“I’d love for [Akira Yamaoka] to be involved. Unfortunately, he left Konami, and can’t do the music for the new games [which is] a Japanese business politics sort of thing. We’d like for him to be there, but he’s not. So we took seriously finding a replacement, because you can’t throw in just any old sound guy. So we found Dan Licht, who does the music on Dexter. He was actually our top choice, so we were fortunate that he was willing to jump in.” – Silent Hill: Downpour producer Tomm Hullet to GameFront.
