Ryuichi Sakamoto photographed by Beth Wilkinson for Lindsay
Lindsay presents a preview screening of the acclaimed documentary Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda at ACMI
“✭✭✭✭✭ One of the great documentaries about the creative process. Extraordinary.” — The Hollywood Reporter
With the great Ryuichi Sakamoto gracing the cover of Lindsay Issue No. 2, it’s an honour to host a special preview screening of Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda. In this intimate portrait of one of the most important artists of our time, we take a glimpse into the mind, life and process of the man who pioneered Japanese electropop, scored Hollywood film scores, and once wrote forty-five songs in one week (for The Last Emperor).
The screening will be followed by a live Q&A between Lindsay’s editor Beth Wilkinson and Lindsay’s film writer Max Hayward, who interviewed Ryuichi earlier this year in London. The two will discuss the artist’s prolific film career, from working alongside David Bowie in Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence to scoring Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant, in which Ryuichi explains to us in Lindsay Issue No. 2:
“It’s not only sound design. It was using layers of sound emotionally. He [Iñárritu] wanted to portray the emotional flow of the film without conventional music, but with physical sounds—sounds of water, natural noise.”Buy now
