Composer Filmography


Best known for his work on the Ultraman series, Kunio Miyauchi actually trained not to be a composer initially, but a trumpet player. Unfortunately, due to Tuberculosis, Miyauchi was unable to pursue this dream and instead shifted his focus toward a career as a composer. His early work was primarily in radio before he moved on to film scoring in 1960. His first two scores were for the Toho movies Submission to the President's Glorious Wife and The Human Vapour. He continued scoring films up until the mid-1960's, when Miyauchi made the shift toward television with the show Ultra Q. From that point on Miyauchi would primarily stay in the realm of television and movies related to those characters, only briefly returning to do a full score for Toho's All Monsters Attack (1969).
