Trailblazing Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto is joined by revered electronic musician Taylor Deupree on this live recording, documenting their collaboration at St John-at-Hackney Church in 2014 part of Thirty Three Thirty Three's flagship concert series St John Sessions'. The two musicians develop a kinetic understanding over the recording, entering a sparse musical dialogue flourishes of prepared piano give way to bursts of noise and sculpted synths. Totally improvised, the performance follows their collaborations on record as a duo on 2013's Disappearance, and in a trio with Illuha on 2014's Perpetual. Ryuichi Sakamoto has had an extraordinary career, from his founding of revolutionary electronic trio Yellow Magic Orchestra, to his remarkable film scores notably Merry Christmas, Mr Lawrence and the soundtrack for Oscar-winning film, The Revenant. Taylor Deupree, meanwhile, spent his career devoted to his label, 12k, and an intricate form of ambient minimalism.
