Ryuichi Sakamoto has a vast range of musical endeavors; from pioneering early electronic music in his ﬁrst group; Yellow Magic Orchestra, to globally-inspired rock albums, classical compositions, and over twenty ﬁlm scores including Merry Christmas, Mr. Laurence, The Last Emporer and Little Buddha. almost as expansive is his array of prestigious awards; an Academy Award, two Golden Globes, a Grammy.
During his first live tour in japan carsten nicolai met ryuichi sakamoto in tokyo. a year after it happened that he was asked to remix material from sakamoto for the japanese magazine Code Unfinished.
“… the material that was given to me was already layered with digital effects. from one little clean piano piece i made the first track. those simple piano chords i combined with a clear rhythm constellation. … somehow ryuichi was very surprised and really liked my work. weeks later he sent me another specially for this project recorded track.”
