Hiroki Kikuta is one of the more eccentric video game music composers. His discography has not been very long, but it has been punctuated by extremely notable works, especially the music of ''VideoGame/SecretOfMana''. His early game music work was for SquareSoft, but after he left, he branched out into game design, founding the company Sacnoth (later renamed Nautilus) which developed the ''ShadowHearts'' series. In addition to game music, Kikuta has also composed some anime soundtracks. While at Sacnoth, Kikuta fiercely resisted ExecutiveMeddling from publishers -- this earned him something of an AuteurLicense reputation, whether or not he actually deserves it.
