Kow Otani, composer of the unbeatable Shadow of the Colossus soundtrack.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCFggNJtESA - 'The End of the Battle' says everything about the remorse that is felt after felling a colossus in that game.

Motoi Sakuraba is another incredible composer (he did the soundtrack to Dark Souls.) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xr54gJZk_nM

On the subject of a non-Japanese composer, Gary Schyman and his orchestral works for Dante's Inferno were epic - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svEQqnnVL2I

I might have to check out Danny Baranowski. I don't actually know the names of any indie game composers, so it'll be very interesting to see his works. Thank you, and take care!

Thanks for the links to the songs on Youtube. Those are some pretty epic and cinematic sounding songs. I will need much better software before I'm able to make those kinds of songs. Oh, and probably a degree in music and about 10 or 15 years or so, lol! Those are really good. Thanks for sharing :)

Oh, and I hope you make some brilliant videogame music on this site. The best of luck to you! :D

Thanks!

Koji Kondo- Mario, Zelda, and various other Nintendo series. Incredibly melodic and catchy.

Nobuo Uematsu- Final Fantasy series. Huge range of style, very iconic music.

Yoko Kanno- She does everything. Classical, rock, jazz, blues, pop, you name it. Some of the most musically creative work that I've heard, both in video games and anime.

Jeremy Soule- The Elderscrolls series, Secret of Evermore, and many others. This guy makes incredibly beautiful, epic, and cinematic music.

I could name many, many others, but there are a few of my favorites.

SoulEye, Akira Yamaoka, _ghost, Terry S Taylor, Ben Crossbones, micAmic...
