»Tokyo Sonata«

Noble Records/A-Musik

It opens with a taste of some japanese neo realist movie soundtrack pre »Hiroshima Mon Amour« or post »Germany Year Zero« (depending on distribution in the origins) and follows with a little too many loops, shakuachis, harps and other »Geisha-Girl« arrangements. It ain’t as special and accurate as George Delerue, nor as transformed as Sakamoto, but whatever, it may work well with the film, I don’t know. File under: soundtracks.
