So is Kentaro Kobayashi this guy's real name and Koyama the alias, or is Koyama his real name and Kobayashi the alias? I browsed though his albums, and from what I saw, whenever his name was in English it was "Kentaro Kobayashi," but whenever it was in Japanese it was 小山健太郎, which is Koyama. The most recently-used name in our scans is Koyama on SEGA Rally 2006 Original Sound Track, and GMCL's default name is Koyama (the English says "Kobayashi," but the kanji and hiragana are both "Koyama," so I think he changed one of the names at some point and forgot to change the other), so I'm more inclined to say that's the real name, but I'm really not familiar with this guy aside from the original Cyber Troopers Virtual-On OST.

This was discussed on slightlydark a while back, the thread is still there:

It seems he changed his name during his career.

Well, him changing his name would explain it, but I'm still not convinced that it was Koyama and he changed it to Kobayashi, instead of vice versa. His very latest release is the Virtual-On OST rerelease from October of last year, and Sega's page for the album gives Koyama in a comple of places, but not Kobayashi. Unfortunately, we don't have any scans of the inside, but if he did change to Kobayashi, it doesn't explain why Koyama is still being used for his latest releases.
