Ryuichi Sakamoto World Premiere Album Listening

We are pleased to announce Big Ears will host the world premiere album listening of Ryuichi Sakamoto’s async during the festival weekend. Set to release April 28 via Milan Records, Sakamoto’s forthcoming album will be playing at the Knoxville Museum of Art on Friday and Sunday. Paying close attention to the essence of each track and carefully balancing the sounds with a less-is-more perspective, what remains are singular expressions of Sakamoto’s current mindset, and one of his most personal albums. The pallet includes conventional instrumentation such as piano and orchestra, but also a deep selection of unique acoustic and electric sounds both programmed and organic. Join us for this exclusive preview event!
