Princess Mononoke - Movie Soundtrack
By: AdamR
Date: 4 Aug 2009
For some fans, Joe Hisaishi's soundtrack to Princess Mononoke is considered his magnum opus. It contains every major piece of music you can ask for in soundtracks - solemn cues, action cues, character themes, and an odd track here or there to set the mood on the screen ("Kodamas"). The soundtrack is offered as a high-definition audio cd (HDCD) and improves the quality over the standard Redbook files, which often will distort on bass notes or lines in the strings.

Two main character themes are present in the soundtrack - Ashitaka's theme ("The Legend of Ashitaka", "The Young Man from the East", and "The Legend of Ashitaka Theme (End Credits)") and also the theme for Princess Mononoke ("Princess Mononoke Theme Song" in instrumental and vocal versions). Additionally, the main antagonist, Lady Eboshi is given her own theme music as we are shown on screen the deeper side of Lady Eboshi and what her goals are in the ironworks. These are the main themes of the album, and the most recognized cues of the album.

Hisaishi builds action music around the demon gods from the forest who are doing what they can to stop human development in wild areas ("The Demon God" and the "Demon Power") using rapid drum and percussion rhythms to imitate running, rushing, and attacks. The soft side of the score is centered around the Requiem themes (there are three different variations of this) as Ashitaka decides what side and stance he will take in the dilemma of the mountains.

Finally, perhaps the most popular cue on the album, is Hisaishi's masterful work on the piano, blending themes for Ashitaka and for Princess Mononoke in "Ashitaka and San". Simple, and basic, it represents the feelings both individuals came to once they realized that humans and the gods can live together.

For anyone interested in Hisaishi, this is an amazing place to start with him, and branch out into other works such as Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, or My Neighbor Totoro.
