Synopsis

A live performance film capturing an intimate concert by composer, pianist and music producer Ryuichi Sakamoto in New York City. The performance marked the first public unveiling of Sakamoto’s new opus, async, hailed as one of the best albums of 2017 by Rolling Stone and Pitchfork.

Our take

As a special treat after our release of Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda is this sensorial immersion into a rare concert experience. Watch the great composer perform the debut of his latest musical masterpiece, with accompanying video imagery by Shiro Takatani and experimental filmmaker Takashi Makino.
