OMG!!! OMG!!! Joe Hisaishi is in TOWN!! At least mine!!! hahaha It was announced that he will be holding an Asian tour starting in November leaving his trail of wonderous music in Taiwan, China, Hong Kong and Japan!!! I can’t wait! I am SOOOOO going to his concert! I have already set a reminder in my iphone to remind me to go buy them!!! I will get myself some nice tickets!!!!! Who’s into this!?! I’m sorry to my fellow Singaporeans…he’s not stopping by… :(
For those who don’t know (which I hope aren’t many), he’s the amazing person behind music that blew you away in Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Totoro, Castle in the Sky, Nausicca…all the Ghibli productions and a whole heap of movies too like Departures. His music never fails to blow me away…That’s it!! I will work with his music in the background!!! *BEAM*
To fans of the Ghibli works, this name should be all too familiar! I am a follower of Hayao Miyazaki productions, in particular: Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Castle in the Sky. There are many others but these three are just outstanding!! Not only is the animation creative and vivid, but the background ensemble of music just really adds the final touches. Actually, it takes the entire experience to an all new level!
Joe Hisaishi is the magical creator of the music!! I recently discovered that he is soon to hold a 25th anniversary performance of music from Ghibli studio works as well as a show with New Japan Philharmonic World Dream Orchestra!!! If ONLY I had KNOWN EARLIER!!! I would DEFINITELY plan a week long trip to see BOTH!!
Please! If you are in Japan or can take the time off, you HAVE to see it!! I would so go if only I didn’t already have a holiday trip the week before!! I was tempted and even checked for availability of tickets – there are still some available!! Oh well…I will have to wait for 2009 performance…. =(
