Anime OST: Higurashi

Anime soundtracks tend to fly over people’s head most of the time they’re watching a show. This is because tracks composed solely for the need to improve the scene that it accompanies are generally only as good while you’re watching the scene. If there is a piece that can still offer the listener a deep level of listening without the accompaniment of the scene it was put in with during the show, then that one song can be considered by most people a very well done piece. So, from now on, I will start make posts (whenever I feel like it) about albums that contain these very songs (which include OP and ED songs).  First up…

Higurashi’s soundtrack is composed by Kawai Kenji, utilizing percussion, strings, SFX, and female vocalization to convey a dark and eerie tone.
