Kenji Kawai - Chaos (1999)

Kenji Kawai is one of my favorite soundtrack composers. He's done the music for films of many styles: anime, action, sci-fi, horror and more. His compositions are always varied, interesting and complementary; the music is "there" but it never overtakes a scene.

The score that Kenji Kawai composed for Hideo Nakata's Chaos is electronic, heavily percussive and eerie. Eventually, it even becomes uplifting. Considering how much I enjoy the score, I'm disappointed at myself for not having taken the time to actually see the movie!

I found a link to a streaming theatrical trailer online. There are Korean subtitles, so the trailer must have originally come from a Korean distributor. I downloaded the trailer with Orbit Downloader and then uploaded it to YouTube. You can hear a bit of the score in the background. Check it out:

I downloaded this out-of-print soundtrack about nine months ago at membership BitTorrent site Asian DVD Club. EncSpot Pro identifies this as having been encoded at 224kbps with LAME 3.92.
