store right now! What a steal!

Finally got my in game time down to under an hour in Super Metroid. I'm pretty happy about that.

Unpopular opinion time: I not only consider Kanye West to be one of my favorite rappers of all-time — yes, I'm being serious — but he's one of the very few people in the world whom I'd consider to be a role model. I truly wish he would notice me one d
