AKIRA YAMAOKA – Interview in Spain at Play Fest 2012

On the last weekend of July 2012 I travelled all the way to the town of Úbeda, Jaén, to interview the amazing Akira Yamaoka, composer of the “Silent Hill” sound tracks in person.
He was there to take part in the Play Fest event, an event that gathered lots of important personalities from the world of soundtracks between July 23rd and 29th 2012. Yamaoka also took part in an orchestrated concert that will also be covered in another article.

Akira is widely known for his soundtrack work in the “Silent Hill” games, as well as his amazing guitar skills, and I just had to take advantage of this chance to ask some questions. Many fans and readers of musicJAPANplus submitted their questions, and the following are the chosen ones.
