A collection of three Japanese-themed tracks:
Japan – 01:00 This piece of orchestral music features Japanese instruments such as the shakuhachi, the koto and the shamisen to create an epic sound with traditional influences. With its sweeping, cinematic and martial feel, the music would accompany Japanese-themed video games and historical films (particularly about the samurai!) perfectly. The fusion of Japan’s rich musical tradition with Western cinematic music often creates an epic, driving feel and this piece is no exception to that pattern. Syncopated orchestral chords underpinned by the martial taiko drums and intricate koto lines suggest the approach of battle with a historical authenticity.
Japanese – 01:52 This piece of orchestral music, influenced by traditional Japanese music and using traditional Japanese instruments, sets a martial tone and would fit perfectly in Japanese-themed video games and films. With a feeling of menace, impending tension and majestic power, this cinematic fusion of western and Japanese traditional music, complete with thundering taiko drums, intricate koto, lyrical shakuhachi and spirited shamisen, is an evocative, symphonic and unique way of giving your Japanese or Eastern inspired projects an epic framework.
East- 02:00 This piece uses traditional oriental instruments to create a reflective, mysterious and ancient atmosphere, rich in history and heritage. Whether you are charting the fall of the Heike, following a group of ronin, plotting Tokugawa’s journey across the Edo plains or touring ancient temples, this piece, with its gentle sense of mystery and timeless beauty, will make a perfect, epic accompaniment to evoke whichever world you are hoping to step into in an edgy, immersive, evocative and entertaining way. This piece is perfect to accompany documentaries about ancient history.
