In this highly-anticipated talk, join Ryuichi Sakamoto in an intimate conversation with one of the 21st century’s most prolific and influential musicians. The Oscar-winning Japanese composer will speak fluidly about his life and career, from sharing his passionate exploration of the sounds of everyday objects, his involvement with various social causes, to his deepest personal reflections on life and mortality. He discusses the creation of his latest album, async, which draws from his own battle with cancer. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet Ryuichi Sakamoto whose over four-decade long career has been pivotal in shaping the landscape of contemporary music.
