1) JAXX is the name Patrick Jacks has used in the video game arrangement community, He was inspired by video game composers such as: Hiroki Kikuta, Yasunori Mitsuda, Yuzo Koshiro , Nobuo Uematsu and others. He was fascinated with the idea of recreating nostalgic retro game music that he grew up with. He started out in the scene using tracker programs, messing around with midi arrangements and what not then started putting out arrangements in a punk/rock style, which he was more familiar with and is most known for in the scene. He took off from the scene back in 2002 to spend more of his time searching out spiritual truths making few contributions over the years, mainly to VGMix and lately to the Dwelling of Duels.
