RYUICHI SAKAMOTO

async (2 Vinyl LPs)

Ref: FSL7060


Price: 64.99

Double vinyl album comes with bonus track. First solo album for eight years. Recorded mostly in New York but utilizes field recordings and museum material from around the world. The album plays with 'ideas of a-synchronism, prime numbers, chaos, quantum physics and the blurred lines of life and artificiality/noise and music.' According to Sakamoto he conceived the idea of writing for a Andrei Tarkovsky film that does not exist, and at the same time taking 'inspiration from everyday objects, sculpture and nature.' It apparently includes piano and orchestra, as well as 'unique acoustic and electric sounds, both programmed and organic.' It is also described as one of Sakamoto's most 'personal albums'.

Nippon no Hito (Vinyl) (Limited Edition)

Ref: FSL7071


Price: 39.99

Vinyl editiion, originally released in 1991. HIS (Hosono, Imawano, Sakamoto) were a trio featuring Haruomi Hosono, Kiyoshiro Imawano and Fuyumi Sakamoto. This album came out at the height of the 'world music' boom in Japan and was a kind of take by three famous musicians, (Hosono is best known as a member of YMO and Imawano with RC Succession) on what is Japanese music in the context of the wider world. There's a lot of humour involved with their 'ondo' version of Purple Haze and on other tracks, mostly perfromed acoustically. They got together to perform again in 2006 and orginally emerged from a different version of the trio without Hosono, called SMI. Watch video of Yozora no Chikai with interview.
