Terror of Resonance #1 Music

The first episode of Terror of Resonance aired last week and featured plenty of unreleased music.

This is definitely not surprising if you’re familiar with Yoko Kanno’s soundtracks. But still, the first episode only uses 2 pieces of music from the O.S.T. (3 actually, but birden is played only for 7 seconds), and fugl is even played twice. Among the music played in the episode, there seems to be 2 or 3 long instrumental action tracks, and the rest is composed of very short inserted pieces of music.

The episode was also the occasion to discover the ending theme, sounding a bit like another song Yoko Kanno wrote but I cannot point out which one (I would have said a song from Turn A Gundam but I just listened to the whole soundtrack again and couldn’t find it…). Anyway, it’s a sad and dark song with a very interesting arrangement, I’m looking forward to the full version (in September…).

Here is a little sheet presenting the music played in the episode:

  1. It was a very solid first episode! Some great animation, and the pacing was spot on.

    While I’m having trouble sitting down and listening to the OST as a standalone work, it’s fitting the show incredibly well. (My favorite track might be Walt, yet to be heard).

    The ending theme is a little less melodic than I prefer, but it’s expertly layered and quite beautiful.

    Exciting stuff!

    P.S. The music spreadsheet you have here is awesome.
