Album Review

Denen Ni Shisu (soundtrack)

shiroi   3/9/2007   A Library

This 1974 film’s soundtrack’s title means “Death In The Fields.” Terayama Shuji made the avant-garde film which compares a runaway boy’s coming of age with Japan’s loss of innocence from World War II. It is a mix of traditional Japanese musical styles. Sad folk, often in enka syle, spoken words of sadness often with flute and guitar, dramatic choral portions, children’s singing, group singing, shouted word with accompanying musical drama. Magnificent material. -Shiroi
