Alchemist you wanted a Hisaishi discussion thread well here it is!

The man is a genius! I started collecting his music last year when I got an Amazon gift certificate for my birthday. I first started hearing his ST's while watching movies from my favourite anime director Hayao Miyazaki. Soon after learning that Hisaihi did most of Studio Ghibili's music I found this site! The best damn ST site on the planet (Jeric=God)!

Incidentally, I think some of my ST's are pirated after reading your post. I think my Piano Stories are from SM. Usually pirate versions are so crappy that it is easy to spot, but all of my CD's are beautiful, from the jacket all the way to the audio quality.

I don't think it is possible to get any of the old Piano Stories CD's now anyway. They are out of print. So pirate is the only way to go.

Well Alchemist or any of you other Hisaishi nuts please join in!

Thank you TreeBob! That's surely a nice post Very Happy

I don't really know where to start, so let's start at the beginning Smile

I discovered Hisaishi simultaneously with japanese animation. I must say that I live in a little city in the french alps called Annecy that is organizing an animated film festival for more than forty years now. Back in 1999, I wasn't that much interested by this event as I wasn't an 'animation' fan anyway. You might think I'm going off topic, but well, let's see...

So, it was in 1999. I went to the opening ceremony of the festival because a friend of mine told me of a movie with a weird name, 'Mononoke Hime' or something like that. Frankly, I didn't know what he was talking about, but it was very difficult to get in the theater so I thought it could be something good.

It was an unforgettable experience! I never saw such a movie before: the story was breath taking, and among plenty of other qualities I found the landscapes beautiful.

And I just loved the music. I wanted to buy the CD right after the end of the show, but I didn't find it. The composer, an unknown guy called Joe Hisaishi, was japanese and it was quite difficult to get japanese items back then. I had to wait something like ten months before the soundtrack was released in france while the movie hit the screens.

As a side note, I remember that I found similarities between Horner's Braveheart and Hisaishi's Mononoke Hime. We could do a SST combo by queuing 'The Young Man from the East' and 'For the Love of a Princess'. Would be really great Wink Anyway...

I'm a Hisaishi fan since then. I like Hisaishi's music more and more as I'm listening it. I might post about my favorite albums later...

... as I could write forever on that topic but i have to stop for now Razz

Just a remark, I think you can still find genuine Piano Stories albums. My favorites websites for buying these *very* expensives cds are Nippon Export, YesAsia and CDJapan

That's it for now, might continue later Very Happy

I bought Piano Stories 4 from Yes Asia. i really like that site. The music is cheap there. I really like how you can select region country and currency.

My favourite CD presntly is Howl's Moving Castle. My 3 year old sons fav is Princess Mononoke (he listens to it every night when going to sleep).

Now that the Discovery shuttle is back from its great human adventure, I'd like to share a little anecdote.

Here is an excerpt of the NASA Return to Flight website:

Quote:


Friday, July 29, 2005 – 11:45 p.m. CDT
Mission Control Center, Houston, Texas
STATUS REPORT: STS-114-08

...

Discovery’s crew was awakened at 10:43 p.m. CDT by the Japanese song "Sanpo," sung by a group of children, including Noguchi's. The Station crew was awakened at 11:09 p.m. CDT by a tone onboard.

...


Actually, this is the Totoro opening song! Here is some more detailed information:

Quote:

On July 29th the crew of the Space Shuttle Discovery woke to the theme music from My Neighbour Totoro. Preparing for his spacewalk that day, astronaut Soichi Noguchi (40) played a recording of his daughters singing "Sanpo" (Walk), the theme song to Hayao Miyazaki's My Neighbor Totoro. The recording was made at the Houston Japanese Language School and featured school girls, including Noguchi's daughters, singing the chorus.

Isn't it cool? Very Happy

Very Happy I can understand that (you'd certainly prefer a goold old Sadame ^^). But you have to know this song is an anthem for nearly all the nursery schools in Japan, so the choice of this song was not really surprising!

Oh, and I read that this morning. Great!

Quote:

If you like to actually hear the space shuttle wake-up call with
Totoro's "Sanpo" song, NASA thoughtfully provides a MP3 or WAV file:

ndxpage1.html

Specifically, Day 5:

Enjoy, and congratulations to the crew of the Discovery for her safe
return home!
