Yoshitaka Hirota is a composer and arranger who fuses the sounds of electronic and ethnic instruments and freely connect East and West, old and new eras.
Hirota-san created sound effects for several Final Fantasy games, VI, VII, VIII, as well as "Parasite Eve." He has composed a multitude of original soundtracks for games such as the Shadow Hearts series, "Glory of Heracles: Proof of the Soul," "Ar Tonelico 3," and "Half Minute Hero." The knowledge gained in his work has also influenced his own personal musical style.
Again defying genre boundaries, Hirota-san collaborates with other artists on albums, stage performances, and more.
