Birth of INSPION Inc.
We are a team of accomplished composers and sound designers with over 10 years of experience in the video games industry. Our vision is to unite creators from various major game companies and break the boundaries of genre and competition. Our rich professional music production background empowers us to utilize a wide range of artistic and technological skills to go beyond the inspiration of sound. This is what we call INSPION.
We have always tried to take on challenges with a reasonable strategy and a clear vision in mind. With a sound yet passionate management, INSPION has hired competent creators in professional game audio and grown to a team of over 10 people since its inception. To our great honor, as soon as we started, we were solicited to work on a number of wonderful projects, and were able to collect achievements one by one while balancing out creativity and business imperatives. We are deeply thankful to all industry seniors and co-workers who believed in the birth of INSPION and warmly welcomed us from the very start.
Future of INSPION
To me, as an entrepreneur, corporate management is essentially about having a very strong, long term vision. I want all people involved to thrive and enjoy their work, with the aim to return this happiness back to society. Business is merely a way to make this happen.
The most important thing for us to continue developing our activities is "trust". For our sound production studio this translates to"always good sound, forever good sound." What defines good music in video game development is quite broad. Of course sound quality on its own is very important, but also communication or experience are crucial elements that greatly impact our work. In order to keep delivering high quality work, we will continue to hire people with extensive game audio production experience and keep building up and sharing skills. While shaping INSPION’s corporate culture with consistent management policy, we commit to making the best sound possible, the main purpose of INSPION’s creation.
I regard profit as a measure of relevance. We will always keep contributing to game development by building the best team, further refine our skills and gather new technology. While nurturing this creative yet economic activity is our main mission, pursuing the necessary profit is the validation of our business. We will never stop striving hard to create music with whole-hearted devotion.
Games keep surprising us by breaking paradigms with new innovative concepts. They raise controversy, create new cultures and value systems, thus playing a significant role in the ongoing transformation of the world. As a part of it, we shall also contribute our fair share to the expansion of the video game industry and the development of the world.
Takeshi Kuramochi, President & CEO
A healthy mind in a healthy body. Enjoying healthy, delicious food with people dear to us is of utmost importance. We cherish our families and friends and never let our doubts get in the way of our own happiness. We take pride in being unique sound creators ever pursuing the best sound possible. We have an insatiable yearn for research, effort and results and enjoy competition.
Friends are individually close to each other and teams always operate for their goals first. Friends watch out for each other, but even teams can strengthen their relationships by showing compassion to their colleagues. Seeking companionship enriches your own life.
We don’t create music for the sole purpose of running a business or making profit; they are just the means to an end. Profit helps us measure our performance, we are first and foremost a company that wants people being happy creating things as a meaning of existence.
Reliable audio skills and a sense of balance fostered by extensive industry experience
High adaptability to fit production needs through flexible teamwork and professional creators
Some projects focus on pure quality, others demand cost and speed. Besides sound creation itself, we also have all-in-one offers where we work on sound direction or sound integration. In order to respond to such diverse needs, it is necessary to build up unrestricted and flexible teamwork, requiring high-level skills and professionalism from each artist. INSPION made this possible by teaming up with creators with careers of over 10 years working at major game companies. You can trust us not only with music and sound effect production, but also with assigning sound directors, overall sound organizing,overall audio direction for mobile, and sound planning etc. In cases where game directors who are not familiar with music are required to perform multiple tasks, we can take over and even assign INSPION team members to sound direction and make sure sound quality stays top-notch.
If your sole objective is streamlining your process, it might seem convenient to separate work per responsibility, such as communication, sales, or production. INSPION is different. Here, each creator is familiar with multiple areas of the production pipeline, and can contribute to that pipeline by simultaneously taking on various tasks like producing, directing or communicating with clients. At INSPION we are trying to evolve with incoming projects. We aim to build a production environment that always favors the growth of our creators.
