Spirited away by the beat

Lars Gotrich of NPR is reporting that Australian music producer Andrei Eremin (aka Ghosting) was inspired by Hayao Miyazaki’s ghostly story of loss and redemption, Spirited Away, to sample and re-mix the soundtrack.  Looping in a piano track and adding a synthesized beat, Eremin “shades the original [soundtrack] with darker hues that manage to retain its wide-eyed wonder.”

Eremin, pleased with results of his Spirited Away experiment, is now planning to sample and re-mix all of Miyazaki’s films.

The accompanying video gives a foretaste for the entire re-mix project, the Reimaging Miyazaki Mixtape, that will be available on May 12 on Wondercore Island:
