Must Be the Music: Day Fifteen

One name that emerged from Yellow Magic Orchestra in my musical archive is Ryuichi Sakamoto. I think of him like an Andy Warhol of music; he has many songs with one-word titles that sweep across the acoustic canvas like Mr. Warhol’s works — unique, quirky, and at times creepy — sweep across the painted canvas. For film buffs, Mr. Sakamoto might be familiar as the soundtrack composer for the film The Last Emperor.

Mr. Sakamoto starred in the film as well. The soundtrack was amazing, of course.
