Ryuichi Sakamoto has cancer of the throat and I'm kind of sad seeing as how I lost my dad last year to cancer and I fucking love Ryuichi Sakamoto, and pretty much all his projects from YMO to his Alva Noto collabs.
Anyways, here's one of my favorites from his album Futurista
h-he also did the soundtrack to Wings of Honneamise
yea look him up. he's been in a wide range of stuff.
yea it kinda sucks. i know hes older but hes not super old or anything. i guess hes not doing treatment which sucks
I like his pianos.
BTTB album is great.
I remember the quality wasn't this poor... I have the mp3 saved on the computer but I wish there was a better video somewhere.
Ryuichifags, recommend me a good introductory album for YMO and one for Ryuichi solo.
If that helps, I like Kraftwerk and Jean-Michel Jarre.
And on Ryuichi, I love his "Solitude" song, the only one I know.
Sad to know he's got cancer, was he a smoker?
his solo album ???? (Ongaku Zukan), international version is called Illustrated Musical Encyclopedia
I have the jap version and I recommend it.
for YMO go with the first one, if you like it listen to the rest
Thanks a lot, anons! Already downloading.
I don't know how to describe music very well, so the other day I've done a song that expresses what his song Solitude makes me feel. A song about a song, if that makes any sense.
I wish one day I'll achieve half the deepness of his piano melodies, I'm listening to it right now and shivering.
Am I the only one who likes his synth songs more than piano ones?
