Joe Hisashi often manages to bring out the story of the movie through his scores; we can feel the story weaving into each second of the soundtrack. It’s rich, symphonic harmonies and calming effect on the human mind makes it an ideal choice for music, even to those who dislike instrumental music.
With Studio Ghibli now on Netflix, it is now an ideal time to experience the music with the original animated art. Some movies with amazing soundtracks to watch are:
- Spirited Away
- Princess Mononoke (not on Netflix)
- Laputa Castle in the Sky
When the soundtracks are combined with the animation, it reaches a whole new level of sound. Even after the movie has ended, we are still captivated by the colourful scenes and haunting melodies.
