Hmm I've been hooked on Japanese/Anime soundtracks lately for some reason...
Hey, dude, have you heard the Ghost in the Shell
soundtrack? There are three tracks on there, in particular, that I find absolutely outstanding (the first, fifth, and tenth tracks). There's even a point, where this low whooshy synthesizer...well, on most speaker systems, it's absolute noise, it wasn't until I heard it on a good full-range system that I realized they were sort of a four-note motif leading into the main melody...great test music...
Do you know, or do you know anyone who knows, Japanese? I can't really tell you the names of the tracks, because they didn't really translate them...I think it says Ghost in the Shell, but I'm not sure, I would like a deeper explanatory translation...I'm kind of toying with the idea of getting those words as a tattoo in Japanese, but I would like a better idea of what they mean before I do, you know?
Also, do you know anything else that Kenji Kawai did?
Or does anyone else reading this, for that matter (both questions)?
