Here is an interview of Kenji Kawai (soundtrack like Ghost in the Shell, Avalon, Patlabor, Ring, IP Man, Ranma1/2, Higashi no Eden, other Mamoru Oshii stuff)
Be sure to turn the subs on.

Is this one also edited by Tumblr like the one with Miyazaki?

I always recognize his music. It's very distinctive.

Girl Friend Beta is a great recent work of his. Joker Game also has his music.

Could never get into his music, despite him working on some really famous series. He's like the opposite extreme as Yuki Kajura.

Maison ikkoku's tracks that revolve around melancholy or "walking home while the sun goes out" kinda feeling are gripping.

I suppose. I mean, his music isn't bad by any means. But it seems very melancholy as a whole. Even when he tries to do upbeat or comical themes.

One soundtrack I feel that was bad as a whole however was Blue Seed.

Oh, come on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNZ0TLBsiOc
He can do upbeat just fine.

Comical? although you might not get this as the character is very shifty/comical

The fucking egg episode

I absolutely do not understand why they got him of all people to do the Barakamon soundtrack. Why the hell was I listening to a thriller movie's music in SoL show?
>>
>>140967381
Int he interview he said he likes "warm" music. And likes to teach the expression "Treasure every meeting, for it only occurs once" Which actually fits Barakamon perfectly.
>>
>>140966592

That's not really what I consider upbeat. That sounds like a triumphant battle theme.

DAT HAIR.

His philosophy is one thing and the appropriateness of his tracks in the scene is another. As a whole his soundtrack for the series was good but there were a lot of strange choices for the scenes. There was that one particular track that sounded like it was ripped straight out of Gundam 00 that kept coming up in scenes that were nowhere near as tense as it sounded.
>>
>>140968672
I don`t think the person composing the music is necessarily the person picking which scenes it will be played in.
>>
Is this guy yankee or something? Why the blond hair, so shamefur.
>>
>>140969030

Japanese people dye their hair blonde to purposefully go against society.
