Luke Howard plays Sakamoto
Ryuichi Sakamoto found fame in 1978 with pioneering electronic music group Yellow Magic Orchestra; his solo song Riot in Lagos helped give birth to electro and hip-hop. He’s since worked in genres spanning electronic, classical and world music, collaborating with artists as diverse as Iggy Pop, Youssou N’Dour, David Byrne and Cyndi Lauper. He’s also an Oscar-winning film composer (for 1987’s The Last Emperor; with scores for The Revenant and MIFF 2017’s Audience Award winner Call Me by Your Name also under his belt). He has even composed Nokia ringtones.
To celebrate the screening of Ryuichi Sakamoto: Coda at MIFF, Luke Howard will be performing a special set from Sakamoto's catalogue of works for solo piano.
