Chasing Smoke - Princess Mononoke Nouveau by musashimixinq Chasing Smoke - Princess Mononoke Nouveau by musashimixinq
I first saw Princess Mononoke as part of an outing with the Anime Club in high-school. The Art Institue of Chicago was holding a special screening at a time when anime had never seen major distribution in America.

In the late 90s, if you wanted anime or manga, you were going to have to work for it. The lights went out and Yo-yo Ma’s strings set every otaku’s teeth on edge. Equal parts history and legend, the story captured the hearts of audiences around the world.

Miyazaki’s epic masterpiece remains one of my favorite films of all time.

Wonderful feature on Tokyo Pop : [link]

Beautiful!

It wasn't Yo-Yo ma who composed it though, it was Joe Hisaishi.

Thanks!

The YoYo + Hisaishi combo was a pretty big deal at the time. Definitely helped push Miyazaki into the American mainstream.
