  Sculpting in Time

  Support – The Tokyo University of the Arts GEIDAI FACTORY LAB

  This song uses the sound sculpture of François Baschet, which Mr. Sakamoto also recorded. At the time, a seminar at the University of the Arts, to which I belonged, was involved in repairs and storage. I was wondering if we could have an opportunity to work together. I imagined what kind of sound Mr. Sakamoto would have made, and tried composing it. The title comes from Sakamoto’s favorite book by Tarkovsky.
