Hello my name is Kobayashi Yamato. I am a musician and ex-games music composer. In 1998 when sega had just released the dreamcast, I was working with a small growing games developer called SpecterSoft.
We had just been granted a generous fund from a larger games development company to work on our first commercial game, "Pleasant Specter".

"Pleasant Specter" was an attempt to push boundaries in gaming and open up a more philosophical approach to the gaming world.

Our deadline for the game was set for February 2000. As we had a very limited staff, it was my job to compose all the sound effects and music for the game. The main initiative of the game was to collect "savvy" cards off your enemies and to breath life in to dying creatures that an evil higher power had taken advantage of in order to control the world.
As the funder of our project had many problems with this (viewing it as anti capitalist), we were demanded to re-write the game story. But because we believed in our game so dearly, we lied and told them we would change it just so we could keep our project a float. 4 months later our project was shut down and discarded as we had failed to follow through with the changes our head developers had requested. Our funding was cut and we were told never to return to this company for future projects as we were unwilling to communicate on a "professional level"...
July 2014. Whilst moving house from Shimokitazawa, Tokyo to Okinawa I came across my old hard drive with some of the finished compositions and half finished compositions I had written for the game.
Since my recent discovery of this new music genre my friends son has introduced me to known as "vaporwave". I feel that the aesthetic and moral of "Pleasant Specter" fits this new movement comfortably and that it brings a certain heir of nostalgia that I believe some people would appreciate. After so many years, I feel that now is the perfect time to share this with everyone.
For anyone who discovers this, I would like to invite you to sample any of these tracks if you so desire so long as your credit me and send me links to your edited versions of my compositions.
It would be a great compliment.

Thank you for reading,

Kobayashi Yamato




我々のプロジェクトの出資者は、これに多くの問題(反資本主義としてそれを見て)持っていたとして、我々は再書き込みゲームのストーリーが求められた。我々は心から私たちのゲームを信じので、しかし、私たちは嘘をついただけですので、我々は我々のプロジェクトのフロートを保つことができる我々はそれを変更し、それらを語った。 4カ月後に私たちのプロジェクトは、シャットダウンし、私たちは私たちの頭の開発者が要求した変化とフォロースルーに失敗していたとして廃棄した。当社の資金調達を切断したと我々は、我々は「プロのレベル」での通信に消極的だったように、将来のプロジェクトのためにこの会社に戻ることはなかっ言われました···
この新しい音楽ジャンルの私の最近の発見以来、私の友人の息子は「vaporwave」として知られているように私を導入しています。私は "プレザントスペクター」の美しさと道徳が快適に、この新しい動きにフィットし、それは私が何人かの人々に感謝と考えている懐かしの特定の相続人をもたらすことと感じています。非常に多くの年後、私は今、みんなでこれを共有するには絶好のタイミングであることを感じています。



Update 7/ 28/ 2014 :
One of my colleagues has just discovered that I put my music online and has emailed me an image showcasing some of his really early design ideas for Pleasant Specter. He has requested that I do not credit his name as he is still working in the game industry and fears this could potentially jeopardise his career.
Thank you old friend!
