LISTEN is a series of listening parties devoted to spatial audio compositions. These non-performance events are movies for your ears. In this first LISTEN event within Envelop at The Midway we are presenting Ryuichi Sakamoto's incredible new album "async". This stunning piece was mixed for 5.1 surround and then remixed by Christopher Willits for spherical playback with the Envelop software.
Limited tickets are avaialble, this is not a live performance by Sakamoto.
As composer, performer, producer, and environmentalist, few artists have as diverse a résumé as that of Ryuichi Sakamoto. Sakamoto's work has spanned vast musical territories, from pioneering electronic music as a member of Yellow Magic Orchestra to crafting globally inspired rock albums, classical compositions, a stretch of minimal/ambient music collaborations, and over thirty film scores.
