Namco Taiko Blog (1 November 2012)- CreoFUGA interviews part 3

The third lot of CreoFUGA user-created songs were made downloadable on Taiko PSP DX from October 25th, 2012 onwards and Namco interviewed the 5th and 6th winners today!

The two people here today are Harunaba, the creator of Hanaoto Urahyoushi, and Ryuwitty, who made Kaze no Kuni no Ryu to Kishi. Both creators feel extremely happy and proud that their creations can be played by everyone on Taiko no Tatsujin.

Harunaba's song...Hanaoto is a Japanese-style song, composed with Taiko no Tatsujin in mind and tries to evoke the beauty of old Japan. Ryuwitty has an 'ethnic, exotic' image in mind when he made his song, and as mentioned before, during the contest the title of the song was completely different (昔むかし、遠き国の王様は) and he wanted lyrics for it. Later he deleted the lyrics.

Both composers found syncing the music for use in a rhythm game to be quite difficult. Getting the rhythm right is definitely a hard thing to do!

Harunaba listens to lots of music, but two bands in particular (Spitz, a J-Pop group and Meshuggah, a Swedish death metal group) stand out. Ryuwitty is a fan of classical music, especially Ravel and Debussy. You can follow both on Twitter, where they talk about daily life, food and music. The last paragraph is their message to Taiko players, to have lots of fun playing their songs.

There was another contest for composing GUMI songs on CreoFUGA, and both of these two have also won that contest, making for a double-sweep! Epic stuff! It's an even greater achievement when you consider than only four finalists were picked from there, as compared to eight here.

Now, for the last two winners! Hope we get to see their songs soon!
