Composed by Dr. Shoji Yamashiro of the Geinoh Yamashirogumi collective, the score is particularly unique because it was created and recorded before the film was made. Akira’s animations were then crafted around the music, rather than the score being created and structured around an existing film, which is what usually happens. The impressive Yamashirogumi group featured hundreds of members, from all parts of Japanese society working to contribute on each soundtrack they were a part of. Remastered using the most advanced audio techniques available, this release of the unforgettable score of AKIRA is peerless in quality and audio fidelity.
