Canaan OST

March 7, 2010

Canaan OST

Finally, I got a chance to listen to this soundtrack that I’ve been anticipating for such a long time! The number of tracks is massive, yet quantity also matches quality.

Many of the tracks feature mysterious themes or very high-tension atmosphere that is quite scary. Some of the tracks might not seem very impressive by themselves, but they fit perfectly with the animation.

Chinese and Middle Eastern flavors (there is even a track with Yunyun’s masterpiece she played at the restaurant😛 ), acoustic guitar, piano, strings, and many weird sounds are some of the features you can hear on this soundtrack. These four tracks represent some of the categories:

2.21 Minorikawa Minoru no Ketsui

This track was featured in the episode eight about Hakko’s past. So sad T_T

2.23 KANAN no Soba ni…

Nice acoustic guitar track🙂

2.27 Me wo Tojite no Sentou

This is one of the many high-tension tracks.

2.31 Futari no Canaan

The main theme is excellent with, probably, over a dozen variations on this OST. This one is my favorite.

  1. 🙂 another one who’s fallen for CANAAN’s OST, no??

    i really loved the main theme and all it’s variations, especially Disc3’s “Alphard” track, you could feel the driving intensity and it totally fit that particular scene where alphard & canaan were fighting on top of the train.

    Last year was THE year for Nanase Hikaru-san, I was really happy with Requiem for the Phantom and Canaan’s OSTs.

    But, the “duet” between Santana & Minoru is missing… (not that i want a repeat hearing, but it was fun). come to think of it, so was Taxi Driver’s version of Nene’s song😛

    I kinda miss the Taxi Driver😦


    • Yes, I did! haha

      Indeed, Alphard is a very long and intense track🙂

      She is great: composer and singer! Kanno sings better though😛

      haha Yes, it was a fun duet🙂 Taxi Driver was something🙂


  2. music that resembles wind: a soft breeze, an ominous storm, currents of ‘battle’ wind, no wind at all…


    • That’s awesome!🙂 It sounds so familiar, but I can’t quite recall where it is from…


      • ehm *blush* I didn’t copy anyone…it’s mine…


        • Oh, that is impressive! You have talent for writing🙂 Still can’t figure out what it reminds me of.


  3. […] a comment to previous post, Ayame written a wonderful stanza that sounded very familiar, but I couldn’t […]


  4. The more I think about Canaan the more I realize that I loved that series! The OST is really good, I will definitely have to check out the rest of this massive soundtrack!
    The last video you posted (2.31 Futari no Canaan) was definitely my favourite of the bunch.


    • It was a fun series – I especially enjoyed directing, cast, and music🙂

      Yes, the last track is my favorite as well🙂
