Yoko Kanno

From Academic Kids

Yoko Kanno (菅野 よう子 Kanno Yōko, born March 19, 1964) is a famous composer and keyboardist known for her performances and musical scores in anime titles.

Some of her most famous music pieces are "Voices" (Macross Plus), "Tank!" (Cowboy Bebop), "Yakusoku wa Iranai" (Escaflowne), "Gravity" (Wolf's Rain), and "Inner Universe" (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex). She was the lead member of a band called The Seatbelts, which was formed for the sole purpose of making the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack.

She has composed for many Koei games released during the late 1980s to early 1990s and for a Dreamcast game. Due to her close involvenment in the Cowboy Bebop anime, the game released by Bandai also features her work.

Apart from anime and games, Kanno also composes for live-action films and CMs (television advertisements or commercials) for all sorts of brands. Grand Funk Inc. is her recording studio of choice in producing for these two media. Contributions to films started in the 90s but only since 2002 has there been a trend towards the medium. Most of the latter were shown in international film festivals.

There is some speculation that one of her frequently hired vocalists, Gabriela Robin, is Kanno herself under a pseudonym. [1] (http://www.geocities.com/gabriella_robin/gr.html)

She is currently married to fellow composer Hajime Mizoguchi, with whom she collaborated on the soundtracks for Please Save My Earth and Escaflowne.

She has attended Otakon and Anime Expo in 1999, as well as Anime Expo New York in 2002.
