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 alw...view item »

Alva Noto + Ryuichi Sakamoto

Fans of stylish minimalist ambience can rejoice as the heroic duo of Nicolai and Sakamoto return on a release that's as much sound art as composition. This conceptual performance took place in a glass structure in September 2016, and is thankfully documented in all its calm, elegant glory, released on the ever g...view item »

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 d...view item »

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Thousand Knives / Plastic Bamboo

Ryuichi Sakamoto: the Japanese musician known for his masterful film soundtracks, his delicate piano music and his Yellow Magic Orchestra alike. Here we get yet another side of Sakamoto’s skills, with a pair of wild and funky electronic pop tunes from the 80’s, originally released on...view item »

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 C...view item »

Sakamoto / Reich / Satie
re:works Vol. 1

A happy cross-cultural mix-up here on this new Decca series. The re:works are the results of letting contemporary producers get stuck into the Decca Classics catalogue, so you get Martin Buttrich on Erik Satie(!), Patrice Bäumel on Steve Reich and Francesco...view item »

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 DiCapri...view item »

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.

Ryuichi Sakamoto / Illuha / Taylor Deupree

Recorded live at a performance to mark the 10th anniversary of The Yamaguchi Centre for Arts and Media, ‘Perpetual’ is a first time collaboration between four legendary Japanese musicians Ryuichi Sakamoto, Taylor Deupree and the duo AKA Illuha, Corey Fuller and Tomoyoshi Date. Presented in three movements ranging from layers of soft ...view item »

Ryuichi Sakamoto

Ryuichi Sakamoto super-imposes different tones and aesthetics onto one another to make the crestfallen clusterfuck that is Bircolages. Through smooth, old-school synth sounds and pastoral samples he crafts an earthy kind of EDM that sounds indebted to both folk and vaporwave -- at the same time, though, he use...view item »

Ryuichi Sakamoto

This is a re-issue of Sakamoto's 1996 (natch) album where new and old compositions are arranged in stripped down violin and piano style. Its unremittingly glorious and within the first 6 tracks yiou can hear some of Sakamoto's best and well known works, 'Rain' sparkles in this guise if never quite approaching the doomy majesty of the origin...view item »

Ryuichi Sakamoto + Taylor Deupree

Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto

Don't know if this will help massage me back to full blistering health. A CD on the esteemed Raster Noton imprint. Yes the uber minimal techno label has the 3rd collaboration out between Alva Noto & the legendary Ryuichi Sakamoto. From what I can derive, this is sparse & beautiful classical piano over sporadic pu...view item »

Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto With Ensemble Modern

Fennesz/ Sakamoto

The second Fennesz Sakamoto collaboration 'Cendre' is out now on Touch. You probably know what to expect here. The Japanese piano master Ryuchi Sakamoto tinkles on the old ivories to produce ultra chilled bliss while Mr Fennesz pulls out his electronic boxes and field recordings. This reminds me of a Harold Budd and Brian Eno album I was listening ...view item »
