This composer already had a nice list of credits to his name barely after leaving high school -- yet he passed away at the young age of 22.

Just thinking about it makes me depressed =/

I loved his work on the x68k version of Gemini Wing.

I had no idea that he had passed away

I found this site with large amounts of information on the composer, his works and his death. Pictures too. Quite touching. Unfortunately I can't decipher a lot of it with just Google Translate, hopefully someone else can add the appropriate information to his profile, along with a photograph.

ouch, kidney failure at 22 doesn't happen very often.
Sad when people go so early in life...

Yeah, that's the site I linked to in my first post. It's maintained by his brother, I think.

Okay, that link was well hidden! I didn't know he died at such young age. He composed some remarkable music for sure, one of my favourites.
