Nobuo Uematsu

A prolific and versatile composer of popular video game and anime scores, most notably for the ubiquitous Final Fantasy game series, Nobuo Uematsu was born and raised in Kochi, Japan. A self-taught piano player, he graduated from Kanagawa University and played keyboards in local bands, eventually finding work as a composer for radio commercials by sending out his music demos. He moved into the video game medium in the mid-'80s when a friend offered work at the company then known as Squaresoft (later Square Enix). There, he composed music for dozens of games, including the first Final Fantasy installment, released in 1987. He went on to write or co-write music for the international blockbuster series through 2002's Final Fantasy XI. During that time, he released an album of original electronic keyboard music in 1994 titled Phantasmagoria, and many other game scores including 1995's Chrono Trigger (co-written with Yasunori Mitsuda). In his break from the Final Fantasy series after the 11th game, he composed a film score for 2003's Ah! My Goddess: The Movie, and founded his own companies, Smile Please in 2004 and Dog Ear Records Co., Ltd. in 2006. He also provided music for over a dozen video games including 2006's Blue Dragon, and television music for the 2007 anime series based on the Blue Dragon game. Uematsu composed music for the anime television series Guin Saga in 2009, and finally returned to the Final Fantasy franchise as the main composer for Final Fantasy XIV in 2010. He continued a dedicated schedule of game scoring into the 2010s, including but not limited to 2012's Fantasy Life, 2013's Hometown Story and Granblue Fantasy (both with Tsutomu Narita), and 2014's Terra Battle. ~ Marcy Donelson

DON'T READ THIS. YOU WILL BE KISSED ON THE NEAREST POSSIBLE FRIDAY BY THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE. TOMORROW WILL BE THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. NOW YOU'VE STARTED READING THIS. DON'T STOP THIS IS SO FREAKY. But if you read this and ignore it, then you will have very bad luck PUT THIS ON 15 SONGS IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN YOUR DONE PRESS THE SPACE BAR AND YOUR CRUSH'S NAME WILL APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS ON THE SCREEN THIS IS SO CREAPY BECAUSE IT ACTUALLY WORKS.

Nobuo Uematsu is the greatest composer. Such dedication and originality. His name will stick with me for the entirety of my life. His devotion to the FF franchise has been more than fulfilling and exhilarating to listen to his scores.

I really miss the days of video game soundtracks being so masterfully composed that they were as much a selling point of the game as the graphics, story, and gameplay were.

Extremely talented and accomplished composer.

Went to see Distant Worlds at the Boston Symphony Orchestra a couple years ago and he was there and even did some music himself. Felt amazing to hear all the Final Fantasy music there and with the video they were playing. They ended with One Winged Angel, I would say it was by far the best show I have ever seen. Will be going again if it comes back there. Would love to meet him next time though.
