Synth wizard Ryuichi Sakamoto was a composer and arranger since the mid-70s and burst into the world’s greater consciousness in Yellow Magic Orchestra. After working on the Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence soundtrack (and shortly before scoring The Last Emperor), Sakamoto became musical director on the 1987 anime project Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honnêamise, a sci-fi drama set in an alternative world. The film was seen as ground- breaking for its portrayal of human alienation and social conformity, and Sakamoto’s funky spacy synth soundtrack feels ground-breaking too. This deluxe edition includes 4 bonus tracks and an exclusive full color 60x60cm (24x24 inches) poster!
