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 - performed by Brussels Philharmonic and conducted by Dirk Brossé
Music for Film

Ryuichi Sakamoto has a hell of a repertoire when it comes to film soundtracks, so it is only right and proper that he was honoured by the Brussels Philharmonic at the World Soundtrack Awards this year. This suite of Sakamoto’s finest accompaniments stretches from the classic ‘Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence’ right up to ‘The Revenant’, all newly performed.

Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto
Two (Live at Sydney Opera House)

Sydney Opera house. I mean will you just look at it. it's impressive enough even without the knowledge that Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto performed there in 2018. If you weren't lucky enough to be there you can now hear their performance on this beautifully presented LP or CD. The duo have been working together for some time now and here Alva Noto's pulsating electronics contrasting perfectly with Ryuichi Sakamoto's haunting neo-classicism on a document both artists are pleased enough to unleash to the public at large.

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.

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.

Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto
The Revenant

Erstwhile film soundtrack composer Ryuichi Sakamoto is joined by strict digital minimalist Alva Noto, a frequent collaborator in Sakamoto’s non-soundtrack work. For the Leonardo DiCaprio film The Revenant, the pair fold together dramatic orchestral themes and cold electronic ambience: from listening, I feel like The Revenant might be a tense watch.

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.
