We would also like to extend our thanks to N. Born in Tokyo, after abandoning his studies in Tokai, Kenji Kawai began to study music in the prestigious Sobi academy. However he also abandoned his studies there after six months. He created the band Muse with friends, playing rock fusion and participating in several music competitions. Thanks to these competitions the members of the band developed great musical technique which led them to enter the music industry and the band decided to split.
After leaving Muse, Kenji Kawai started to compose music for advertising from the studio in his home. During the recording of music for a radio programme he met the musical director Naoko Asari who encouraged him to compose scores for Japanese animation anime. From that point he began to compose for legendary series in the world of animation such as Ranma , Devilman , Mobile Suite Gundam and Patlabor. To date he has composed more than soundtracks for this genre.
But his success as a composer is not only due to his work in animation. Kawai has also composed big pieces for films of different genres, among them titles as important as the terror films Ringu and Dark Water , the martial arts saga Yip Man and Qi Jian , as well as live action adaptations of world-renowned anime films such as Death Note and Gantz. His collaboration with the Japanese national television channel 'NHK' is also of note, resulting in more than twenty works, all of them for the main dramatic series produced for this channel.
In addition to all the work previously mentioned, he has collaborated with that man of genius Mamoru Oshii, the visionary Japanese film-maker for whom Kawai has composed the music for almost all his filmography, bringing his work to global attention. The collaboration that has received most attention is the music composed for the world-acclaimed saga Ghost in the Shell and for the full length feature films Avalon and The Sky Crawlers.
New York, 15th April - London, 18th November Kamen was an American composer, arranger, song writer and session musician. He worked briefly with Leonard Bernstein, after performing with his rock group in one of Bernstein's concerts for young people. Kamen wrote eleven ballets and diverse concert pieces, among which can be found a concert for saxophone which was performed by the musician David Sanborn. At 14 he performed as a soloist in a Vivaldi concert for Italian radio and later played with Solisti Veneti and Solisti di Milano.
In the summer of '59 Donaggio launched himself as a singer with one of Paul Anka's songs, immediately catching the public's attention. He immediately began to write songs, participating in the Sanremo Music Festival with 'Come Sinfonia'. De Palma entrusted the task of composing the soundtrack for Carrie to Donaggio, which brought huge international success to the Venetian musician.
In the mid '80s Donaggio took a decision that led him to compose principally in the country of his birth. His most recent work includes Do You Like Hitchcock? Once he had completed his saxophone studies, he started to study harmony, counterpoint, fugue, composition and orchestral conducting, which led him to get a grant to specialise in jazz abroad. That was how he came to study at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, and there he discovered that he could study another degree, one that would help him to fulfil the dream that began in his adolescence the first time he saw E.
This meeting led to Roque's first work for cinema: Backroads Roque has his own seal of identity when composing, but his work never offers the same thing twice, giving rise to the creation of scores as magnificent as Fragile , 13 Roses , Alatriste , Heart of the Warrior , Diary of a Nymphomaniac , Evil Dead or his latest for In the Heart of the Sea by Ron Howard.
He studied at the New England Conservatory, where he earned a degree in piano performance in In Callery was contracted to compose the music for the series Nikita, which was broadcast for five seasons between and Callery collaborated with the TV producer Joel Surnow in the television series 24 , from to
