Pocket Monsters anime composer Shinji Miyazaki has released a pre-production version of the fan favourite track Oración, from Pokémon: The Rise of Darkrai. This version features accompanying vocals, previously unheard in any media. Mr. Miyazaki is planning to editing more recorded scores to make them playable in a live performance.
I have been involved in composing the original soundtracks for 23 Pokémon movies. (21 films with director Kunihiko Yuyama, 2 films with director Tetsuo Yajima).
When I look back on those 24 years, I feel a little disappointed now. This is because I rarely had the opportunity to enjoy concerts in the same time and space as the soundtrack fans.
So I'm thinking of picking up the major recording scores and editing them little by little. (Editing here means to make the total score playable in a live performance.)
I hope this weel meet the needs of soundtrack fans, even if only a little. If there is any concrete progress, I will let you know.
I also plan to create the following scores "Canciones de Oración”
This is a tribute to the 2007 movie "The Rise of Darkrai"
Some soundtrack fans may say, "I don't like music with lyrics because they limit the image!" However, I myself was composing with vocals in mind (at the time), and if Director Yuyama had requested music with lyrics, this is what I would have done.
