13 Minutes from the Next Ryuichi Sakamoto Album

Live in concert with Illuha and Taylor Deupree

Taylor Deupree has posted a taste of a forthcoming record that features him as part of a quartet, alongside Japanese legend Ryuichi Sakamoto and the duo Illuha (Corey Fuller and Tomoyoshi Date). The posted music is the final movement of three that comprise the forthcoming album Perpetual, due for January 27 release on Deupree’s 12k label. It was recorded live as part of the 10th anniversary festivities of the Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media. The piece is nearly 13 minutes long and consists of a slow piano line that emerges from a mix of drone and texture, a rich field of sound given tension and grounding by a constant scraping, perhaps the most elemental of percussion sounds.
