Arnòr Dan posted a picture he took with Yoko Kanno and Keisuke “Tommy” Tominaga at the sundlaugin studio in Reykjavik earlier this year during the recording of the Terror in Resonance music.
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!
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.
I’m now waiting for the O.S.T. 2 announcement…
A few websites are now listing the tracks of the Terror in Resonance OST coming out in a few weeks.
Though I’m not quite sure, the tracks titles are maybe written in Icelandic.

Yoko Kanno will contribute to some extent to the new Watanabe project Space☆Dandy.
This new anime (katakanized スペース☆ダンディ) will tell the story of an alien hunter named Space Dandy. Remind you something?
A Worldwide simultaneous broadcast began on January 5, 2014 in Japan, USA, Australia, England, France, Germany, Italy, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Viet Nam, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Makau, India and Korea! This is probably the first time it happens!
On the music side, it looks like a bit of a mess. 22 musicians are contributing to the project, and among them lies Yoko Kanno (and also Taro Umebayashi who also works for the label Piano). Everything is managed by the music producer Keisuke “Tommy” Tominaga who also works for Piano Inc.
The music is labeled by Flying Dog who created a dedicated website.
Yoko Kanno is not involved in the opening theme but arranged the ending theme entitled「X次元へようこそ」(X jigen e yōkoso [trans: Welcome to the X Dimension]).
It is performed by Yakushimaru Etsuko and will be released as a single in January 29, 2014:
Single「X次元へようこそ/絶対ムッシュ制」(X jigen e yōkoso/Zettai MUSSHU-sei)
