Those who have immersed themselves in cyberpunk’s works and dystopian territories have not indifferent to the aesthetics or music of these worlds. Such is the case of Ghost in the Shell from 1995, directed by Mamoru Oshiil, based on the homonymous work of Masamune Shirow that inspired successful proposals like The Matrix.
Kenji Kawai is responsible for the disturbing music of Ghost in The Shell. One track that was etched in the minds of many is “Making The Cyborg”, a composition where female choirs evoke perfectly the dystopia of Shirow’s world in those scenes where we could appreciate how Major is create, showing us the scope of the technology, a beautiful landscape as disturbing.
According to information from WRWTFWWR:
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 timeless and unparalleled soundtrack that admirably echoes the film’s musings on the nature of humanity in a Technologically advanced world.”
For all fans of this anime, and taking advantage of the arrival of the film starring by Scarlett Johansson, will be released the original full Ghost In The Shell Soundtrack on vinyl through We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want Records.
