Brief Profile

Noriyuki Kamikura is extensively trained in game audio techniques, including classical composition, arrangements for small ensemble, conducting, synthesizer programming, keyboard performance, and recording engineering. After engaging in occasional works for TV, musical groups, and solo musicians, he joined Basiscape in 2006. He initially led the orchestration of the anime project Romeo X Juliet performed by the Eminence Symphony Orchestra.

Kamikura's first game project was the rock score Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi: Gekitou! Ragnarok Hachikengou. He has subsequently had small roles in Grim Grimoire, Final Fantasy XII Revenant Wings, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, Deltora Quest, and L no Kisetsu 2. Kamikura was also an arranger for Eminence's piano quintet event Destiny - Destiny, a jazz fusion remixer on Darius Remix, and the electric guitarist on Death Smiles.

In recent months, Kamikura has produced some major contributions to RPG scores. He has contributed to the warm orchestral / synthetic blends of Opoona, the rich spiritual Celtic pieces of Elminage, and the atmospheric genre-hopping score to Coded Soul. He has also orchestrated Sakimoto's scores to Studio Gonzo's game-to-anime adaptation The Tower of Druaga: The Aegis of Uruk and Sega's PlayStation 3 epic Valkyria Chronicles.
