Joe Hisaishi

A composer and arranger for anime, film and television

Joe Hisaishi

Mamoru Fujisawa (藤澤 守), known professionally as Joe Hisaishi (久石 譲), born December 6, 1950), is a composer and music director known for over 100 film scores and solo albums dating back to 1981.

While possessing a stylistically distinct sound, Hisaishi's music has been known to explore and incorporate different genres, including minimalist, experimental electronic, European classical, and Japanese classical. Lesser known are the other musical roles he plays; he is also a typesetter, author, arranger, and conductor.

He is best known for his work with animator Hayao Miyazaki, having composed scores for many of his films including Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984), Castle in the Sky (1986), My Neighbor Totoro (1988), Kiki's Delivery Service (1989), Porco Rosso (1992), Princess Mononoke (1997), Spirited Away (2001), Howl's Moving Castle (2004) and Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea (2008). He is also recognized for the soundtracks he has provided for filmmaker 'Beat' Takeshi Kitano, including A Scene at the Sea (1991), Dolls (2002), Kikujiro (1999), Hana-bi (1997), Kids Return (1996), and Sonatine (1993). He was a student of legendary anime composer Takeo Watanabe. He is also very good friends with fellow anime composers Shiro Sagisu and Yoko Kanno.

He composed his first work for a video game on the Level-5 and Studio Ghibli collaboration Ni no Kuni Shikkoku no Madoshi and its PlayStation 3 cousin Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch.
