Akira Yamaoka, the composer of Silent Hill’s trademark sounds, has left Konami after 16 years, says Aeropause.

The news comes from a “pretty reliable source” at Konami Japan.

Yamaoka composed the music for the entire Silent Hill series apart from Silent Hill: Play Novel for GBA and “Esperandote” in the first game, which was written by Rika Muranaka.
