New Sounds

With Ryuichi Sakamoto

Saturday, January 26, 2013

Ryuichi Sakamoto,, the Japanese-born, New York-based pianist, producer, film score composer, and electronic music pioneer is also a citizen of the world, and his travels to Greenland’s ice fields to study the effects of climate change can be felt in his latest work, sometimes literally.  Sakamoto captured sounds in disparate locations such as under the sea and on top of a glacier to create the minimal ambient works that make up part of his double CD, "Playing the Piano/Out of Noise." (Both CDs were released separately in Japan in 2009.)
