Neon Genesis Evangelion: Symphonic Orchestra Live (1997) [KILA 339]

Watched this yesterday, and it was mostly what I was expecting (nice music, snippets of anime footage shown on the concert screen, some words from the voice actors), and then there was the rap break during Pachelbel's Canon. Didn't see that one coming. And then during the curtain call the rapper's the one who introduces Shiro Sagisu (in English). I was wondering what this dude's story was, but a cursory web search brought up the track listing on the EvaGeeks wiki and basically nothing besides. "Canon and Gigue in D Major: String Quintet & Rap," Pachelbel/Sagisu/MALI, with "MALI" matching the katakana in the video.

Wild stuff; you really never know what you'll come across with blind purchases.

A quick YouTube search finds this video on which one of the the first comment is from the artist himself ;-)



That would be Andrew Allen but no more info after that I could find.

I was going to say, "Guess I should have read the YouTube comments," but I can't bring myself to. :lol:

More info I found pertaining to this concert, one of the singers in the Fly Me to the Moon arrangement, Lorrain Briscoe, is also the original singer of Thanatos in the End of Evangelion mid-credits.
