Default Masashi Kageyama (#1084)

Since he performed alto sax on Rom Cassette Disc In SUNSOFT Remix, I think there's probably a profile of Masashi Kageyama on this page: http://www.mate-music.co.jp/sax.htm. Doesn't specifically mention game music anywhere I can see, but it does say he spent ten years during his 20s and 30s as a composer.

In one interview, he's introduced as a game music composer turned photographer, and that profiles pages also states he's now a photographer.

 そんな影山氏は1990年代後半に入ると作曲活動から身を引き、今はフォトグラファーに転身。国内外のジャ ズミュージシャンのライブフォトを多く手掛ける一方、2010年には銀座4丁目交差点にあるリコー三愛ビル 、リングキューブ袖看板に作品が展示されるなど、気鋭のフォトグラファーとして活躍している。

[22:08:41] <GlitterBerri> I have some information on him and I wanted to give it to someone who cared
[22:12:05] <GlitterBerri> (...) I translated that Cyzo interview about him awhile back, if you're interested in giving it a read.
[22:12:19] <GlitterBerri> But more importantly, I'm in contact with him and he gave me a list of the games he remembers working on
[22:14:35] <GlitterBerri> • Simple 1500 Series Vol. 8: The Solitaire (PS1)
[22:14:36] <GlitterBerri> • Rocky Hopper (PS1)
[22:14:36] <GlitterBerri> • Robot Construction (x6800)
[22:14:36] <GlitterBerri> • Motor Squad (Windows)
[22:14:36] <GlitterBerri> • Benkei Gaiden (PCE)
[22:14:36] <GlitterBerri> • Appare Tonosama (SFC)
[22:14:37] <GlitterBerri> • Outlive (PCE)
[22:14:37] <GlitterBerri> • 2 Batmans (Cancelled mid-development, another version was released)
[22:14:37] <GlitterBerri> • Gimmick (FC)
[22:16:32] <GlitterBerri> He also said
[22:16:38] <GlitterBerri> "I believe there are several other titles that I composed for independently.
[22:16:38] <GlitterBerri> In addition, I was subcontracted by several design companies back then (not the companies that actually sold the games), and I composed what they told me to, but I don't know what titles the songs were used in. (I have a feeling that they were distributed over a number of titles."
[22:17:36] <GlitterBerri> "As over 20 years have passed since then, the composition data was recorded on floppy disks and DAT, which can't even be viewed anymore. I'd know it was my work if I heard it, though. Solitaire is selling on Amazon. A soundtrack was released for Purumui Purumui, but it's not being produced anymore. That means the only soundtracks I have on hand to listen to are Purumui Purumui, Solitaire, and Gimmick. Incidentally, the music on the
[22:17:36] <GlitterBerri> Gimmick soundtrack released last year was borrowed from Sakai, the programmer. I also listened to the original song on YouTube in order to recreate the sheet music for the ending theme."
[22:17:49] <GlitterBerri> "To tell you the truth, I'd love to have an accurate list, myself... It's a relic from another age, and I've stopped composing for a living (though I've taken it back up as a hobby, recently), and there are a lot of companies that have disappeared off the face of the earth, so I don't really know. I'm really sorry about the vagueness of the list."
[22:18:04] <GlitterBerri> And, finally, "I've composed 800 game songs, if you include short jingles. The other 200 were for events, background music to videos, etc. The 1000 song figure you cited were written over a period of 10 years, while I was working as a composer."
[22:21:43] <GlitterBerri> He also said that he's going to start composing as a hobby again after the new year and he's getting a space set up for it
[22:22:24] <GlitterBerri> So he might have new work online in the future

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why well documented game music (as well as game) preservation matters. Sorry for randomly jumping in with my agenda.
