Release Date: September 15th, 2017
The symphonic music to AKIRA was composed by Dr. Shoji Yamashiro, head of the beloved Japanese musical collective GeinohYamashirogumi, and performed by the group. Remastered using the most advanced audio techniques available, this release of the unforgettable score of AKIRA is peerless in quality and audio fidelity. The vinyl release features audio so pristine that it invokes the “hypersonic effect”, a physiological change in the brain that occurs when listening to sounds above the audible human range (40kHz+). The result is a comfortable, relaxed feeling induced by the hi-frequency audio.
In addition to the CD release, the vinyl version is a double black vinyl 180g gatefold LP. The discs are packaged in high quality printed sleeves displaying artwork from the film. A download card includes a lengthy commentary by composer Dr. Yamashiro on topics ranging from AKIRA to GeinohYamashirogumi to his work in advanced brain studies is also included.
