    Associated composer for Mamoru Oshii and Hideo Nakata, but whose relentlessly prolific output has lead him to work internationally with many others (he's especially popular in France), including even Joe Dante and Ken Russell. A hypertalented multi-instrumentalist who composes, orchestrates, arranges, and plays damn near everything on his scores, aside from the string section and brass. His striking, ample melodies have a lush pop sensibility that recalls Pino Donaggio; unlike Donaggio, though, his horror scores are legitimately frightening.

    Also a big fan of cats and big hair.

    Seeing as it's not been released even now, this might be the most we ever get from this score cry1

    So i've listened to the tunes posted in the thread and i like them all (especially the stray dogs one) so now i'll need to dive deeper into the world of kenji kawai.
