Release – Terror in Resonance O.S.T. 1

Today is the release day of the first O.S.T. of Terror in Resonance.

It was actually already out yesterday in some places in Japan, I was able to buy one copy and I can tell this album is awesome!

Terror in Resonance OST and limited edition bag

There’s a bag with the limited edition, but the interesting stuff is on the CD.

The cover is actually composed of 3 separate transparent layers, and the booklet is quite special too. It contains pretty long descriptions for each song, as well as Japanese translations of the different songs lyrics. I can’t promise anything, but I’ll try to translate the notes someday.

For those wondering if this high resolution (96kHz/24bits) CD is playable anywhere, it is. But you need a special and expensive player to play it in HD.

You can purchase this album on Amazon Japan or CD Japan.

Or you can buy just the music files on the website mora in normal or HD quality, and also on iTunes Japan.

I’m now waiting for the O.S.T. 2 announcement…

Terror in Resonance O.S.T. Notes – Part 2

And here comes the translation of the Shinichiro Watanabe interview about the Terror in Resonance O.S.T.

Entitled In search of Iceland’s fantasy, this interview mentions the reason they recorded the music in Iceland and how was the collaboration with Yoko Kanno, and we learn that this O.S.T. is meant to be the album the protagonist Nine is listening to in the Terror in Resonance anime.

— I learned you’ve been to Iceland at the beginning of April to record your project music. Why was it Iceland this time?

Shinichiro Watanabe: Terror in Resonance is a totally original work, but at the production very beginning when I do the conception from scratch, I always wonder what kind of music will make a good starting point because there are plenty cases where the images come out of the music. This time also at the start, a concept inspired by Iceland music emerged. Continue reading Terror in Resonance O.S.T. Notes – Part 2
