Unique Note has updated their website to include demo samples. The quicktime player on the demo page isn't working for me, so I looked at the html source and found the direct mp3 links. I've included guesses about the composers in parentheses.

I always knew Aoki had a great voice, but that main theme part 2 sample from Earth Seeker is incredible. She's easily one of the best VGM vocalists I've ever heard. She doesn't have the stereotypical Japanese female sound at all.

As for the main theme, it's great--although the first part is very similar to the main theme from The Mask of Zorro. The village theme is excellent as well. It's a shame Earth Seeker bombed, as that significantly hurts chances for an OST release.

Unique Note has updated their works list, finally revealing one of several currently unnamed 2012 projects. This one is a PSN garden/farm/misc. simulator called Oshaberi Farm.

I'm sure you'll agree that it's Aoki who handled the music, at least what we hear in this video. Aoki had previously done music for a gardening simulator called Shiki-tei, also a PSN title, back in 2008.

There's a few other videos, but the recording quality is poor and some kid is talking over the game sound: http://tinyurl.com/b2nhlvk

The remaining 2012 Unique Note titles yet to be revealed include 4 smartphone games and a Pachinko Slot game. Sadly, these are the only unknown titles to have the "music composition" tag; the others are arrangement or vocal.

I was really hoping the PS3 one would be an RPG. ;.;

Yay. I'm not especially surprised, but congratulations to them all the same.
