Discovering the Music of Joe Hisaishi [★]Monday, December 31, 2012
I have been watching Studio Ghibli films for some time but it was only recently that I started to appreciate the music alongside each film. Apparently, it was Joe Hisaishi's works that made each film more dramatic through his music.
I first stumbled upon him when I searched for 'Summer', the piano piece that Kang Sora played in We Got Married. I then found out that it was composed by Joe Hisaishi.
I instantly fell in love with the song. It has a very happy melody. Other works that I like are Itsumo Nande Demo from Spirited Away and Umi No Mieru Machi from Kiki's Delivery Service.
I'm dying to learn these pieces on the piano! （人´∀`*）
