Hiroyuki Sawano (澤野 弘之, Sawano Hiroyuki, born September 12, 1980)[1] is a Japanese composer, arranger, lyricist, pianist, and Music Producer best known for his work on many anime series, video games, television dramas, and movies. His works include the musical scores for Attack on Titan, The Seven Deadly Sins, Blue Exorcist, Guilty Crown, Kill la Kill, Seraph of the End, and Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn.[2] In addition to his role on the soundtrack, he also composes opening and ending theme songs for several series.[3] Overall, he has already provided the music for over 100 visual media works.[4]

Sawano was nominated for the Newtype Anime Awards 11 times, winning 4 of the nominations.[5] He has also won the Tokyo Anime Award three times,[5][6] as well as two recent prizes at the Anime Trending Awards.[7] He was represented by Legendoor between 2006 and 2017, and is currently represented by VV-ALKLINE.[8] In 2014, he started a vocal project under the name ''SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]''.[9]

Biography[edit]

1980–2003: Early life[edit]

Sawano was born in Tokyo, Japan. He began playing piano in elementary school. By this time, he was influenced by the Japanese singer-songwriter Aska, from the duo Chage and Aska, whose songs led him to vaguely dream about working in music. In junior high school, he joined a band and began learning keyboard, to take charge of it in the group.[10]

From the age of 17, Sawano studied composition, arrangement, and orchestration under the music teacher Nobuchika Tsuboi.[11] When he was in his final years of high school, he had a desire to work on soundtrack music, so he went to a vocational school focused in composition.[10] In this same school, he made his first public music performance.[12] Around this period, he used to listen to the soundtrack of Studio Ghibli's movies, which led him to be influenced by the film score composer Joe Hisaishi.[10]

2004–present: Career[edit]

Sawano's musician career started in 2004, with songs written for other artists. In 2006, he was in charge of his first soundtrack works, being active as a composer since then.[2][13]

In 2010, with Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, he had his first involvement in a major work, which he mentioned having worked on it with the hope that this series would trigger an offer for many further projects.[10]

In 2011, with his involvement in two popular anime series—Blue Exorcist and Guilty Crown—, he became more notable in the industry. In both series, he also managed to build up a relationship with some vocalists, whom would collaborate with him in future works.[14]

It was in 2013, with his role as the composer for the anime adaptation of Hajime Isayama's manga series Attack on Titan, that pushed him into acknowledgement.[14] In this year, for his work on the series, he won the Newtype Anime Awards in the Soundtrack category.[15]

In 2014, he launched a vocal song project under the name "SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]", producing the first album UnChild with Aimer as the vocalist under the name SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:Aimer.[16][17] Since then his songs under this vocal song project have also been used as the opening and ending themes for various anime, including Aldnoah.Zero, Seraph of the End, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn RE:0096, The Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These Kaikō, and Re:Creators. Sawano's vocal song project was moved to the Sacra Music record label under Sony Music Entertainment Japan, in April 2017.[18]

On July 2, 2017, Sawano's contract with Legendoor was terminated after approximately 12 years.[19] He is now represented by VV-ALKLINE.[20]

In 2020, Sawano started a soundtrack revival project called "Project【emU】", where he arranges a suite for the soundtrack of anime series he has been involved with.[21] The suites are recorded and filmed in a studio, with guest musicians and vocalists, and uploaded on Sawano's YouTube channel, having already been released the ones for Attack on Titan, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, Guilty Crown, and The Seven Deadly Sins.[22] In February 2021, he made a "Project【emU】" concert event, "Sawano Hiroyuki LIVE【emU】2021", in which he performed many of the main tracks from the anime scores he was in charge.[23]

On March 13, 2022, Sawano held the solo live "Hiroyuki Sawano LIVE [nZk]007", at Tokyo International Forum. The event featured the guest vocals Akihito Okano, Jean-Ken Johnny, ReoNa, mizuki, mpi, Benjamin, Laco, and SennaRin.[24] Later, on April 23, the live was streamed to overseas audiences.[25]

On September 1, 2022, Sawano announced his new musical group NAQT VANE, in which he will act as total producer and will collaborate with singer Harukaze and Classic 6 as design director. The debut single, "Break Free", will be released on September 16, 2022. [26]

Musical style and influences[edit]

Sawano cited Joe Hisaishi, Yoko Kanno, Hans Zimmer, and Danny Elfman as major inspirations.[27]

His pieces tend to have exceedingly strange titles, featuring numbers, symbols, and letters from various different alphabets. He stated that he decided this so the people "is able to listen to the songs in their own way and have their own reaction. I don’t ever want to fix the image of what’s happening on-screen too much within the track title".[21]

He often uses choruses and breaks in his pieces, aiming to expand the song and make it more intense.[28]

Sawano's vocal songs, in addition to Japanese, also feature lyrics in English and German,[29] being performed by singers from different nationalities.[30]

When composing for series, he usually writes the music before any video materials or animation is available.[28]
