On October 22nd, 2009 at 9 pm Ryuichi Sakamoto will be on the Teatro Comunale stage in Florence for an unforgettable live concert: Playing the piano.
Ryuichi Sakamoto has made a career of crossing musical and technological boundaries. Sakamoto has experimented with, and excelled in many different musical styles, making a name for himself in popular, orchestral, and film music. Never one to be satisfied with the status quo, Sakamoto continues to push the limits of his artistry, fusing genres, styles, and technologies for the first time to create new and exciting directions in musical expression.
Sakamoto is back in 2009 with his first new solo recording in five years, Out of noise, and his first solo tour since his 2000 BTTB tour. Out of noise is yet another musical achievement that manages to capture the essence of Sakamoto at this particular point in time. Perhaps as curator Diego Cortez suggests, Sakamoto has mastered the art "deconstructing the past, and the present, in order to lead us into the future with a greater scope."
Sakamoto will be on the road in the EU performing pieces that span his career with two pianos this autumn in support of Out of noise.
