Geinoh Yamashirogumi's exceptional score for cult Japanese anime classic Akira has long been on the "want-list" of both fans and soundtrack collectors. It's been out of print since it first appeared in 1988, with original CD and vinyl copies changing hands for vast sums online in recent times. This reissue presents the composer's "Symphonic Suite" - unique because it was created as a standalone piece before the movie went into production, with scenes altered to fit the music - in all its' acclaimed glory. Musically, Yamashirogumi's compositions are hard to pigeonhole, sitting somewhere between semi-synthesized percussive minimalism, new age inspired ambient, layered vocal improvisations and electronic experimental jazz. From start to finish, it's utterly beguiling and almost mesmerizing in its construction.
