by Key-Glyph Thu Sep 18, 2014 12:51 am

If it hasn't been posted elsewhere, this series (which is being released in installments) has been really cool so far:

Thank you so much! This series is awesome! I've always wanted to know more about the composers and get their take on sound design.

fvgazi! What's up, dude?

I know -- isn't it so cool that we're getting to put faces and attitudes to the names? And hearing first-hand how certain composers were directly inspired by other composers? This stuff had the potential to be lost in history for all but the die-hards, so I'm really thankful for the up-front, accessible platform of an online documentary to help distribute it.

My favorite parts are when composers like Masashi Kageyama say that they're blown away that they have fans and are feeling motivated to make music again. Also Junko Ozawa's beloved waveform library. Not to mention those Japanese scenery segments!

I've been back to lurking for a year now. I rarely have time anymore to read/post. However, I love it when stuff like this is posted.

It's so amazing to me that Hirokazu Tanaka love PIL and reggae. Now I know why I like his tunes so much!

This has been a pretty interesting listen thus far. Already linked this to a couple of others that I'm sure might get some enjoyment from it. Really like the parts where they have a sit down with the various composers and we can get in their heads.
