Forbidden Colours – A Tribute to Ryuichi Sakamoto

Dave von Low Light Mixes mit einem Tribute-Mix, der das musikalische Schaffen von Ryuichi Sakamoto sammelt und ehren soll. Passt.

Another musical great has left this world. Ryuichi Sakamoto was a founding member of Yellow Magic Orchestra. He became well known for his neo-classical work, his collaborations, and of course his film scores, from Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence to The Revenant to the Oscar-winning score for The Last Emperor. The solo piano version of Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence is one of my favorite piano pieces ever written.

In January of this year he released an album of piano tracks, called 12, that is hauntingly simple and beautiful.

In 2017 he recorded a track called „Life, Life“, from the album Async, that is one of my favorite pieces of all time. I’d like to finish this post with the spoken word poem that appears in that track…
