I AM STILL IN SHOCK OVER THIS: Square Enix Axes Sound Team

;____________________;

Granted, Yoko Shimomura, Nobuo Uematsu, and Yasunori Mitsuda haven't been part of the internal team at Square for a while, but OMG.  Square outsourcing its music and maybe its sound too?  Yes, Square Enix Music Online, I am one of those outraged followers.

I'm kind of having a terrible double-punch of sympathy for my fellow warriors, and that teenage heartbreak of having your favourite band break up.  I mean, I'd only just started following Ishimoto's work!  (He did this absolutely heart-breaking piece for Crisis Core, and this haunting piece for Dissidia, as well as the rather epic Chaos battle vocal track I seriously thought they'd brought in an outside group for that one at first, and not to mention those fantastic arrangements in The World Ends With You!  adslfjlasjdflksajdf I could max out the character limit going on about his portfolio)  Granted, none of these guys should have any trouble whatsoever finding new work, but sucks to be made redudant after working with a company for 12-15 years.  :/  And if Square can't afford to keep an internal sound team who the hell can?

Going to spend the rest of evening listening to the work of each of them in turn as a salute to their many years of hard work.  /overly dramatic.

Dinosaurs will make me feel better:





OH GOD.

;_; I can't believe they're going to outsource their music when they have such amazing composers right there *cries*

... the dinosaur pics make me feel better, though.

Well, I wouldn't be particularly surprised if they still contract out work to them. After all, Yoko Shimomura still does work for them pretty regularly. Although Nobuo Uematsu and Yasunori Mitsuda, not so much. :(

Thank goodness for dinosaurs. Even extinct, they make our lives better.

This is really sad.
I cant believe Square would just get rid of
all those talented composers >__<

I especially love Ishimoto's works. (The crisis core ones make me cry)

I hope that the musicians would be able to find another place to share their music.

(lol at the dinosaurs. They must have gotten black materia or something)

I'm pretty sure they won't have any problems finding work, but still has to be quite a shock after working there for over ten years to suddenly find yourself adrift like that. I can only hope this doesn't affect the stellar sound and music quality of Square's games, though! ;___;

XD No Holy to stop it this time! *Imagining a Sephiroth dinosaur wanting to become God*

Sucks. But I can't say much, I listen to OC remixes. My music tastes are questionable to say the least.

And the dinosaur thing reminds me of this

Joss Whedon does have some rather likeable characters in his shows.

WHAT. WHAT. ;____;

I wonder if the outsourced stuff will be as good? Sometimes change is good, but I've loved most of Square's music up to now...

Hahahaha, SUMMON THE METEORS.
