Amazing composer, did the music for Silent Hill series, in fact he also plays guitar, here is a video of him playing is ibanez universe with an orchestra performing "The Theme Of Laura". Thought video games buffs like myself would enjoy this.

He is awesome. One of my favourite composers and guitarists (once again, thank you Gen!) even though he doesn't play any super fancy stuff.

I think he's great, I've listened a lot to the Silent Hill soundtracks, lots of cool and atmospheric songs in there! An awesome songwriter definitely! I've tried many times to play Silent Hill 3, but I've always stopped 'cause I was too scared! biggrin.gif
