Undoubtedly the best games composer of all time! His music contributed so much to the atmosphere and emotion of Final Fantasy VII and VIII which are still up there as the best RPGs ever. We should also give credit to the fact that he produced such good tunes using the simple chips of the NES/SNES era, though it's great to hear them getting a full orchestral treatment due to their popularity. It's testament to how good his tunes are that hundreds of hours later, you'll still hum along to the classics whilst you play!

Sign me up! :grin:

Uematsu got me started, OCremix kept me going, now I'm into all sorts of music that many people don't realize exists or that they pass over!

This reminds me, I need to check for the next torrent of OC remixes!

When I was reading the post on FB, a bunch of Distant Worlds music and FF tracks (mainly 8 for some reason) kept playing in my media player until I closed the window. It was awesome, since that music is epic.

Mr. Uematsu is the reason I started to appreciate video game music as much as I do. Since then, I've come to enjoy the work of many other composers, but his work will always stand out as being the first I saw as a video game -soundtrack-, and not merely something playing in the background of a video game.

:o

I was so sad when I couldn't make it to NYC Distant Worlds this past spring. I would have loved to hear Gilgamesh battle theme in person! I am a visual artist and not a musician; nevertheless, Nobuo Uematsu's music has been a significant influence in what I do.

The score for Final Fantasy 7 still moves me to this day, his arrangements really touch my soul. And the fact that he is cool enough to make heavy metal arrangements of his compositions just makes him that much more awesome!

His PS1 Final Fantasy scores pretty much define my childhood. I always tear up every time I hear the world map song from FF7. It's really bizarre to believe that once upon a time the only thing that mattered in my world was his music. I didn't even really know of any other musicians until I was like, 8 or 10.

So if I ever met Uematsu I'd probably cream my pants.

I'm not the biggest Uematsu fan in the world, yet I enjoy his compositions. I'm a fan of EVERY video game composer / remixer, who's letting a warm feeling in my heart, and so is Uematsu. For the sake of VGM!

I missed the one that came to Canada, Vancouver. :(

DO WANT TO GO. And I'm Youtube pals and stuff with OCR since forever!

Man, the Distant Worlds arrangements are quite excellent, but hearing them in concert and meeting the composer himself would be that much more awesome.
