Hello, Lusipurr fans. My name is The Legendary Zoltan and I am thrilled to be the new Music Director at Lusipurr.com. I have been listening to The Starlight Megaphone for less than a year, I think, and I have enjoyed it so much that I even went back and listened to all the Megaphones Ahoy! Podcast episodes. They are hilarious and highly recommended, if you like chaos.

I have been into games since the Atari 2600. When I was a kid, I saved my weekly three-dollar allowance for sixty-seven weeks and was able to buy myself a Super Nintendo for my twelfth birthday. I beat Super Mario World in three days and was quite proud of myself. In high school, I was introduced to Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger and loved them both. I was also getting into anime and playing video game music on my newly-acquired guitar at this time. But what really turned me into the otaku I am today was a little game called Xenogears. The music, the mecha, and the masterfully written story blew my mind like nothing before it. From that game forward, I was hooked on JRPGs. Now I play exclusively PlayStation 3 games. The small number of great JRPGs available does have me concerned but on the other hand, it still feels like there are more than I could ever play because of how little time I have to play games these days.

Now that you have heard my gaming history, how about some music? I have many favorites so I will just mention a few of the more famous ones. I started out listening to classic game soundtracks such as Mega Man 2 and Castlevania IV. I would always sing along when I played those games. My first favorite composer was Chrono Trigger‘s Yasunori Mitsuda. After playing Xenogears, I was constantly telling others that he is my favorite musician. I also loved Nobuo Uematsu and Yoko Shimomura, as I still do today. Other PlayStation era game soundtracks that I love include Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy IX, and Final Fantasy Tactics. I would say that the Final Fantasy Tactics soundtrack suits me the most because it is mainly battle music. In the PS2 era I fell in love with Daisuke Ishiwatari’s Guilty Gear soundtracks, Hitoshi Sakimoto’s Final Fantasy XII OST, and Koichi Sugiyama’s Dragon Quest VIII orchestrations.

I have big plans to be executed during my (hopefully long) stay at Lusipurr.com. Having listened to every single episode of Lusipurr’s podcasts, I feel I’ve come to know a little bit of who the Lusipurr character is and what he stands for and I respect it. I can see he has a vision for this site and that vision is exciting to me. Thus, I would like to be a part of it. There has never been any official Lusipurr music released so my goal is to compose a library of tracks that are largely exclusive to Lusipurr.com. I have confidence that the current readership will enjoy what I have to offer.

  1. I’ve heard some of your work on the CatFancy podcast. Looking forward to listening to what you eventually produce here as well.

  2. I’m really very excited about this. Great gaming history too.

  3. Thanks, guys. There will not be any comedy from me on this site. Just music.

    I cut out many of my favorites because Lusipurr and Julian were mean to me. It is a lovely beginning to my new career.
