Siliconera: Saori Kobayashi experimented with several songs as the main theme of Panzer Dragoon Saga. One day, she had spent so much time thinking about it when a coworker invited her to go out drinking. The coworker advised her to be ready to leave in 30 minutes, and the song had to be done that day, so she ended up rushing through and writing it within those 30 minutes. And in that short time an icon song was made.
Kobayashi recently finished her work on Crimson Dragon, a spiritual sequel of sorts to the Panzer Dragoon series, and Shattered Moon, which is part of In Flux.
