Kingdom Hearts III Composer Yoshitaka Suzuki Reveals Creative Process For Davy Jones’ Tracks
One of the additional composers for Kingdom Hearts III, Yoshitaka Suzuki, recently shared some comments about the cutscene tracks he composed for The Caribbean, specifically correlating to Davy Jones. Suzuki composed three tracks, “Hearts of Courage,” “The Victorious,” and a track unavailable in the official soundtrack. These songs were purposefully made with the intention of crafting a unique motif for Davy Jones due to the original music from Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End being unusable.
Hanz Zimmer, a well-known composer who worked on the aforementioned film, was an integral source of inspiration for Suzuki, even being one of his favorite composers. Additionally, Suzuki explained how aside from expected directives by Kingdom Hearts III’s music director, he had the freedom to compose what he desired. Moreover, Tetsuya Nomura had no role in the creative process, granting a moderate sense of insight regarding what the compositional process for Kingdom Hearts III was like.
You can view Yoshitaka Suzuki’s quote tweet regarding the matter below via a fan (@Titan_Trainer) highlighting the relevant tracks:
Thanks for the interesting edits! I laughed a lot!
I couldn't use the original song in Kingdom Hearts, so I composed the Pirates of the Caribbean cutscene.
And I made the motif of Davy Jones with my sensibility. Is It was fun? https://t.co/EnxH3seet5
