Anime Maestros '15: Composers Behind the Best Music in Anime

Postby The Goatee » Mon Sep 21, 2015 4:27 pm

Hi guys, I'm posting to spread the word about a panel I will hopefully be leading if the application is accepted called Anime Maestros. In this panel we will take a look at several different composers in the anime scene, and watch scenes from specific anime each composer lent their talents to as we dive into what makes each musician unique and amazing, and how important music is in the anime world. The panel will be 2 hours (1 and a half if needed) and will include scenes scored by Joe Hisaishi, Yoko Kanno, Hiroyuki Sawano, Yuki Kaijira, Tenmon and several more amazing composers! I am a freelance music composer myself, writing for independent games such as the Steam released Masochisia and independent animation projects including ARMSMasters, which will be showing content at the vendors hall!
I hope you guys attend, and please feel free to leave suggestions!

Hey guys! Just posting a list of the composers being covered! If you have any suggestions please let me know!
(list not final)
-Joe Hasaishi
-Yoko Kanno
-Yuki Kaijira
-Hiroyuki Sawano
-TENMON
-Jun Maeda
-Yuuki Hayashi
-Shirou Sagisu
-Yoshihisa Hirano
-Naoki Sato

Some may covered a little more thoroughly than others (if it helps, the first four will be covered the most, the middle 4 will get decent time, and the last two will be hit briefly). This is only to spread things out more evenly between composers who have made bigger impacts. This is in no way saying your favorite composer sucks. If I had it my way this panel would be 6 hours!!! jk:p 2 hours is a generous amount of time, but there is so much material to talk about when it comes to anime music that chipping it down is still a huge chore.

This panel hopefully gets viewers interested enough to check out their work on their own, and this panel hopefully is a great start :) And no, this is not a dry "history lesson" panel. While we will go over a BRIEF background of each, we will be watching scenes n which the composers demonstrate their skills the best, and show the importance of music in building atmosphere and emotion in anime. I will keep which anime scenes will be shown a secret so you can look forward to it, but if you have a scene in mind for any of the composers above please feel free to leave a comment :)
