Artist statement by Kobayashi Yamato:

"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. 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. never to return to this company for future projects as we were unwilling to communicate on a "professional level"...
July 2014. While 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". 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."
