Women music artists?

Recommended Posts

Txai gets super creds for Yuki Iwai. MMX (collab) and MMX2 (sole) composer of AWESOME!

Also one of my favorite OSTs is Mega Man V by Mari Yamaguchi (also did Breath of Fire).

Also did anyone mention Yoko Shimomura? (j/k) She composed for Super Mario RPG and Parasite Eve AS WELL AS A FEW OTHER AWESOME THINGS! :)

Michiru Yamane, I'm gonna echo, if not ONLY for Castlevania: SOTN (that enough is alone), but her massive body of awesome work of awesome *_*

Also my bio by Rexy says I have one remix, that's gonna change soon :P

Critical Thread Failure. The OP reeks of "hey guys do my research for me," when if he had merely followed some wiki links he could see who is reported as man or woman, let's not even include google or just going through the list on this very website. That said, there have been a lot of good mentions, here's one more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinuyo_Yamashita.

See, this is what we should be responding to instead of throwing in random female composers. :razz: And here I come with a comprehensive list of every female OC Remixer that has contributed -

I hope this helps out in regards to the OP. If I'm missing anything, please clue us in!

I am also a VG remixer, among other things. I did something for the official FFIX album and I'm working on stuff for the Legend of Mana and Secret of Mana albums, and doing vocals for other people's remixes. I sing, play harp, piano, Irish bouzouki, recorder, glockenspiel, and other random stuff.

As for female video game composers... Kumi Tanioka is awesome for composing the soundtrack to Crystal Chronicles. Such an inspired work of art!

this thread is now about posting links to awesome music by yoko shimomura


Wow, I had now idea that Yoko Shimomura did Mario RPG! That shatters my entire universe!

Yoko Kanno was the first one that came to mind for me for composers even though, yeah, she is more anime than games. But that Darker Than Black OST is GODLIKE!


Also, I might be crazy, or I just might have never actually known what was going on, but didn't pixietricks do some stuff on here?
