Joe Hisaishi
Tori No Hito - Nausicaä Of The Valley Of Wind: Image Album

Before Studio Ghibli made Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind, composer Joe Hisaishi created a soundtrack based on the manga that inspired the film. In the same way that a film studio will create concept artwork to get a better sense of how the film might look, this is a concept album (thought obviously not in the traditional sense of the phrase). A golden opportunity to get a glimpse at Studio Ghibli's creative process.

Haruka Na Chi E - Nausicaä Of The Valley Of Wind: Soundtrack

A reissue of the soundtrack for Studio Ghibli's science-fiction epic Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind. This was composer Joe Hisaishi's first collaboration with the legendary Hayao Miyazaki. The soundtrack is heavily symphonic, but also features some electro-rock and has some Indian classical influences. The combination is perfectly matched to the world created by Miyazaki and his team.

Kaze No Densetsu - Nausicaä Of The Valley Of Wind: Symphony Version

Kaze No Densetsu contains music which is not just Joe Hisaishi’s soundtrack to the Miyazaki film Nausicaa Of The Valley Of Wind, but a special symphonic version, rearranged for an orchestra of 50! Hisaishi composed, arranged and produced this performance, so you know that this perfectly represents his musical vision.

Hikouseki No Nazo - Castle In The Sky: Soundtrack

Castle In The Sky is a 1986 film by Hayao Miyazaki, particularly notable for being the first animation ever to come out of Studio Ghibli. The soundtrack, by Joe Hisaishi, is presented here in the same versions heard in the film, and whether the material is new to you or deeply known and loved, the power and quality of this music cannot be denied. From Tokuma.

Taiju - Castle In The Sky: Symphony Version

Castle In The Sky is a 1986 film by Hayao Miyazaki, particularly notable for being the first animation ever to come out of Studio Ghibli. The soundtrack, by the prolific film composer Joe Hisaishi, has been adapted here for full symphony orchestra, offering maximum grandeur and cinematic weight. From Tokuma.

Joe Hisaishi
My Neighbor Totoro: Image Album

The image album for the painfully endearing Studio Ghibli classic, My Neighbor Totoro. What's an image album you ask? It's a kind of companion piece common in Japanese media, designed to flesh out its subject. Here composer Joe Hisaishi was tasked with "making songs which children really want and can sing out loud with their mouth widely opened". The result is 11 songs that capture the beautiful child-like energy of the film.

Joe Hisaishi
My Neighbor Totoro: Soundtrack

The soundtrack to the 1988 Miyazaki classic My Neighbor Totoro, composed by Joe Hisaishi. This LP is a Japanese import, and we aren’t going to pretend it is cheap, but the music is still flawlessly powerful thirty years later, and the presentation of the record (beautiful illustrations) is very fine indeed. On the Tokuma label.

Joe Hisaishi
My Neighbor Totoro: Sound Book

Studio Ghibli's My Neighbour Totoro is one of the most magical and mischievous films to come out of the legendary animation studio. The film depicts two sisters dealing with the challenges of life with the help of some adorable (and furry) friends. This Sound Book, by composer Joe Hisaishi, features songs from the score rerecorded on violin, guitar and flute, foregrounding the folksy warmth of the film.
