On February 17th, music from the world-famous anime "Spirited Away" by Hayao Miyazaki will be performed by Simple Music Ensemble World at the Casino de Montbenon (Salle Paderewski), Lausanne.
"Spirited Away" is a cult work of the great Japanese storyteller Hayao Miyazaki. This is the first animated film that won the Academy Award as the best full-length cartoon. This is a story about a little girl who finds herself in a mysterious world and goes through many trials to save her parents from the charms of an evil witch.
Each cartoon by Hayao Miyazaki is a separate world with its own rules, philosophy and ideas. The magical music of the composer Joe Hisaishi, who acts as his full co-author, has become an important part of Miyazaki's artistic language. Hisaishi writes the soundtrack not after the film has already been created, but in parallel with its production. The composer, after receiving a short description of the film, on its basis composes music. Hisaishi uses all kinds of music in his works: from orchestral melodies to the advanced Japanese electronics of the eighties.
Simple Music Ensemble World will feature the music by Joe Hisaishi in its own unique arrangements. These melodies will take our listeners into the magical world of Hayao Miyazaki, where evil is always stronger at first, but in the end good always triumphs over it.
