Show Notes

Yamashita Takeo
Yamashita Takeo was the composer to many Japanese TV series in the 1960s and 1970s, including the animated Lupin III, Playgirl (a live action spy show), Giant Robo, and Gogol 13. His work is constantly remixed and covered by many artists, which the Yamatake Mania series is just one example. Fun Fact: The Gogol 13 remix samples the British film Get Carter.

Himuro Yoshiteru
Himuro Yoshiteru (sometimes listed as just Himuro) is a an electronic music musician and DJ who has been making music since the late 90s. His album Mild Fantasy Violence was released here in 2005 and was in rotation on Album 88. Tonight I played a set of music from his most recent album where does sound come from?

Fumio Hayasaka
Fumio Hayasaka was a composer of classical music and film scores. Occasionally I will play his scores for Rashomon and Seven Samurai on the show and I wanted to expand on that by playing some of his off screen compositions. Ancient Dances On the Left and On the Right was composed in 1941 and Overture in D Major in 1939. Here in the US they are available on the Naxos release Hayasaka: Piano Concerto, Ancient Dances On the Left and On the Right. Please note that the company decided to spell his first name "Humiwo" but it is still the same person.
