In Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind at about 49:48, a sort of techno-electric music plays that I find really enjoyable. Problem is, I cannot find this anywhere on the internet, or even in the official soundtrack of Nausicaa. Could someone help me identify it?

1 Answer 1


The soundtrack for Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind was composed by Japanese composer Joe Hisaishi. There are various different dubs of the film (even a terrible US re-edit called Windriders I believe) and there may be slight differences between the different dubs. That said the majority of the soundtrack appears to be on Spotify and/or Apple Music



According to Wikipedia numerous version of the soundtrack have been released.

The film's score was composed by Joe Hisaishi, while the vocal theme song "Kaze no Tani no Naushika" was produced by Haruomi Hosono (Yellow Magic Orchestra and Happy End member) and sung by Narumi Yasuda.[54] Numerous soundtracks and albums relating to the film have been released.[55]

Somewhere in all this I suspect you should be able to pinpoint the piece you are looking for.

  • Given the fact that it's a techno-sounding track, I'm going to guess it's in the Hi-Tech series. Thanks! Commented Jan 11, 2021 at 23:00
