IFMF, a Spanish festival known for hosting live performances of film music and handing out Jerry Goldsmith awards, has just signed their PR department with the Japanese videogame composer Yasunori Mitsuda. The festival proudly announced they’ll be his representative in both Europe and USA.
Mitsuda’s been active within the industry for over 20 years.
Mitsuda’s been active within the industry for over 20 years, making music for Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Xenoblade or FFXV. He is considered to be one of the best and most prolific composers of videogame music, with his soundtracks being celebrated on concerts since mid-90’s. Despite his talent for scoring games, he’s been extending his career towards other media like TV and films.
It’s great to see the Japanese composer noticed by IFMF, and I hope to see his music celebrated there, too. Whatever the two parties come up with needs to be in game music fans scopes. We will let you know when something comes up.
