Friday, 24th of August 2018. Downtown Cologne. Near Neumarkt. A wonderful almost midsummer afternoon offered the perfect framework as a reward for weeks of intensive preparation for this most eagerly awaited encounter. As part of Soundtrack # 15, we were able to win the award-winning composer Takeshi Furukawa for an in-depth dialogue. For more than two hours, he should give us answers to many questions concerning his person and his works. So it was particularly important for us to choose a course of conversation that brings us closer to the person Takeshi Furukawa, what his motivation is, how he describes his compositional process or what role his Japanese roots still play.
From the good two hours 90 minutes can be heard here, which are accompanied by some special selected wonderful music pieces and their background story by Takeshi Furukawa himself from the Playstation 4 videogame The Last Guardian. And since there has never been a conversation translated into German with Takeshi Furukawa, we are celebrating another premiere with this one of our most elaborate episodes yet.
We hope that you like this particular episode as much as we do. A very personal thank you Takeshi for making this all possible!
