WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

If Ryuichi Sakamoto had been born in 16th century Italy, we'd know what to call him: a Renaissance Man. But since he was born in Japan in the mid-20th century, we have to string together words like composer, musician, producer, actor, and environmental activist. It's a diverse résumé, but there are two things that match it: one is Sakamoto's music - pioneering electronic works, globally-inspired rock, classical scores and massive operas. Sakamoto's legions of fans will have a new special 2-CD package to savor on September 28th (Decca Label Group): the two albums, Playing the Piano and Out of Noise, present a wide-ranging view into the world of this legendary artist. Ryuichi Sakamoto will make a rare North American solo tour in October/November, bringing his music to audiences through sustainable and ecologically sound touring. In addition, a carbon offset will be made for all carbon dioxide emissions resulting from the tour.
