Toru Takemitsu by Charlotte Zwerin( Visual )

4 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tōru Takemitsu (1930-1996), well-known Japanese composer, wrote the scores for some of the most celebrated, seminal works of Japan's New Wave movement, and collaborated with Akira Kurosawa, Nagisa Oshima, Masahiro Shinoda, and Hiroshi Teshigahara--some very obsessive directors. Takemitsu emphasized the sound, images, and textures of natural living things, as he scored power struggles, paranoia, fractured family relations, and the two big subjects that often dominate the films his work accompanies: murder and suicide. Takemitsu's scores feature Japanese instruments and musical concepts, but he also used musician's performance techniques, engineering tweaks, and sometimes specific sound effects, which were performed, recorded, and edited into sharp musical statements for Japanese films that addressed issues heretofore rarely depicted in Japanese cinema. Interviews with Takemitsu, Teshigahara, Shinoda, Kobayashi and Oshima are illustrated with copious clips from their films
