An Interview with Platina Jazz’s Rasmus Faber

About the author

zzeroparticle Anime Instrumentality's Founder and Editor-in-Chief. As you can probably guess, I'm a big anime music junkie with a special love for composers who've put out some beautiful melodies to accompany some of my favorite anime series. I tend to gravitate towards music in the classical style with Joe Hisaishi and Yoko Kanno being a few of my favorite composers, but I've come to appreciate jazz and rock as anime music has widened my tastes.

    Great interview. Not sure why this didn’t pop up when I was trying to do some research for my own post on the subject, but I’m glad you popped by to tell me about it. ^_^
