Not to be confused with Kei Maruyama.

Keiichi Maruyama is a Japanese composer and sound designer who worked at Toshiba EMI.

Audio Development

It is unknown exactly how Keiichi created game music, but it is thought that he wrote the music on sheet music paper or used some kind of tangible media (tape recordings, etc.) which was given to the programmers of the games to implement into the game. Because Keiichi worked for Toshiba EMI, a company that did not develop games, it is unlikely he was experienced with audio programming.
