KnK stream with unreleased bgms for Shiki Ryougi Birthday

Posted , Updated

Ufotable‘s channel has a stream today with Kara no Kyoukai soundtrack to celebrate Shiki’s birthday (according to google, February 17) that will durate until the release of the birthday illustration of Shiki Ryougi.

Its playing some hours now and what’s more surprising is that it contains demo tracks with different vocals (eg Kajiura instead of Hanae Tomaru), sfx and instruments and some bgms are totally unreleased too

Its still unknown if any of that will make it to a CD release or will be just in this stream.

Update: The stream ended at midnight of February 16, Japan time.

By the way, the tracklist of the DEEMO Movie soundtrack is also out, but so far confirming only “inside a dream” and “nocturne instrumental” to be by Y.Kajiura, however, there is a rumor that she also handled all the non-game BGMs, but remains to be seen if its like that or not 🙂

About Noe Ito.
Noe Ito. Women’s liberation activist of the Taisho era.
A hundred years ago, with the power of a single brush, she challenged the institution of marriage and social morality head-on.
Her only source of inspiration was her overflowing passion.
She lived a life of unrestrained freedom and was about to blossom as a writer when unreasonable violence took her life at the age of just 28. Her life of bravely confronting the social contradictions of today, such as poverty and gender inequality, is once again powerfully shaking the current stagnation.
Based on the novel by Yuka Murayama, winner of the Yoshikawa Eiji Prize for Literature, and scripted by Mukoda Kuniko Award winner Koichi Yajima, the film features Yuriko Yoshitaka as Noe Ito, and depicts the “flame” of a woman who tried her best to protect freedom.

One hundred years ago, in the Taisho era (1912-1926), Raei Hiratsuka issued a proclamation stating that “from the beginning, women were the sun”, and rebelled against the strong tendency of male chauvinism. The women who applauded her began to speak out against society.
Noe Itoh, who grew up in the countryside of Fukuoka, rejected marriage to support her poor family and moved to Tokyo. With a thirst for freedom and overflowing enthusiasm, she supported Radao’s bluestocking company and eventually became a “young icon” of the times.
Her first husband, the Dadaists Jun Tsuji, left her, and she met her better half, the anarchist Sakae Osugi, and just as she was about to start to blossom, the Great Kanto Earthquake struck. Unreasonable violence strikes her…
