    Joe hisaishi is my favorite composer, his music and the studio ghibli films shaped my childhood, this was what Disney was for allot of people ☺️ if you guys know any other great composers please reply with their names, i would love to look them up

    You videos are excellent! I use to play music when I was young but never reached an academic level. All you say, even if complex sounds clear to me. You are a great teacher, and we can see you love what you do. Seriously, congratulations, this content is really qualitative and this is rare these days.

    I don’t know what it is about this music but it sounds timeless as if it’s sounds I’ve heard my whole life even though the first time I came across a studio Ghibli movies was 10 years ago.

    Probably the 25.000th visitor reccomending this to you. But ever thought of breaking down Yann Tierssen’s Amelie and Goodbye Lenin soundtracks. Those are amazing as well.

    Thanks for your video’s, love them!

    U know when ur listening to a new song and you think it’s reached a peak but it gets better. This is what a lot of Joe Hisaishi songs do. He’s absolute master

  23. Animarum

    Please do a part 2 of Ghibli film music! Especially the "sixth station" from Spirited Away, or the main theme from Porco Rosso. Both are piano heavy bangers!

    This was absolutely amazing! Joe Hisaishi is a genius! Could you have a look at Ashitaka and San or Nostalgia? These are some more amazing examples of his genius

    Too bad you haven’t watch the movies. I’m sure you’ll give the soundtrack more appreciation. I don’t mean you’re not appreciate it right now, it just when you watch the movies, the experience is so life changing. For me at least

    With the Merry-go-round of life the pacing is also quite special. Its written as a waltz and starts slow and almost somber then picks up speed more and more until it hits its climax then winds back down, much like how a merry-go-round goes.

    His music has helped me calm down from meltdowns. As an autistic person, I get meltdowns from sensory overload, and Mr. Hisashi’s music for sone reason does the trick in helping me come down from them. I owe so much to him. His music will always be a special part of my life. It was an integral part of my childhood, and helped me with recovering from meltdowns.

    Nice to see someone analysed piano music from Japanese movies/series, unfortunately it is only Studio Ghibli. Please checkout the music from the movie おおかみこどもの雨と雪 (Ōkami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki, Eng. title Wolf children) by Studio Chizu.

    Dammmmn I wish you listened to the piece he did in Porcco Rosso "By Gone Days" (the Budokan concert version, of course). The saxophone is so sexy 🥵✨
