Scant details so far, but for Zuntata's twenty-fifth anniversary, they're going to be releasing some sort of album with the participation of eleven current and former members.



Kazuko Umino is one of the people who's provided a message for their anniversary page, so come on come on come on come on come on come on

I think they are 12 now.

They MUST be: Koshio, Tsuchiya, Nakayama Raiden, Yack, Mar, OGR, Karu, Shu, Dr. Haggy, Tamayo, and 2 more (?). I wonder who will be.

Seems like there are 15 guests now based on the sidebar. If I'm not mistaken, Guest 14 is Yuzo Koshiro. Guests 13 and 15 don't seem to be in our database. Not sure if they are composers or not.

The current 15 (guess more will come later) people listed on the side bar are actually those giving celebrating messages to the 25th anniversary of Zuntata, and thus non-composers are there. The album itself will feature only the former and current 12 members of Zuntana.

GIGAZINE just had a nice big panel interview with COZMO participants Katsuhisa Ishikawa, Hirokazu Koshio, Shohei Tsuchiya, Yasuhisa Watanabe, Yasuko Yamada, Norihiro Furukawa, Koji Sakurai, and Yukiharu Urita: http://gigazine.net/news/20121024-ta...5th-interview/.

Nice to see some recent pics of some of the more reclusive composers.

Heyo, ZUNTATA's 30th Anniversary is coming and they're preparing a new album to celebrate it in lieu of 25 Anniversary's Cozmo. The new album's title is "reZonance World", and it will feature three discs. Disc one contains arrangements of Taito game music by Hirokazu Koshio a.k.a COSIO (ex-ZUNTATA). Disc two contains the best songs of ZUNTATA voted by fans (including me) during June 25 to July 16 2017. Disc three and four contains music from various console and arcade titles from Taito, which includes:
- Darius Burst "The world of spirit" demo sound source (composed by Shohei Tsuchiya)
- EXIT BGM demo sound source (composed by Hideki Takahagi)
- RayTracer (sound credits to Horie, which is Yoshiro Horie)
- Champion Wrestler Jikkyou Raibu (composed by Yasuhisa Watanabe)
- Landmaker (composer unknown, sound credits to Yasuhisa Watanabe, Katsuhisa Ishikawa, Kouji (possibly misspelled Yukiharu) Urita and Norihiro Furukawa)
- Puzzle Bobble 4 (composed by Rimiko Horiuchi)
- Chase HQ 2 (composer unknown, Katsuhisa Ishikawa's Twitter mentions SoundWave which possibly Shizuo Aizawa or Mitsugu Suzuki https://twitter.com/babi_ztt/status/720987477209579520)
- Over G Fighters (composed by Mitsugu Suzuki)
- Capriccio Lift (composed by Norihiro Furukawa according to his Japanese Wikipedia entry)
- Cinematic Roulette (composer unknown)
- D3BOSS (composer unknown, this old magazine scan credits D3BOSS in Hiroshige Tonomura and Tamayo Kawamoto's works: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CoiQMPKUAAA90SM.jpg:large)
- IDYA (composer unknown, possibly compilation of IDYA games such as Vertexer (composed by Tamayo Kawamoto) and Cyber Sterra (composed by Kazuko Umino) )
- Live recording of ZUNTATA performance at Dengeki Game Music Live 2017

Also, the next ZUNTATA Night livestream will feature some familiar faces, which are former ZUNTATA members:
- Yasuhisa Watanabe (Yack)
- Norihiro Furukawa (Nakayama Raiden)
- Yasuko Yamada (YASKO)
- Kazuko Umino (karu.)
- Tamayo Kawamoto (TAMAYO)
- Shuichiro Nakazawa (SHU.)
- Yukiharu Urita (URI)
- Hirokazu Koshio (COSIO)
The website mentions that there will be others as well, hoping for Masahiko Takaki or Kazuyuki Ohnui to come as they're my favorites too. I'm sooooo excited!!
