Music Files

ezuka wanted his film to have two primary strong points: special effects and musical score. He was right about the music. Computer graphics may look dated now, but the orchestral score, composed by Yasuo Higuchi, remains as beautiful as it was quarter of a century ago.
CD cover         Here are a few fragments in mp3 format. Ethical and technical considerations alike keep me from offering higher-quality sound files for download. The film's soundtrack is available on CD from Columbia Music Entertainment: "Animex 1200 series 77: Hi no Tori 2772 Original soundtrack". ASIN: B0002 ONZXS.
        I strongly recommend the CD regardless of your impression of the film itself.
