OSVOSTOTY 2012: Nominees for Composer of the Year
Posted By Jayson Napolitano On January 26, 2013 @ 11:00 am In Featured,Game Music | 1 Comment
2012 featured a host of emerging game composers. Some have come from television and film, and others from the ground up. The most important takeaway from all of this: these guys are good and we’re thrilled to have their music.
Read on for our list of nominees for Composer of the Year!
The cool electronic stylings of Wangan Midnight 4 that featured an international group of artists and a breakout in arrangement and instrumental music with Etrian Odyssey IV made it a good year for Yuzo Koshiro.
Entering the videogame scene strong with his fitting score for Silent Hill: Downpour, moving on to a more gamey sound with Silent Hill: Book of Memories, and closing with the blockbuster hit, Dishonored, it was a fine showing for Licht’s first year in the industry.

While Guild Wars 2 stands out as a huge title for 2012, Soule ventured into the unknown this year with tracks on Otomedius Excellent and World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandria, both wonderful surprises.
Wintory had amazed us before, but never like this. Journey will prove to be a historic game, and Wintory’s score is a big part of it. Bringing videogames to the Grammys for the first time is a huge accomplishment, and we also can’t forget his score for the iOS title, Horn.
