Fumito Tamayama (born on November 27, 1967) is a Japanese sound designer and composer. He attended Nihon University High School. He started working for Graphic Research in April 1989. There, he created the sound drivers for their Famicom games. He stayed there until he quit in March of 1991. A month after, Tamayama started working for Tamusofuto, Inc. and composed music there. In July of 1995, he founded the music group Studio Cliche, which composed music for some Game Boy Advance and PlayStation 1 and 2 games. The company wasn't doing too good and later was disbanded sometime after 2003. He then went on to worked for Fleur, Co., a company which produced an eroge game and they later was disbanded as well. Tamayama currently works for Traffic Content, Ltd., still composing music and sound for video games.

Tamayama's most memorable work was for the games he composed for the Sega Genesis including Decap Attack, Socket, and Battle Mania Daiginjō.

In the unreleased NES game Secret Ties, he is credited as "Dosukoi (Bakkin) Tamayama". Fumito says this was used as a joke, the word "kintama" in Japanese translates to "testicles".

Music Composition


I used MML programming.


Like his Genesis music, Fumito programmed his music in MML using the sound driver that he and Yasuyuki Hamada created. He wrote the music on MS-DOS using TSR program. Then he used MIDI with a YM2203 chip (OPN) to play back his compositions.


These games have been verified to have been composed by Tamayama via his old website: [1].
