The Arigat and Asian (or Asia) Philharmonic Orchestras are two symphony orchestras. The music for the pre-rendered cutscenes in Metroid: Other M was recorded live by both orchestras, with the Arigat-Orchestra session being recorded in Tokyo, Japan, and the Asian Philharmonic Orchestra's in Beijing, China.[1][2] In Other M, Arigat is stylized as the ARIGAT-ORCHESTRA. It has primarily orchestrated film music, such as Jet Li's Fearless. The Asian Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in Japan in 1997 by Myung-Whun Chung, a Korean-American music director who desired to unite Asian countries such as China, Japan and Korea through music.
