Tamayo Kawamoto began her video game music career as one of the original composers at Capcom in 1984. In the early 1990s she left Capcom and began working at Taito. Kawamoto is currently in a band called Betta Flash.

Audio Development


Tamayo had to enter the music in a custom music macro language, using hexadecimal numbers for notation. The sound drivers were by Capcom's sound producer Yoshihiro Sakaguchi.
