    Excellent score. Sentimental, ethereal piano writing, trademarked Sakamoto minimalism. If you like dreamy, smooth and melodic nostalgic music you'll love it.

    Sakamoto is such a gifted artists, THE LAST EMPEROR, LITTLE BUDDHA and SHELTERING SKY with its sweeping adagios are truly beautiful. FEMME FATALE is magnificent, can't think of any other words to describe them.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    Did you like SILK too D ? Maybe not in the class of the others you mention but still very good.

    Sakamoto is a superb pianist.

    Yeah, i forgot about thaT! SILK is very similar to TONY TAKITANI, certainly not up there with those others but still a very beautiful score indeed beer

    As for the pianist part, i totally agree; i found my self quite a few times drifting for hours in youtube watching Sakamoto videos

    What a coincidence!? Exactly what I've been doing recently. smile

    I'll be getting TONY TAKITANI.

    p.s. Can we have the composer title topic in BOLD.

    EDIT TO ADD : nice one beer

    Anyone seen Zanan-e Bedun-e Mardan? I would love to hear what Sakamoto wrote for it! Maybe some middle eastern/piano fuse score.

    Not yet; I plan to listen to or have listened to:
    -Snake Eyes (good)
    -Sheltering Sky (alright, good main theme (similar to Snake Eyes))
    -Wuthering Heights
    -Tony Takani
    -Silk
    -Femme Fatale

    Little Buddha is, IMO, Sakamoto's best score, I can never get enough of it, a classic and in my top 30 of all time.

    Sakamoto is one of a very select few composers whom I'll consider buying blindly, has anyone here ordered from ARK SQUARE before?

    I think I have some of their (slightly less than fully legit wink ) releases, but I never ordered directly from them.

  2. I have ordered from them in the past but not for a year or two. Their ordering process was a bit clumsy then (I don't know if it is any better now), but I never had any problems the 5-6 times I used them.

    He's my favourite Japanese composer. I can only but wish him all the best and hope he makes a full recovery.

    Very sad indeed. Wishing him all the best. One of the best Japanese composers ever, imo, and tremendously influential to the western world as well.

  3. Hi everyone!

    My latest review in the Throwback Thirty series is of the Oscar winning score from 1987 - THE LAST EMPEROR by Ryuichi Sakamoto, David Byrne, and Cong Su.

    This is my last review for a week or so - I'm on vacation all next week - but I'll be back on December 11th with first article in the annual Geographic Roundup series!

    https://moviemusicuk.us/2017/11/30/the- … d-cong-su/

    Enjoy smile

    Jon


    This is a great score. Actually one that triggered my interest in film music. Byrne's main theme was all over the place back then in Germany. It played in every single Chinese Restaurant and in every TV feature with remotely Chinese aspects.

    Bach's music is vibrant and inspired.
