Founded in 2004, Dagmusic is honored to be working together with some of Japan's most prestigious companies including Capcom, Konami Entertainment, Square Enix, Kojima Productions, Koei Tecmo, Bandai Namco Entertainment, Grasshopper Manufacture and Sega.
We offer Japanese game clients foreign composers who can produce unique works or artists with talents that are hard to find in Japan. We make it possible for them to create an exceptional, world class product that stands out among other games.
Since 2016 we have been working more with non-Japanese clients, localizing Western games into Japanese, the most notable being the F1 series. We cast all the Japanese voice actors, negotiating with different agency talents, then make sure the script is adapted correctly, and manage the recording process.
Dagmusic's Founder and President, Donna Burke, is famous in the industry for her singing work on such titles as the Metal Gear series, God Eater, and Tokyo Ghoul √A. She is also a renowned actor, working on numerous titles including Silent Hill 2 and 3, ARMS, Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy Crystal chronicles and Magical Lyrical Nanoha.
Dagmusic provides services including musical and lyrical composition/arrangement for many famous titles as well as narrators, voice actors, and singers.

Japan Voice Talent & Localisation
Casting, contract negotiation and booking of narrators and voice actors.
Recording, script adaption and editing/post-production.
In 2016, Dagmusic started JVT (Japan Voice Talent) for clients in Tokyo and overseas who needed high quality Japanese Voice Actors.
It is crucial for the success of foreign games and movies released in Japan that popular voice artists are cast and many hit shows, movies and games have done badly in Japan because the script has not been correctly adapted and/or the voice actors did not suit the roles.
We help you cast the perfect Japanese narrators, voice actors, and directors, and provide a bilingual studio attendant so that youcan listen remotely and give direction on the spot.
