Music composers & publicity designer

An extra scene from Hashi: Hideki Yamamoto(He) is actually Kazuna Nakama(She). 


Hideki:

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that "Hideki Yamamoto"(me) did not make the music for the film "Hashi", my friend Kazuna Nakama did, but she(and her parents) had concerns about using her identity(name) online, so she asked me to correspond with you in order to retain her anonymity. However, now that she is older and going into college, she would like to put the music from Hashi in her portfolio and resume. Kazuna has something to say:
Kazuna:
Hi Sherman Ong! I just wanted to say that I love your film and it's very artistic and beautiful! Thank you for using my music in your film, and I wanted to just tell you that I have an email address of my own that I use now(used to use this one, taelmx) it's kazunanakama@gmail.com
 
If you feel comfortable with changing the credit on the blog page under "Hideki Yamamoto" to Kazuna Nakama, it would greatly help me with job opportunities and college, and I'm sorry I had to be anonymous when I made this music. Oh, and I almost forgot to show you some links that you may want to look at:http://www.kubikdragon.com/kazunanakama/

Hideki Yamamoto is an RPG(Role Playing Game) soundtrack composer, and also makes music for films. He has made music for an RPG called Rising Tide, and is currently working on three more game projects. He started working in the game and film industry in 2005, and is currently studying production animation in Chicago, US. He has been involved in film projects, game projects, and professional photo shoots. In 2008, he is placed 11th out of 53 in Square Sound's Nobuo Uematsu arrangement competition. He played in a local band and earned seven gold medals in solo contests in the US. He will be majoring in Game Design and works as a Game Editor to earn his keep. In 2009, he sent Sherman Ong, the director of Hashi, an email to say that the real composer is a girl and her name is Kazuna Nakama. http://www.kubikdragon.com/kazunanakama/

"That a Malaysian systems programmer can end up writing folk tunes with a strong Leonard Cohen stamp is a testament to the global reach of modern music. And "greyhound" makes the most of his far-off influences, turning out driving ditties topped with a cool tenor." ~ Editor's review, http://music.download.com

Bernard Ng was born in the town of Seremban, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. Throughout his youth he moved around the country a lot with his family. He first began listening to music seriously after exposure to U2's Achtung Baby album, and, ever since then, has loved searching for, finding, and (occasionally) creating moving, meaningful music in his free time. Aside from U2, he periodically returns to the music of Bob Dylan, Rufus Wainwright, Jeff Buckley, Johnny Cash, and Alison Krauss. However, he loves finding new music and latches on to many of the eclectic little gems that come his way, which are too many to list. Bernard graduated with Bachelors and Masters degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA. He currently works in Knoxville as a web programmer. http://greyhoundbus.blogspot.com
