Product Description

Trailblazing Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto is joined by revered electronic musician Taylor Deupree on this live recording, documenting their collaboration at St John-at-Hackney Church in 2014 – part of Thirty Three Thirty Three’s flagship concert series ‘St John Sessions’.

The two musicians develop a kinetic understanding over the recording, entering a sparse musical dialogue – flourishes of prepared piano give way to bursts of noise and sculpted synths. Totally improvised, the performance follows their collaborations on record – as a duo on 2013's Disappearance, and in a trio with Illuha on 2014's Perpetual.

Ryuichi Sakamoto has had an extraordinary career, from his founding of revolutionary electronic trio Yellow Magic Orchestra, to his remarkable film scores – notably Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence and the soundtrack for Oscar-winning film,  The Revenant.

Taylor Deupree, meanwhile, spent his career devoted to his label, 12k, and an intricate form of ambient minimalism.

Originally released in 2015 – Thirty Three Thirty Three’s inaugural record – the album has been remastered by Deupree and features new artwork and a superior gatefold sleeve housing two 180-gram heavyweight records alongside 24" photographic print.
