Famously known for his numerous compositions for movies soundtrack, Japanese anime, video games or television programs, the tokyoïte composer Kenji Kawai signs with the soundtrack of the cult manga Ghost in the Shell by Masamune Shirow, one of his greatest hits. Originally published on paper in October 1991 by the Japanese journal weekly devoted to manga, Young Magazine, it was in November 1995 that Ghost In The Shell was suitable for the first time on screen by Mamoru Oshii. And it's Kenji Kawai who was chosen to recreate the futuristic cyber-punk atmosphere that emanates from this manga, into music. Assisted by the percussionist Yuhki Sugawara, Kenji Kawai reached the summit of his art by delivering captivating music, halfway between ambient electronics, traditional Japanese music and Buddhist ritual singings. The synthetic and ethereal soundscapes, almost disturbing, blend perfectly with gongs, bells or female choirs filled with echoes. The listener is plunged into a dreamlike fable sound with a striking and evocative poetry that is reminiscent of the soundtrack of a certain Akira. Reissued for the first time on vinyl, this rare edition is limited to 500 copies and comes with an A3 poster format.
