Who is the music composer for Escaflowne?

I think the music composer for Escaflowne was Yoko something?? I am wondering what other anime this person composed music for? Thanks!

Kanno Youko (or Yoko Kanno as credited in the U.S.) has composed for a wide variety of anime productions including, but not limited to:

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Cowboy Bebop
Wolf's Rain
Turn-A Gundam
RahXephon

just a few off the top of my head... I remember there are some rabid fans of Yoko Kanno here on Animesuki--they'll take good care of the rest

I guess I could call myself a rabid Yoko Kanno fan, but my knowledge doesn't extend further than these two and the five above

Yes, OP to Record of Lodoss war is great. Anything Youko is great. Napple Tale eh? No! my collection must be complete. Youko is too versatile...I'm humbled. Jin-Roh OST is amazing, especially if you liked the movie. Any news on a new project for Youko?

I read she's been working on the OST for the Cowboy Beebop PS2 game which comes out later this year. Aside from the GITS soundtracks she's also contributed to the music for 'Mnd Game' a new film from Studio4c, the people behind Tweeny Witches, but I don't know anything about the movie.

The Escaflowne soundtrack was also co-produced by Hajime Mizoguchi, who actually had the lead position in the composition of the Jin-Roh soundtrack.

She's also done soundtracks for live action tv shows, one is called 23時の音楽 (23ji no ongaku) for a show called something like "On the Other Side of Midnight." Can't say I've seen the show, but I bought the soundtrack sight-unseen. It's got several songs with vocals by Maaya Sakamoto as well, with several in English. My personal fave from that CD is the first track, Two Things, which is just damn smooth.
