Favorite Anime Composers (8 person items)

"Her iconic works are usually jazz or orchestral based but she's also known for going to electronic, blues, folk, pop and art rock. Also works for various movies, commercials, dramas, and as a singular music producer. She's also the owner of the jazz ensemble: The Seatbelts which was created solely for the Cowboy Bebop OST. The name "Seatbelts" coming from the need to wear seatbelts they had to wear while recording their sessions, which is an indicator of how grandiose her music can sound. Works"
