01. Opening Title
05. Root of Evil
18. World’s End
Carry their wound, while the pains burning in the darkness,
Quietly stay close with the true gentleness,
with a melody of a flicker of hope and salvation.
Original soundtrack for the film “Embers” is released.
This film is based on the story written by the Akutagawa Prize awarded novelist Fuminori Nakamura, and directed by Junpei Matsumoto, starring Yuya Yagira, with Masato Yano, Yu Hirukawa, Kenichi Takito, and Lily.
This delicate film score composed by a piano and a string quartet with courtesies and sympathetic manner, are to express the emotions and feeling of the main character Keito played by Yuya Yagira and other characters in the story.
The album is completed with minimal and rich compositions. These compositions were created with the hint from the director’s word of determination “To be affirmative”, and Akira Kosemura’s touching melodies expressing the heat in the silence will bring a flicker of hope and salvation in various scenes.
“Embers” will be shown in theaters in Japan from November 8th.
