(Japan - Import)
2007 Japanese pressing of this collaboration between Ryuichi Sakamoto, formerly of Yellow Magic Orchestra and worldwide laptop guru Fennesz. The impact and importance of this recording is difficult to overstate. Christian Fennesz is far and away the standard bearer of laptop music, his thawed sound of fractured guitar chords and warm noise melts hearts around the world. Ryuichi Sakamoto, meanwhile, a contributing force in Electronic music for almost three decades in Yellow Magic Orchestra and his vast solo oeuvre, takes his place on laptop next to Fennesz for this historic meeting. Anyone concerned with the future of sound, or interested in modern music composition, or anyone who simply enjoys sweet ambient music should welcome this brilliant music from brilliant talents... towards a more brilliant world.
