Yamaoka has been music director since Silent Hills 1, and game producer since Silent Hills 3. He also composed for games like beatmaniaIIDX, Pro Evolution Soccer and Contra. He’s also the executive producer of Silent Hills movie, and advanced in composing for areas beyond game. As a composer, Yamaoka is known for his complicated thoughts over music and human nature in his musics. In 2006 January, Yamaoka released his first non-OST original album iFUTURELIST.

The best game music remixing website GMRemix (Game Music Remix) in China is also invited for the awarding ceremony and follow-up music party.
