by Dylan Siegler


There is a band called Gentle Love, which is comprised of Metal Gear Solid composer Norihiko Hibino and PersonaQ musician AYAKI, who perform saxophone and piano for the band respectively. Over the past few years, the band has been working on their Prescription for Sleep series, in which the band makes jazzy, lullaby versions of video game music. Next week, on October 10, the latest entry in the Prescription for Sleep series, Fight for Your Dreams, will be released.
