Rhythm Encounter 19 – Schmoozin’ with Schafianski

Rhythm Encounter takes a break from the usual schmoozin’ to schmooze with a special guest: Sean Schafianski, the man behind the curtain that is Video Game Music Remastered. I was able to pronounce his name right on the first try. Do I get a special prize? Whether you can say it or not, listener, you’ll still want to tune in to the latest episode of Rhythm Encounter to hear our interview with Sean Schafianski, the talented arranger behind VGM Remastered. Sean’s covers of beloved games like Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, NieR, and more will delight your ears.

Note: We had to re-number our episodes several years after publishing. This was originally Episode 16, as reflected in the audio. Don’t worry, you’re not missing anything!

For over nine years (2010-2019), Derek was a major part of RPGFan. While he was foremost one of our star reviewers, he went on to take part in features, co-host – and then host – many episodes of Random Encounter, and grew to be one of the most respected and beloved RPGFan team members. He has since moved on to professional localization work. Ganbatte, Derek!
