PO Soon? - Geinoh Yamashirogumi - Akira Symphonic Suite

Recommended Posts

My work SO gave me the heads up on this today:








Fans of Katsuhiro Ôtomo’s seminal 1988 anime will be treated to the first ever official reissue of the film’s sublime, super rare ‘Akira Symphonic Suite’ score. Milan Records announced their plans to reissue Geinoh Yamashirogumi’s acclaimed score via Twitter, and although a release date is yet to be confirmed we’re already setting a few pennies aside for when this one eventually drops.

Rather unusually for a film score, ‘Akira Symphonic Suite’ was composed and recorded ahead of production, with the animation team structuring the story around the music. An alternate soundtrack comprised of original music, dialogue and sound-effects from the film was also reeased, but it’s Yamashirogumi’s score that remains the lifeblood of this iconic dystopian sci-fi.

‘Akira Symphonic Suite’ LP tracklist:
01. Kaneda
02. Tetsuo
03. Ohjifuchi
04. Exodus From The Underground Fortress
05. Requiem
