    Good choice , I am a big fan of Takemitsu. The Hisaishi soundtracks for Myazake are great as are the ones he did for Kitano. He will direct his soundtracks at the Paris Philharmonie, but the places were all gone quickly.
    Another one of my favorites is the soundtrack for Jin Roh.

    Cowboy Bebop



    The Cowboy Bebop anime series was accompanied by a number of soundtrack albums composed by Yoko Kanno and Seatbelts, a diverse band Kanno formed to create the music for the series, with a principal focus in jazz. The recordings were an international effort with many notable names attached, including that of recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder. The soundtrack was released in the American market by Victor Entertainment, a subsidiary of JVC Kenwood.

    "Tank!" is the series' opening song. The song, written by Yoko Kanno and performed by Seatbelts, has an extensive alto saxophone solo played by Masato Honda, as well as a fill part at the end. The song is a big band jazz piece in a Latin-infused hard bop style with a rhythm section that combines a double bass and bongo drums.

    "Tank!" is primarily an instrumental piece, though it does feature some spoken male vocals (provided by long-time collaborator with Kanno, Tim Jensen) in the introductory portion of the song, thematically jazz in style. The vocal portion provides a lead-in to the instrumental portion, and its final lyrics, "I think it's time we blow this scene. Get everybody and the stuff together. Okay, three, two, one let's jam", signal the beginning bursts of the majority, purely instrumental end of the song.

    It has been featured on the soundtracks to the series and was used on the preview for TV series My Own Worst Enemy. Figure skater Kevin Reynolds performed his solo routine for the 2016 Canadian National Figure Skating Championships to Tank, and did it dressed as Spike Spiegel.

    When we take the subject of this thread literal, the new Trevor Horn fits in it too:

    The first - I thought it was a Japanese film.

    That Tomita soundtrack is most excellent. Give the film a wide berth, though, it’s one of the worst things I’ve ever seen from Japan!

    Here’s an excellent soundtrack to a film you should not avoid; J. A. Seazer’s score to Den-en ni shisu (Pastoral: To Die in the Country):

    Confirmed Bachelors: the dramedy hit of 1883...

    Joe Hisaishi : Sonatine , a film by Takeshi Kitano, sounds inspired by Tubular Bells, but I actually prefer Sonatine

    When I first saw that film about twenty years ago, my first thought was: "Hey, did Asturias score this one?" They were accused of being a New Age Oldfield clone (if you take that as an accusation), after all.

    As I wrote I prefer Sonatine , for sure Hisaishi was aware of Tubular Bells, but I see this more as a hommage ( and refinement) to Oldfields work. Hisaishi will direct 3 concerts of his works (and play piano) in two weeks at the Paris Philharmonie.
