Brief Profile

After receiving an extensive musical education and assisted Toshio Iwai and Ryuichi Sakamoto, Mitsuhiro Kaneda joined the company Opus. He initially programmed two scores and then composed Fishing Live Online, Pro Fishing Challenge and Red Ninja: End of Honor. His resume favoured his recruitment by Basiscape in the latter half of 2004. He soon developed a reputation for fusing different instruments and styles in innovative ways on several arranged albums.

As a composer, Kaneda initially worked on Fullmetal Alchemist: Dream Carnival, Battle B-Daman, Zoids: Full Metal Crash, and Battle Stadium D.O.N, and several arranged albums. He also engaged in a relationship with Manabu Namiki on ESPGaluda II, Metal Slug 6, and the four oriental-influenced rock scores to the PSP's BLEACH Heat the Soul series. On behalf of the latter, he DJed at Extra: Hyper Game Music Event. On Wizardry Gaiden: Prisoner of the Battles, Kaneda reflected his stylistic breadth.

In the last year, Kaneda has worked with other Basiscape members on projects such as Grim Grimoire, Odin Sphere, Final Fantasy XII Revenant Wings, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, and Opoona. He took major roles on the whimsical percussive score for Deltora Quest: The Seven Jewels, Celtic-inspired Elminage, atmospheric genre-hopping Coded Soul, and sentimental if temperamental L no Kisetsu 2. He is anticipated to be highly active in further 2008 projects.
