Ryuichi Sakamoto shares soundtrack for new sci-fi horror Anime, ‘Exception’


The Japanese composer has shared two tracks written for the brand new Netflix sequence, which involves the streaming platform from 14 October.

Exception is a brand new Anime written by Hirotaka Adachi – aka Otsuichi – directed by Yuzo Sato and soundtracked by Ryuichi Sakamoto. The programme, which describes itself as a “terrifying space horror”, is about within the distant future the place the human race has needed to depart Earth for one more galaxy.

Sakamoto’s rating for the sequence shall be launched on the identical day that the present premieres (14 October) by way of Milan Records. Speaking on creating the soundtrack, Sakamoto mentioned, “I wanted to make the main theme a symphonic piece – the kind that has become a staple in science fiction since Star Wars.”

“As for the soundtrack as a whole,” he continued, “I worked towards keeping it darkly ambient, wanting it to feel like one piece of music rather than separated by scene. That said, I did include a degree of harsh sounds in the fighting scenes. Overall, I was able to make a soundtrack I like very much.”
