*This is not a live performance by Sakamoto and he will not be present*
We worked with Sakamoto to present his incredible new album "async" through 28 speakers in Envelop's spatial audio listening space. LISTEN is a series of listening parties devoted to spatial audio compositions. These non-performance events are movies for your ears. This stunning piece was mixed for 5.1 surround and then remixed by Christopher Willits for spherical playback with the Envelop software

Ryuichi 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
