    Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence Soundtrack

    During World War II, British soldier Jack Celliers (David Bowie) is captured by Japanese forces and held in a prison camp. The officers become intrigued with Celliers' open defiance in the face of their old-world ideas about cowardice and shame. Composer Ryuichi Sakamoto is one of the world's best musicians. He creates music with a unique style that combines classical, symphonic composition, Japanese traditional sounds and experimental electronic music. The soundtrack also contains a vocal performance by David Sylvian, best remembered as leader of the popular U.K. rock band Japan.

    Cartography

Some tracks are recorded live in concert, others are studio creations. Singer David Sylvian reads his own poetry on two cuts.

    Jan Bang - live sampling, samples, beats, programming, bass line, dictaphone, organ samples, arrangement

    async

    As one-third of Yellow Magic Orchestra and an Academy Award-winning composer for his work on the soundtrack for The Last Emperor, synth pop innovator Ryuichi Sakamoto is among the most groundbreaking artists to have emerged since the late 70s. A musician's musician, Ryuichi Sakamoto has created intriguing musical unions with artists such as David Sylvian, Iggy Pop, Tony Williams, Bootsy Collins, Jacques Morelenbaum and many others.

    async is Ryuichi Sakamoto's first studio album in eight years. This is his most personal release as it follows a long fight against cancer from which Ryuichi Sakamoto emerged with a renewed and passionate creative energy.

    What kind of sounds/music do I want to listen to?

    async is the answer to this question Ryuichi has asked himself for the past several years. This is the album he is the most proud of which synthesizes all of his musical and sound interests. This is a journey through analog synth, the sounds of things and of places, an imaginary soundtrack to an Andrei Tarkovsky film and many others musical surprises.

    Inji

    Inji is the debut solo album by Sam Dust, AKA LA Priest. Across its ten audaciously
    imaginative tracks Inji reasserts Dust as a truly idiosyncratic voice in British music, applying
    the same frantically eclectic, mischievous and wilfully absurd spirit of his previous band,
    the beloved Late of the Pier, to ever more nuanced and affecting songwriting and
    composition.


    From the obscene space-age stadium rock guitar solo of 'Oino', the maddeningly catchy
    digi-dub single that Dust leaked sample-by-sample on a suitably enigmatic website at the
    turn of the year, to 'Learning To Love', the record's gargantuan, eight minute long proghouse
    centrepiece and 'Occasion', a melting martian Prince come-on, Inji confounds and
    delights in equal measure and at every turn.


    'Lady's In Trouble With The Law' boasts a lithe, sensual soul chorus about getting arrested
    that feels at once haunted and horny whilst the insectoid instrumental ambience of 'Lorry
    Park', twists and turns and burrows into the brain as creepily as the most classic Aphex
    Twin material. Elsewhere, 'Fabby', another instrumental, juxtaposes a gorgeous, cascading
    piano figure that'd make Benjamin Britten proud with percussion that sounds like the
    clashing of two swords and album closer, the bubbling, aquamarine ballad 'Mountain' finds
    Dust contorting his voice into an impossibly high, androgynous falsetto.


    Throughout all the songs there's a reliance on feeling and intimation as opposed to any one
    lyrical theme, and although the notion of love, its joys and trials, heaviness and absurdity,
    can often be glimpsed, it's in a non-linear way that recalls the disruptive, deliberately
    misleading pop of artists such as David Sylvian, Arthur Russell and David Byrne.


    Just like its genesis story, Inji is a record that poses as many questions as answers. It has
    its own logic, in its own time zone, and for the duration of its forty four minutes the listener
    shares in this too. If it doesn't conform it's because it's not supposed to.
