Clas­si­cal Gastly

EDGE - - THIRD GENERATION -

It’s rare for a pro­ducer to still have a hand in com­pos­ing, but and 175-track OST will fea­ture sev­eral con­tri­bu­tions from Ma­suda. His ap­proach to mak­ing mu­sic hasn’t, he says, changed much over the years. “But what re­ally has changed is the hard­ware avail­able to us,” he notes. “As this hard­ware has evolved, we’ve moved from only hav­ing a small range of four or five sounds to be­ing able to cre­ate al­most any sounds and tones we like. We now have to pro­duce sound with the same level of qual­ity you’d ex­pect when pro­duc­ing a CD. So I sup­pose you could say my ap­proach to com­pos­ing has changed from that per­spec­tive.” Ma­suda’s per­sonal mu­si­cal in­flu­ences are an eclec­tic mix of the con­tem­po­rary and the clas­si­cal; he cites Ul­travox, The Hu­man League, Tan­ger­ine Dream, Stravin­sky and Shostakovich among his in­spi­ra­tions.
