"Sakuraba Never Ceases to Amaze"
by Go Nakajima, Asahi TV Producer/Director
Motoi Sakuraba always composes new songs incredibly fast. Even with all the stuff that's "programmed" in by computer, his pace is mind-boggling when you consider the sheer number of tracks he turns out. However, what amazes me even more is the high quality. If it was just a matter of speed, then anyone could do it. But Sakuraba's musicianship, his orchestration, the variety found in his motifs, his sense of rhythm, and his concept of tone inspire a truly profound sense of admiration deep inside me. Someday I'd like for him to write a score just for himself and conduct it with a full orchestra.
In this, his current project, he's been specifically asked not to portray having psychic abilities as heroic, but as brimming with images of sorrow. Using one's psychic abilities to fight is indeed a sad, futile thing...
I'm deeply grateful to everyone involved in the release of this soundtrack. I hope lots of people listen to the work of "Cyber Composer Sakuraba."
