Phoenix Collective and Video Symptoms announce the release of its second Digital Sessions: Music from the Japanese cult animation giant, Studio Ghibli.

8 tracks from 6 different movies arranged for string quartet. Viewers will delight in a filmed and animated Phoenix Collective Quartet, alongside clips from the movies with music composed by Joe Hisaishi and arranged by Yukihiro Matsubara and Hiro Tsurunori.

The wonderful lush sound coming from the Phoenix Collective made it an even richer experience​ - City News

The growing trend of film screenings accompanied by live music performance foregrounds the score, highlighting the drama of the music, enabling listeners to hear detail not audible during the movie. Edits require split-second timing, which means instrumentation demands a lot from players. These combine to provide a more intense audience experience.

The Ghibli movies blend of fantasy and reality highlight growth and the importance of nature. Renowned for their empathy for human frailty, they provide a re-energising reminder of our need for imaginative, uplifting journeys. These acclaimed music scores that accompany each movie have the added potential to attract younger audiences who come to hear the film scores.
