Anime Central is proud to announce Masashi Hamauzu as a Guest of Honor at ACen 2012! Hamauzu-san is well known for composing the music for Final Fantasy XIII, and his newer project, IMERUAT, features Mina at vocals. Hamauzu-san will also be bringing Mina as a Special Guest.

Masahi Hamauzu
Born September 20, 1971 in Munich, Germany, Masashi Hamauzu graduated from Tokyo University of the Arts with a vocal music concentration. Raised in a household where both parents were musicians, from a young age he aspired to compose music. As a high school student he began a course of self-study, and following graduation from university he was hired by the music department of game developer Square Enix. There he contributed original compositions to the titles SaGa Frontier 2, Final Fantasy X, Unlimited SaGa, Sigma Harmonics and Final Fantasy XIII, among others. Since that time a diverse collection of music publications have made use of his knowledge and experience. In 2010 the composer established his own freelance music studio MONOMUSIK and his compositions and arrangements were featured in orchestral concerts outside Japan. In May of 2011, Hamauzu held a solo concert in Paris, France, then took part in "LEGENDS", an orchestral concert of music from games developed by Nintendo, performed by the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra in Sweden. He also joined the "Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY" concert series, making stops in Poland, Houston and Korea. In 2011, the composer established the music group "IMERUAT" with vocalist Mina, whose interest in her Ainu heritage has led her to study traditional forms of instrumentation. In May, the composer attended the "4th Film Music Festival" in Krakow, Poland, where he held his first IMERUAT live concert, followed by performances in Paris, Tokyo and the Hyogo Prefecture. IMERUAT released their self-titled maxi single in May of 2011 and full album "Black Ocean" in March of 2012. The scope of the composer’s activities now range from productions organized within the country to events performed overseas.

IMERUAT
IMERUAT is a prominent music group formed by composer Masashi Hamauzu and vocalist Mina. Known around the world for his compositions for popular video games, among them Final Fantasy XIII, Hamauzu has earned a reputation among contemporary Japanese musicians as a master of his craft. He is joined by Mina, whose training is reflected in her exceptional vocal style and research into her Ainu ancestry. Her knowledge of traditional instruments is informed by a deep respect for the culture of Japan’s indigenous peoples. After years of preparation, the duo's collaboration has culminated in the creation of the music series IMERUAT. (In the Ainu language, the name carries the meaning "Flash of light.") Already the unique combination of Hamauzu's progressive compositional style and Mina's vocals have impressed audiences during concerts taking place in Poland, France and Japan, garnering recognition among international audiences.

O__O I love Nobuo Uematsu much better (considering his To Zanarkand piece is what got me into piano to begin with) But DAMN! ;___; I'm not going to have time to do everything I want this year. For once. I want to be able to get his autograph. Why did all the cool things at ACEN have to be the year that I am the most poor T__T

as a Final Fantasy MMO Panelist, if Uematsu would come, I would probably cry on the spot. Distant Worlds (the end of CoP piece) is one of my favorite songs ever.

I used to go to sleep every night to the Hall of the Gods music. Sometimes, it's still the only thing that will soothe me to sleep.
