These are two great composers... Yokko Kano for Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell and others.
Nobuo Uematsu for the FF series music... They're COOL... Fo' Shizzle

Thread title edited to be more fitting. :}

There's only one K in "Yoko". biggrin.gif

I am a Nobuo Uematsu fan. I can easily say that he is one of my favorite composers of all time. Yuki Kajiura is splendid as well, when it comes to the anime/game genres.

No love for Joe Hishaishi? Kanno is an excellent composer because she always seems to be filled with ideas and experimenting all sorts of genres. This is very noticeable in Cowboy Bebop. I'm unfamiliar with Nobuo Uematsu's work however.

Joe Hisaishi's early stuff is very good. However, as time goes on, it seems that he's running out of good ideas, and the development of his themes aren't very original anymore. As well, he tends to use the same chord progressions over and over.

Joe Hisashi does a lot of the studio ghibli songs right?
Nobuo Uematsu: The name just screams final fantasy orchestra music for me...Actually I think he has a concert in Chicago this year?
Yoko Kanno: Great work on so many series ~ The music in Escaflowne and Bebop are two of my favorites still.


I'll add another artist to the list: Masuda Toshio ....for the OST of Mushi-shi ~

Yes, I think he actually does all of it. Don't quote me on that though.

He isn't having a concert, but the Chicagoland Pops Orchestra is. biggrin.gif It's happening next month, and it'll just be the orchestra playing his music, but he himself will not be making an appearance (I don't think).

Kanno's a genius for her work in Bebop. She must have a degree in every genre of music, especially jazz.

The thread has only begun Toby laugh.gif; have faith in us.

Hmm, in around fourth grade we were exposed to a lot of New Yorkan music and the composer that stuck to me the most was George Gershwin. 'Course Rhapsody in
Blue was the first thing I listened to, and I immediately fell in love with it. Unfortunately, I have yet to listen to any of his compositions that were in musicals.

There are the usuals too; Beethoven, Mozart and the such.

Wow, kudos to whoever changed the topic title. biggrin.gif

Since it's changed now, I'll have to give my list of favorites. And boy, it's long.

- Nobuo Uematsu
- Yasunori Mitsuda
- Masahiro Andoh
- Yuki Kajiura
- Yoko Kanno
- Yôko Shimomura
- Kenji Ito
- Noriyuki Iwadare
- Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
- Frédéric Chopin
- Franz Schubert
- Harry Gregson-Williams
- John Williams
- Duke Ellington

For me, some of them are not my favorite based on their overall work, but that they have composed some of my favorite songs.

Did you mean Koji Kondo? Either way, no Kondo's were part of the MOTHER 1 or 2 composition team, as far as I know.

I have not seen the scans so I wouldn't know. Either way, even if that were true, you can't say he was involved in the composing process, since he only synthesized and remixed, which is different from composing.
