Norihiko Hibino--best known for his work on the Metal Gear Solid series and Bayonetta--founded Hibino Sound Therapy Lab in 2008 with the goal of exploring the therapeutic applications of music. Shortly thereafter, he co-created Prescription for Sleep, the top-selling sleep aid application for iOS that combines peaceful visuals and live music arranged for maximum relaxation and induction of sleep.
In further pursuit of his goal to bring therapeutic music to the masses, Hibino picked up his saxophone and teamed up with pianist AYAKI to form the duo, GENTLE LOVE. The group has performed at numerous benefits throughout Japan in the wake of the devastating earthquake and tsunami of 2011, and has recorded a number of hit therapeutic music albums that have been bundled with sleeping supplements throughout Asia.
Now GENTLE LOVE explores Hibino's history in the videogame industry with Prescription for Sleep: Game Music Lullabies, performing soulful arrangements of some of the best and most memorable moments that videogames have to offer, all with the goal of creating a soothing atmosphere to lull you into a state of relaxation and sleep.
Classics like Super Mario 64, Donkey Kong Country, Final Fantasy, and Chrono Cross are featured alongside some "sleeper" hits that just may surprise you.
Join Scarlet Moon Records on this exploration of a new frontier in game music!
