Ishimoto on composing for Dissidia

June 26th, 2011 by Tony Garsow

Gamespot sat down with Square-Enix composer Takeharu Ishimoto to ask him about the Dissidia games’ soundtracks and the process by which they were created. Also in attendance was Free Dominguez, part of the band Kidneythieves who worked with Ishimoto to create Dissidia 012: Final Fantasy’s song “God in Fire” in which she sings the vocals.

Ishimoto commented on the arrangement process of many songs that were already created and beloved by fans, citing that they did little to change the original melody of the songs, but instead changed many of the instruments at play as well as modifying the rythym of the track to better suit Dissidia’s frenetic battle pacing. One of the major challenges of the games was travelling abroad to work with artists such as Kidneythieves and Your Favorite Enemies as well as recording in Prague.
