Type :  

  Summary  

山岡 晃 is a Japanese video game composer, sound designer, sound director, and video game producer who worked for Konami since 1993 until his resignation in 2009. He is best known for creating the music in the Silent Hill series; he also worked as a sound director and producer on the series as well as serving as a composer and producer of the Silent Hill feature-length film and its sequel.

  Biography  

 Early life
Yamaoka attended Tokyo Art College, where he studied product design and interior design.

 Career

On December 2, 2009, it was announced that Yamaoka was leaving his long term employer Konami.
On February 3, 2010, it was announced that Yamaoka has joined Grasshopper Manufacture and will be working with Goichi Suda and Shinji Mikami on their upcoming psychological-action thriller game, Shadows of the Damned, in partnership with Electronic Arts.

 Personal life
Before working as a video game composer, Yamaoka initially sought a career as a designer, but instead became a musician after studying product design at Tokyo Art College.

In 1993 he joined Konami to work on the game Sparkster: Rocket Knight Adventures 2. When Konami began searching for a musician to compose Silent Hill's score, Yamaoka volunteered because he thought he was the only one capable of making the soundtrack.

Yamaoka stated in a 2009 interview that his favorite game creator is Suda 51 and his favorite video game is No More Heroes.
