Ryuichi Sakamoto
Proxima (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The multi-award-winning and universally acclaimed producer and composer Ryuichi Sakamoto delivers his original score for Alice Winocour’s upcoming movie Proxima, presented on vinyl and soundtracking the story of a French astronaut whose year-long mission in space will separate her from her young daughter. 

Ryuichi Sakamoto
The Staggering Girl

The Staggering Girl is a new film directed by Luca Guadagnino (A Bigger Splash, Call Me By Your Name). It stars Julianne Moore and Kyle McLachlan. In a very sensible move, he’s asked renowned, multi award-winning Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto to score the film, because, well, why wouldn’t you? In his lifetime, Sakamoto was a founding member of Yellow Magic Orchestra and has worked with David Sylvian, among others.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Thousand Knives Of

A timely re-issue of the first solo album from the legendary Ryuichi Sakamoto. 'Thousand Knives Of' was originally released back in 1978, when Sakamoto was still in the equally groundbreaking Yellow Magic Orchestra, and established a blueprint for both artists going forward. Notably, this is the first time that the record is being released on vinyl outside of Japan. 

Ryuichi Sakamoto
BTTB (20th Anniversary Edition)

Milan deliver more splendid material from the one and only Ryuichi Sakamoto, this time in the form of a twentieth anniversary reissue. Hitherto elusive outside Japan, BTTB (a.k.a. Back to the Basics) mainly consists of solo piano pieces of an artful and generally gentle contemporary classical persuasion. There’s a bit of prepared piano and what sounds like a hydrophone recording as well.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Ikari (Rage) (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Ryuichi Sakamoto is often unfairly lumped in with ‘composers’ like Luke Howard, Olafur Arnalds and Ludovici Einaudi. He manages to distinguish himself from those charlatans by not being absolutely dreadful. His considered brand of post-minimalist music-making has always seemed well-suited to the big screen, and his score for 2016 Korean flick Ikari (Rage) plays to his strengths. Strings, pianos, lots of reverb, that sort of thing.

async - Remodels

Japanese electronic music legend and former Yellow Magic Orchestra member Ryuichi Sakamoto's 2017 album 'async' graced numerous end of year lists. An all-star cast of remixers have been assembled to re-work the material in their own distinctive visions; Arca, Fennesz, Oneohtrix Point Never, Motion Graphics, Alva Noto, Yves Tumor, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Cornelius and S U R V I V E. 

Ryuichi Sakamoto
async

‘async’ is the latest album by Ryuichi Sakamoto. This release shows us how far he has come and how far he is willing to go to break the boundaries of different sounds and textures. A fifteen-track masterpiece that brings together classical, neo-classical and orchestral music. Available on Vinyl Double LP and CD.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence

Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence was a 1983 film focused around prisoners of war in Japan, which starred David Bowie. Ryuichi Sakamoto’s soundtrack garnered a fair amount more attention than the film itself, winning a BAFTA, which is fair enough with it’s incredibly unique instrumentation and dynamics. Features David Sylvian’s lyrics and vocals on Forbidden Colors.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Nagasaki: Memories Of My Son

Ryuichi Sakamoto should be familiar to fans of several different strands of sound, having done crucial work as part of Yellow Magic Orchestra, some explorative collaborations with Fennesz, and many years of sensitive film soundtrack work. This most recent release falls into the latter camp, being the accompaniment to Yoji Yamada’s Nagasaki: Memories Of My Son. Lush and fully orchestrated. Released by Milan.

Willits + Sakamoto
Ancient Future

Like fish and chips, cheese and tomato, sausages and mash, pianist Christopher Willits and composer Ryuichi Sakamoto seem born to go together. Ancient Future was their second collaboration and is a six track song cycle made up of tracks Sakamoto sent to Willits as embryonic piano sketches. The theme is the acceptance of one's fate and the lessons we can learn from life. Big questions but soundtracked exquisitely by these masters of their genres.
