Ryuichi Sakamoto - Plankton LP
Plankton is a unique artistic collaboration between biologist Christian Sardet, visual artist Shiro Takatani and musician Ryuichi Sakamoto. In 2016 the three men debuted an art installation at Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art in Kyoto, Japan showcasing Sardet's unbelievable images of microscopic plankton. These photos were paired with a video installation by Takatani and music composed by Sakamoto.
Ryuichi Sakamoto's musical contribution is now available as a standalone release courtesy of Milan Records. Elegant and astral, the aquatic soundscape created by Sakamoto conjures images of a vast ocean and the peaceful roll of the sea. In addition to a digital release, the album will also enjoy a limited edition vinyl run. Plankton is pressed on a 180 gram black vinyl and housed in a dress jacket, each hand-numbered between 1 and 500.
