Behind the Drums: Oogami Masako

Oogami Masako (大上昌子 / おおがみまさこ) is an active composer and vocalist who used to work for Namco as part of their sound designer team, but quit the game development and is now a freelance music composer, though she still actively contributes to projects by Namco, with Taiko no Tatsujin being one of them. Her backstory is currently unknown, except that she has also composed music for several other games like the Tekken series.

She has made a wide variety of songs since starting to compose for Taiko in 2005, making a good half of the console Taiko theme songs and many other memorable Namco Originals, even contributing her voice to some of them. She started the ac. series of songs, which has two distinct styles: her cute, bouncy music and Masubuchi Yuuji's more serious rock music (ac11 and ac12.5). It's hard to pinpoint a specific pattern or preferred genre in Masako's music, but one thing's for sure; her songs are all of good quality, original and memorable.
