Les Variations musicales de Tannay and Visions du Réel On Tour present:
Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda
Stephen Nomura Schible
United States 2017, 102'
Swiss premiere VdR2018
After surviving a life-threatening illness, Ryuichi Sakamoto comes back to his creative and artistic process with a rejuvenated energy. The film observes him during the writing of async, his latest studio work, still obsessed by his never-ending quest for that one note or sound that no human ear has heard before. While he painstakingly questions himself in the writing of his record, the film allows us glimpses into the musician's past. His achievements and his work as a composer for directors such as Bernardo Bertolucci, Brian De Palma and Hollywood blockbuster such as The Revenant. With a zen-like curiosity, Sakamoto records the sounds of raindrops and the melting of ice. Like a child in an unknown garden, he keeps on playing with the discoveries he makes while trying to unearth the beat of the universe. A music biography like no one before. A celebration of Sakamoto's uniqueness.
