Elegant, nuanced and profoundly moving, Ryuichi Sakamoto – fragments is an intimate concert featuring two maestros, iconic composer and musician Ryuichi Sakamoto and Japanese multimedia artist, Shiro Takatani.

In this concert, Oscar-winning composer Ryuichi Sakamoto joins his friend and long-time collaborator Shiro Takatani, founder of Japanese art collective Dumb Type, to imagine a resplendent performance with a strong focus on improvisation and the sonority of everyday objects.
 
The performance draws from Sakamoto’s latest solo album, async, along with newer works.
Described as “an imaginary soundtrack to a film Andrei Tarkovsky never finished”, async is one of Sakamoto’s most deeply personal albums following the maestro’s own battle with cancer, and an introspective reflection on the essential nature of life and death,
 
Sakamoto’s intense, masterful playing is heightened by Takatani’s cinematic visuals, full of poetic metaphors with its evocation of natural phenomena. The performance pulls the audience into singular, shared moments of Sakamoto’s sound creation and exploration.

Don’t miss this intimate, sublime performance by one of Asia’s most accomplished musicians, and a celebration of a creative friendship spanning decades.
