❝Yuzo Koshiro is a Japanese composer, arranger and programmer whose contributions helped change video game music. Having discovered video games and their music at an early age, Koshiro learned to program using an NEC PC-8801 before landing his first jobs in the industry in early 1980s Tokyo, scoring the background music for games like Bosconian, Tower of Druaga and Sega’s 1987 hit Shinobi. Breaking away from the conventions of early BGM soundtracks, which favored pop, rock and jazz, Koshiro set up his own company, Ancient, and quickly established himself as a pioneer in the field thanks to his programming knowledge and early mastery of FM sound chips.❞ redbullmusicacademy.com
