Ryuichi Sakamoto Playing the Piano and Out of Noise

September 1, 2010

ryuchi_nr450The innovator hits us with two new albums in one. Playing the Piano is a taste of the composer’s haunting solo piano pieces, including some of his famous film themes and earlier works. Out of Noise does a 180, taking us on an electronic exploration of the questions “What is music?” and “What is noise?” Packaged together in an all-encompassing view into the musician and eco-activist, the albums are a glimpse into another reality impossible to turn off.
