We might be amazed by the fact that Ludwig van Beethoven was deaf. How can a musician, a composer, lack what we would imagine to be his most important sense?
Actually it is not his first involvement in the game project. Before, he was a sound engineer freelancer in Nintendo; he helped the main composer, Koji Kondo, to make 2 - 3 songs in Super Mario Galaxy the first version. He was also involved in making background music for Final Fantasy VII by SQUARESOFT. The Super Mario Galaxy 2 is still in the development stage and planned to be launched to the market in 2010 as a Nintendo Wii game.
In a daily life, he is a blogger and a columnist on the game section on Detik.net. By using his laptop ASUS EEE PC under Xandros Linux operating system he shows his passion to blog, write, or compose a game music. That laptop was also equipped by a screen-reader, an application program to make his job– as a blind person, easier.
