Lupin the 3rd another go

Post by kensuguro » Wed Jul 13, 2016 7:43 pm

I take a stab at the Lupin the 3rd theme once in a while. Lupin the 3rd is a popular Japanese anime series about a robber, Lupin III. You can hear the original here:

(I worship Yuji Ohno)

Mine's just a paraphrased version of the main theme.

!!! I didn't know Yuji Ohno !!! I don't know how it's possible I don't ! This music on the video is the prototype of what I love ! I know there is a lot of peoplein Japan making that kind of music... U.F.O. is an example (but I think there is also one or 2 french guys).
Thanks for sharing ! I'm going to explore what Yuji Ohno did !

Your version is very good ! A bit too much saturation for my taste and I believe I would have try to use brass samples instead of brass synth but all is present. Bravissimo !
And thank you for having become known me Yuji Ohno ! (don't know if this last sentence is good english but you see what I mean...)

haha, didn't expect anyone to know U.F.O outside of a niche circle, even in Japan! Yuji Ohno and his music is very much tied to Lupin the III's identity, or I guess you could say Lupin the III's identity rests on Ohno's music. To my understanding, the best identifiable name I've been able to find for this genre or "sound" is exotica, or Tiki music. At least that's as close as I could find in the US vocabulary.

In the US, exotica seems to be more heavily influenced by Polynesian sounds and southeast asia, flavors imported through the coming home of post WWII military men. In Japan, the influx of foreign music right after the war, particularly American (jazz), French, and for some reason Latin (ballroom dancing: chacha, rumba, salsa, mambo) seems to have shaped the "exotica" era sound, at least in my observation. You can really hear those elements in Ohno's music.

Check out this radio, you might like it:

I think it's always interesting, whatever the medium, when cultural (mis)appropriation takes an interesting turn. Sometimes it takes the insensibility (or open mindedness) of an outsider to take a fixed medium and reassess whether everything about it needs to stay fixed, or not. And since usually these cultural appropriations usually center around items of past eras, the reinterpretation happens under a new context, leading to eyeopening experiences when done with skill and care. (though most attempts end up just sounding foolish) Of course, people get all upset but well, in that case I think it was a bad choice of the object to appropriate. It seems to be more peaceful when the people owning the object are distant in space or time, or are no longer around. (precisely like when you want to steal something)

:) Thanks for the radio ! Very good ! Even if some electrosounds are missing... Never satisfied ! I'd like the same radio but with some more electro sounds ! :D

Aaah ! U.F.O. (United Future Organization) ! I have all their cds. THAT is the music I love. Here, in France, they are known... Less than Madonna but all good music listeners (I mean people who is not satified by radio music) know them. They made "Le serpent rouge" with Arthur H, a french singer. http://www.starzik.com/mp3/titres/Waltz ... 05547.html And there are 1 or 2 french guys in that group.
And this ! :

FantastiK !

It seems that a lot of people make some fusion between electro & jazz in Japan... Since a long time ! And that is the music I really love.

huh, I remember the Loud Minority tune from hearing it once like 15 years ago. That trumpet line. I can't even remember why I heard that tune. Oh, I remember, my friend played it as his example of a montuno piano line.
