Anime Music on the AIRS Ep. 8 – Travel Music

As usual, we’d like to have the Anime Music on the AIRS radio show have themes that make some modicum of sense. Last time, we had a summer-riffic blast. Now, we turn to anime music that captures travel: whether it’s something like a full-fledged adventure, merely wandering about, short, but fast excursions, or whatever else strikes up your fancy. While there are some heavy tracks within, most are lighter fare. But then again, traveling is supposed to be exciting and fun!

To carry on with our themes, let’s depart from the previous moods like summer’s joy and traveling’s optimism and let’s sink to the lower depths with some despair. So yeah, anything that dulls the happiness and makes you lose all traces of hope.

Also, if you have other themes you’d like me to place on the docket, feel free to throw your suggestions our way.

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.
