The Yomiuri Shimbun paper posted an interview with composer Joe Hisaishi about his August concerts that will mark his 25 years scoring Studio Ghibli music. In the interview, he and Ghibli producer Toshio Suzuki described the way the studio recruited the composer, his experience over the years with Ghibli, and his work on the latest Ghibli film (Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea). GhibliWorld.com posted a summary of the interview.
Ghibli's Oscar-winning director Hayao Miyazaki created a promotional poster (pictured at right) for the August 4 and 5 concerts. The concerts will be held at the Nippon Budokan complex in Tokyo.
