Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence.
Music by Ryuichi Sakamoto
2016 will be the year that David Bowie disappeared and Ryuichi Sakamoto made his great come back. The first one marked the last 50 years of pop and art music and cinema wordwide. The second one is a demi-god in his country: Japan. His last original soundtrack of new masterpiece directed by Iñárritu, “The Revenant”, is a true gem of contemplative music.
In 1983, David Bowie and Ryuichi Sakamoto shared the bill in the unforgettable Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence by Nagisa Ōshima. Its soundtrack, composed by Ryuichi Sakamoto in an original style, combines classical occidental symphonic composition, traditional Japanese sounds, and experimental electronic music.
On CD and on 180g gatefold LP, including download card.
Available from Amazon.com, Amazon UK, Amazon France and Amazon Germany.
