Final Fantasy X is the first main series title which was not solely composed by Nobuo Uematsu; he enlisted the help of Junya Nakano and Masashi Hamauzu, both of whom have worked as proteges under him. Nakano’s work includes Front Mission: Gun Hazard (which he composed alongside Uematsu and Hamauzu) and Final Fantasy IV: The After Years; Hamauzu provided the bass vocals in “One Winged Angel” for Final Fantasy VII, and is the main composer for the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy.
For the three final bosses for Final Fantasy X, the three composed their own themes for each battle. Uematsu composed “Otherworld” (vocals by David Muir) for the battle with Braska’s Final Aeon (also played during the opening FMV).
Nakano composed “A Contest of Aeons” for the series of battles against Yuna’s summons, which contains motifs from “Hymn of the Fayth” as well as the normal boss theme “Enemy Attack,” the latter also composed by Nakano).
For the last fight against Yu Yevon, Hamauzu composed “Decisive Battle,” which also contains motifs from “Hymn of the Fayth” (co-composed by him and Uematsu) and the Thunder Plains’ location theme (also composed by him).
