Product Description

Limited edition LP version. Includes 7" and extensive 24-page liner notes; Japanese obi; Sleeve with silver gilt printing.

We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want Records present the &#-1279;rst ever official vinyl pressing of the soundtrack for Mamoru Oshii's critically acclaimed and all around legendary science &#-1279;ction anime &#-1279;lm Ghost In The Shell (1995), adapted from Masamune Shirow's groundbreaking manga series of the same name. The haunting score is composed by Kenji Kawai, one of Japan's most celebrated soundtrack composers alongside Joe Hisaishi and Ryuichi Sakamoto, whose work includes Hideo Nakata's Ring (1998) and Ring 2 (1999), Death Note (2006), Hong Kong &#-1279;lms Seven Swords by Tsui Hark (2005) and Ip Man by Wilson Yip (2008), and countless others. Kawai's compositions see ancient harmonies and percussions uncannily mesh with synthesized sounds of the modern world to convey a sumptuous balance between folklore tradition and futuristic outlook.

For its iconic main theme "Making Of Cyborg", Kawai had a choir chant a wedding song in ancient Japanese following Bulgarian folk harmonies, setting the standard for a timeless and unparalleled soundtrack that admirably echoes the &#-1279;lm's musings on the nature of humanity in a technologically advanced world. Ghost In The Shell is widely considered one of the best anime &#-1279;lms of all time and its in&#-1278;uence has been felt in the work of numerous movie directors, including James Cameron's Avatar (2009), the Wachowskis's The Matrix (1999), and Steven Spielberg's AI: Arti&#-1279;cial Intelligence (2001). For fans of anime, manga, movie soundtracks, science &#-1279;ction, ambient, folklore, Japan, Akira (1988), arti&#-1279;cial intelligence, Midori Takada.

Cut from the original master reels at Emil Berliner Studios (formerly the in-house recording department of renowned classical record label Deutsche Grammophon), this version is a limited collector's edition which comes housed in a sleeve with silver gilt printing and includes the LP, a bonus 7", Japanese obi, and extensive 24-page liner notes.
