Tsukasa Tawada

Tsukasa Tawada (Japanese: 多和田吏 Tawada Tsukasa; born March 24, 1965) is a composer best known for his work as a musician on the Pokémon games developed by Genius Sonority. When coming up with the music for Pokémon Colosseum, Tawada recalled the idea of composing a dry, yet cool-sounding theme that would be scattered throughout various songs in the game.[1] He also claims to enjoy the darker atmosphere offered by Colosseum when compared to other titles in the series.[2]
