Akira: Original Soundtrack
The music comes to life using traditional Japanese sounds accompanied by the Geinoh Yamashirogumi, a nationally recognized chorus in Japan consisting of over 200 amateur singers. The music was actually produced before the images of Akira and was incorporated into the film later with the help of computer editing. The soundtrack, which strives to recreate the atmosphere of Akira in the mind, employs various techniques in this experimental composition. The thing that sets this soundtrack apart from the rest is the personalization of each song with the characters of Akira. \"Tetsuo\" is a beautifully constructed transitional piece and one of the most important themes on the soundtrack because it represents the awakening of Tetsuo\'s psychic powers. The drum beat and soft voices of \"Kaneda\" profess a youthful exuberance that is very uplifting and energetic.

The CD comes with a 12 page booklet that contains translated letters from Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo about the production of the soundtrack, while composer Shoji Yamashiro of the Geinoh Yamashirogumi and Kayoko Ohinata write about the music composition. The more I listen to the soundtrack, the more I appreciate the complexity and beauty of the music. I encourage people to give this album a shot in hopes that, like me, they will hear something new each time they press the play button.
