Akira Ifukube was born in Hokkaido, Japan May 31, 1914 and died on February 8, 2006. He is very well known to Toho fans for his scores to most of the Godzilla films. He was a prolific and well known composer in Japan with a status similar to that of John Williams or Jerry Goldsmith in the United States. Mr. Ifukube is responsible for the many memorable marches and action pieces heard in the original 1954 "Godzilla" film as well as many to follow and in other films from Toho studios. Besides film scores Mr. Ifukube has written many orchestral and native folk pieces of music.
