After the Second World War, he began a celebrated (though short-lived) association with the pre-eminent Japanese director Akira Kurosawa.

Among the films Hayasaka scored for Kurosawa are Stray Dog (1949), Rashomon (1950) and The Seven Samurai (1954). During his time in Tokyo, Hayasaka also wrote several notable concert works including Ancient Dances of the Left and on the Right (1941), a Piano Concerto and the orchestral suite Yukara (1955). Hayasaka served as a musical mentor to both Masaru Satō and Tōru Takemitsu. In 1955, Hayasaka died of tuberculosis at the age of 41. Read more on Last.fm.
