Scarlet Moon Productions has recently launched Scarlet Moon Artists, which provides the services of nine video game music artists to game developers big and small. Each artist is also experienced in working with different games, and they have collectively worked on titles that include Secret of Mana, Ragnarok Online, and Final Fantasy XII.
Scarlet Moon Artists hopes to allow these artists from Japan, Korea, and the United States to work on many new and unique projects. Scarlet Moon Productions founder, Jayson Napolitano, commented that this would also bring more music to the fan-bases of each artist. This would otherwise be difficult to accomplish because of the language and logistical barriers that exist.
“My partner Kenny Meriedeth and I are excited to be working in the game music industry,” said Vince DiCola, known for his work on Rocky IV and the 1986 animated Transformers film. “After already having enjoyed some success with Scarlet Moon Records on the original soundtrack for Mighty Rabbit Studios’s Saturday Morning RPG, we’re looking forward to even greater success ahead as a result of our collaboration through Scarlet Moon Artists.”
Scarlet Moon Artists launched their website with streaming music samples from each artist, including Hitoshi Sakimoto. Developers can then inquire about a specific composer’s availability for a project through the contact form. The list of artists includes:
- Vince DiCola & Kenny Meriedeth (Saturday Morning RPG)
- Shinji Hosoe (Tekken Tag Tournament 2)
- Hiroki Kikuta (Secret of Mana)
- Osamu Kubota (Beatmania)
- Justin Lassen (Herbert the Misanthropic Fly)
- Goomin Nam (Bar Oasis series)
- Dale North (Silent Horror and OC Remix contributor)
- Jinbae Park (Ragnarok Online)
- Hitoshi Sakimoto (Final Fantasy XII)
