Booklet Onderscheidingen The Qobuz Ideal Discography
Neo Geo innovator and international musical collaborator Ryuichi Sakamoto has run the gamut in his lengthy career, from the Kraftwerk-inspired work of the Yellow Magic Orchestra and a handful of high-profile soundtracks, to several solo albums and various guest spots with Arto Lindsay, David Sylvian, Thomas Dolby, and Public Image Ltd., among many others. And on the heels of the YMO's breakup in 1983, Sakamoto jumped right into the fray with this soundtrack to director Nagisa Oshima's Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence (Sakamoto also co-starred along with David Bowie). While not as sophisticated as the music he wrote for The Sheltering Sky and The Last Emperor (a collaboration with David Byrne), Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence does sport one of Sakamoto's most fetching pieces, "ForbiddenColours" (given many treatments, including a fine David Sylvian vocal version), and a few successful Asian and Western classical hybrids. Unfortunately, though, the music often bogs down in bloated, synth-washed musings and staid rhythmic underpinnings. Not the best introduction to Sakamoto's work, but certainly worth a cut-out bin price for the lovely variations on "Forbidden Colours." © Stephen Cook /TiVo

Ryuichi Sakamoto was one of Japan's innovators in electronic pop with the group Yellow Magic Orchestra, and he later established himself as a world-class composer, winning an Academy Award for his score for the film The Last Emperor. But Sakamoto's evocative music can be just as effective on a smaller scale, and on the album Playing the Piano, he performs 12 pieces -- some new, some new interpretations of older works -- that have been arranged for solo acoustic piano. Several tracks from the Japanese albums 04 and 05 have been included in this collection. © Mark Deming /TiVo

Async is Ryuichi Sakamoto's first solo album since being diagnosed with throat cancer, which put his career on hold for much of 2014 and 2015. After treatment and a full year of recovery, he composed the acclaimed score to Alejandro G. Iñárritu's film The Revenant (which also featured contributions from Raster-Noton co-founder Alva Noto and Bryce Dessner of the National) before working on this album. He cites nature, everyday objects, and sculptures as influences on async, and its pieces incorporate recordings from various outdoor locations as well as museums, including a sound sculpture designed by Harry Bertoia. In addition to Sakamoto's piano playing and electronic processing, async features intimately recorded acoustic instruments (including a shamisen and a singing bowl), guitar/laptop wizardry from Christian Fennesz, and orchestral elements. The album is focused on combining musical as well as non-musical sounds, and it seems to function as scenes from daily life as well as musical compositions. As the album's title suggests, the individual parts of most of the album's pieces move at different rhythms or intervals, making them seem random at first. "Distintegration" is a prime example of this, beginning with John Cage-inspired prepared pianos and adding a steady high-pitched click, before light, immersive synthesizer washes transform the piece from sounding alien to soothing. As academic and non-emotional as all this might seem, Sakamoto still approaches his work from a human perspective, and there's more melody than there might appear on the surface. The album might be sparse, but it isn't hollow. "Solari" is a dark, hazy cloud of drifting melodies and deep organ tones, which are eventually joined by soft chords that sound like echoes of a faded Beach Boys tune. It's a bit eerie and haunting, but at the same time it's calm, familiar, and even comforting. "Stakra" is centered around a cascading synth sequence, which feels light and heavenly, but it's surrounded by deep bass thumps and fragmented glitches. Two tracks feature spoken poems reflecting on life, dreams, and death. "Life, Life" includes David Sylvian's reading of "And This I Dreamt, and This I Dream" by Arseny Tarkovsky, and "fullmoon" features a collage of several voices reciting Paul Bowles' "The Sheltering Sky" in different languages. Async is certainly not one of Sakamoto's most accessible albums, but if the listener is willing to devote several listens until it all makes sense, it ends up being quite powerful. © Paul Simpson /TiVo

Booklet
Even though his score Furyo de Nagisa Oshima has since entered into legend (closely followed by that of The Last Emperor by Bernardo Bertolucci), Ryuichi Sakamoto has worked with many other filmmakers, including Pedro Almodóvar and Brian De Palma. With The Revenant, he adds Alejandro González Iñárritu to his growing list. The Mexican director used his work World Citizen (co-written with David Sylvian) in his film Babel back in 2006, but had never placed an order for a complete score. For this long, flamboyant film - in which blood and violence feature heavily - Sakamoto takes the opposite direction with his music: slow and progressive themes; sublime soundscapes. This contemplative mood, which can at times be oppressive, was designed by Sakamoto with the help of a colleague, spawning electronic music with which he also works regularly. American Bryce Dessner also features, guitarist of indie band The National and also a contemporary music composer. Together, the three musicians sculpt a masterful score, combining acoustic and electronic, and, like all great soundtracks, it can be enjoyed with eyes closed. ©MZ/Qobuz

This short film directed by Luca Guadagnino (Oscar-nominated in 2018 for Call Me By Your Name) tells the story of a disagreement between Francesca (Julianne Moore) and her mother, renowned painter Sophia Moretti (Marthe Keller). In the Italian house where the latter lives a reclusive existence, ghosts from Francesca’s youth come back in an ultimate assault of pain, memory and blossoming. Ghosts go hand in hand with intangibility: with ethereal timbres (on strings and piano) and descending harmonies, the half-scary-half-melancholic music of Ryuichi Sakamoto (Furyo) effectively translates the supernatural aspect of the film while still managing to pay tribute to Psycho and Vertigo’s Bernard Herrmann. But this brilliant score by the Japanese composer doesn’t stop at confronting ghosts of the past. This is a very material work of music, literally: he plays with and uses different fabrics. Produced with Valentino artistic director Pierpaolo Piccioli, The Staggering Girl gave Sakamoto the opportunity to use clothes samples from the fashion house in order to brush them together in different ways in front of highly sensitive microphones. Tracks like The Staggering Girl and Woman in Yellow show this technique in different ways, making Ryuichi Sakamoto one of the most inventive composers of his generation. Quite the opposite of these sensual and supernatural notions, the soundtrack closes with the shining Dance, which features glamourous strings and a minimalist piano. A conclusion to bring you back to present day life. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

The title couldn’t make it clearer: Back To The Basics! For Ryuichi Sakamoto, the basics revolved simply performing on the piano. Initially released for the in 1999, this album celebrates its twentieth anniversary with a remastered version in Hi-Res 24-Bit. Putting aside his pop and electro past, on BTTB Sakamoto primarily concentrates on his own influences and on his musical upbringing ranging from Bach to Satie, the American minimalists and traditional music from around the world. He alternates contemplative impressionism (Opus) and avant-garde (Prelude). He records a new rendition of past hits Tong Poo once played by his pop band Yellow Magic Orchestra. Thanks to Ryuichi Sakamoto’s subtle interpretation, full of silence and space, the album’s eclectic nature remains consistent. A magnificent record. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz
