Top Ten East Asian Soundtracks by Richard Buxton

 

Watching films of the Far East and listening to their scores can often be a frustrating experience for someone in the West. The magnitude of the musical talent on offer in the likes of Japan, China and South Korea is astounding, yet it is a rare occurrence for their ability to grace the sounds of a Western film and thus depriving a significant portion of worldwide audiences of outstanding musical material.

 

In this Top 10 I have chosen my favourite East Asian scores for live-action film and television after the year 2000. Choosing 10 from over a decade of spectacular film scores was difficult to say the least. Having to leave out the many NHK Taiga drama scores, Tan Dun and Kousuke Yamashita among others was certainly a difficult decision, and the likes of Taro Iwashiro and Naoki Sato could quite easily fill this entire list by themselves. Such is the talent available in the Far East, a number of these score would be in contention for a worldwide top 10, and are therefore most certainly worth your attention.
