Kitaro's scores   Sunday, March 9, 2008 (3:00 p.m.) 

This was not Kitaro's first film score. He has written a number of scores for the Japanese market going back to the late 70s, the anime film "Queen Millenia" and the "Silk Road" TV series among them (the latter ran for 5 years). Both are similar in style to his electronic albums of the era (and were sold as New Age albums in the West), but are soundtracks nevertheless.

Oh, and there's "Nile" as well:

Some samples from "Queen Millenia"   Sunday, March 9, 2008 (3:26 p.m.) 

Here are some Youtube links for those interested in his earlier work. He wrote several pop songs for "Queen Millenia" that were not included in the New Age album "Millenia" released in the West.

"Queen Millenia" opening credits (the video drawing from scenes through the movie, though):

His pop song "Angel Queen" from Queen Millenia (it isn't fantastic, but interesting to those familiar with the "Millenia" album...):

The full version of "Angel Queen", from the actual film (also notes the name of the vocalist Dara Sedaka):

Kitaro collaborated with David Foster ("St. Elmo's Fire", "The Bodyguard") to produce it back in the early 80s. His collaboration with Western soundtrack artists goes back a bit. More here:

(Sorry, I would have put all this back in the original post, but neglected to select a passsword.)
