Steve Aoki remixes the iconic theme from the 1995 “Ghost In The Shell” anime, along with some new footage from the upcoming live-action GHOST IN THE SHELL feature film, starring Scarlett Johansson as “Mira” (“The Major” - formerly known as "Motoko Kusanagi").
Originally composed by Kenji Kawai, "Making of a Cyborg" is a mixture of Bulgarian harmony and traditional Japanese notes - using the ancient Japanese language of Yamato - with the ethereal and haunting chorals being a “wedding song” sung to dispel all evil influences (Source).
Do troll down to the bottom of this post for a listen at the OG version from the anime opening, AND a orchestra playing the tune, after you’ve heard the hipster/EDM-mix featured up top of this post.
