"Sakamoto’s score turns the concept of fashion into music by taking the sound of fabrics rubbing against each other as a central inspiration for the soundtrack. Unsettling motifs, sweeping hisses, and reverberating electronics form a subdued and timeless world of mystery.
Sakamoto’s score as a standalone work, however, yields intrigue. The soundtrack opens with a piercing piano chord, layered above a steady swish that glides beneath a choppy melody. “The Staggering Girl” moves at a glacial pace; time feels as if it’s been suspended in an eternity. Electronic sounds emerge and disappear from nowhere as the sound of voices echo like they’re trapped underwater, and loose rhythmic scratching accompanies a descent into a plaintive violin melody.
This type of lush ambience is met by a severely contrasting style on “Toni,” where violins pluck in a precisely syncopated rhythm that’s matched by deafening silence. Fragmented melodies and stilted motifs are central to the score, but here, bluntness takes the center stage. Throughout the soundtrack, violins pick up many of the thematic ideas, most notable the creepy sliding theme of “Night Garden.” This motif is uneven and bogged down in its slow pace, but it’s undeniably memorable. A sense of meditative connectivity between thematic ideas binds the soundtrack together." (TheRoadtoSound)
