Ever see video game soundtracks in the record store crates? Ever wonder who buys them? Well, I met one on the way home last night – Masuyama! I stopped Masuyama out in front of Disk Union in Shimokita and asked him what he scored and he pulled out this intriguing gem which I had no idea about. Masuyama explained it was released by Nintendo for a game …OK, interesting. We had a nice chat and he did a cool pose for me. Thanks, Masa for the photo and for sharing your record with me!
But wait, there is more… I found the whole record on Youtube and am listening to it now, and it’s absolutely phenomenal – extremely cool. Here are some of the comment people left on YouTube:
“Many blame this game and its music for being too avant-garde, yet I think it’s one of the most fascinating things Nintendo ever released. I still find it mysterious and intriguing twenty years later.”
“This is such a gem! One of the most beautiful soundtracks ever created in my opinion.”
“Love how this game is starting to get the recognition it deserves, one of the most experimental and interesting games Nintendo has ever made.”
“One of sixty most beautiful, interesting, profound, original, harmonically complex, underappreciated and comfortable albums we succeeded to find in three years of extensive youtube search in which we listened to about three thousand albums.”
“God, this is one of my favorite soundtracks of all time. Listening to it more and more just puts me in this state of zen, and it serves as a prime example of how beautiful music can be. I love it more than anything, and it’s so fitting that it belongs to the game it does. Doshin the Giant is a masterpiece that is nowhere near as recognized as it should be. For all those listening, please enjoy this corner of the internet that you’ve been lucky enough to stumble upon.”
…now THIS is what it’s all about! Found an amazing new piece of music and a cool person who turned me on!
Thanks again Masa san! Hope to meet again!
