I’ve always believed Shiro Sagisu to channel John Williams’ orchestral style in Evangelion 3.0 - his work on Star Wars in particular.

Evangelion 3.0 follows a very similar structure to The Empire Strikes back, in both a thematic and visual sense, as well as a matter of pacing (more on that later), and the soundtrack goes along with its many parallels.

This track more than any other showcases the adventure, foreboding, and grandeur of such epic stories filling in the dark middle act in their respective series.

Neon Genesis Evangelion - Theatrical Trailer
Featuring ‘NERV’ and 'Thanatos’ from Evangelion Symphony, performed by the New Japan Philharmonic and composed by Shiro Sagisu.

This is the spiritual successor to the previous 'To Build a Home’ Neon Genesis Evangelion Teaser Trailer. With this one, I aimed to portray the emotional intensity of the series for the uninitiated and fans alike, whereas with 'To Build a Home’, I was focused on the emotional intimacy.

In Neon Genesis Evangelion, the stakes could not be greater.
