Hi,

A fellow Swedish fan mailed me about this (so it's NOT my own research - I don't think he's active in the fandom, though) which ought to interest some of you. He's into "production music", and has managed to identify two of the so-called library tracks from the 1st season BGM.

The first is the scene from ep. 46 when Luna and Artemis are talking on the roof of the Tsukino house while darkness descends -- see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAejCcmjdls (the music playing at 3:03-3:54).
The track in question is called 'Light is Knowledge', composed by Jan Pulsford. You can listen to it at http://www.unippm.se/#/browse/browsed-r ... ctedCDId=5 (click track #14; the music heard in the scene starts at about 1:00).

The second, the music heard briefly at the beginning of ep. 41 when Reika is studying fossils in Africa -- see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkNgm9Wd9Hc (1:57-2:16).
This track is 'Hill Station' by David Hentschel. See http://www.unippm.se/#/browse/browsed-r ... tedCDId=19 (click track #25).

I mailed Jan Pulsford and asked about it. UPPM, Universal Publishing Production Music, used to be BMG Music Publishing; according to her they've purchased and reissued a lot of music like this over the years for use in film/TV productions. It would seem to me it's a pretty safe bet that much - if not all - of the library music Toei used for Sailor Moon, originates from BMG/UPPM.

I'm still looking for the Kaolinite battle theme.
I think I've found it... :mrgreen:
Check out http://www.unippm.se/#/browse/browsed-r ... ctedCDId=3 and click track #1, 'Symmetry of Spirit'. Sounds rather familiar from about 0:20.

But that's not all -- on the same page, click track #17, 'Summit of Power'.
Yeah, we all know that one.

That is my absolute favorite studio music and you have definitely found it! You are a god among men.

*needs to make room on harddrive for all this music.*


On a similiar note, it won't let me register unless I live in Nordic countries.

Edit: anyway, Anyone want me to save any of this and upload em as mp3s?

Probably it would be a good idea to email the info to the owner of sailormusic.net. There is a list of unreleased music pieces on the site.
agreed and hopefully this means one can have every piece of music that ever played on sm if they want :ohmy:

I can't believe I didn't notice this thread until now. These are awesome finds, I've been wanting clean versions of some of these for years :D .

I dug around that site and found a couple of extra ones:

The beginning of this track plays in episode 95 when the girls are dancing with the fake daimons. It's track #18, Tempest:
http://www.unippm.se/#/browse/browsed-r ... tedCDId=10

This one plays in ep 147 when they are at the dance. Track #25, Daytrip:
http://www.unippm.se/#/browse/browsed-r ... tedCDId=11


I'm STILL looking for the one in 158 when Chibiusa is riding on Pegasus and it plays that eerie music. I couldn't find it anywhere on that site. :sad: If anyone stumbles upon it I'll give you some :cookie: :cookie: :cookie:


But anyway, GREAT find Rosen :D

I would love...love love love the music that's played when Luna begins to tell the soldiers about the Moon Kingdom for the first time after the battle with Kunzite. *edit* Nevermind, I listened to track 19 as listed above and THAT is it! So happy! It would be a dream to have these pieces in MP3 form : )

awww! I want to download it :(
If you're talking about the Luna and Artemis one, it's Light of Knowledge from my other post.

I can convert anything else you might need into MP3 as well :cool:

It's a bit funny to me how many of these studio library pieces stuck out in my mind when I was watching the first season uncut for the first time when the ADV boxed sets came out. I had pretty much given up hope of ever having them on CD or Mp3 form and low, about a decade later and here we are. I bet there are some other hardcore moonies around the world that would like to get their hands on these as well. Perhaps Sailormusic.net will upload them?
