Yoko Kanno: “Hey Cockroaches!” (MSM Retros)

Play Audio Clip Listen to audio clip.

Yoko Kanno is the composer of the untitled 7-minute score for the new Spike Lee-directed “Cowboy Bebop.”

The short film by Lee features several indie-rock artists like Bia and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire singing on two different tracks and this short film is designed to be a “tethered soundtrack” of the later animated feature “Goosebumps” followed by the accompanying jazz score for Spike Lee’s “Goosebumps: The Elm Street Legacy.”

A “heavily improvised” 22-piece jazz orchestra including Mariachi violinist Tiana Dela Cruz took six months to compose the score for “Cowboy Bebop.”
