Ryuichi Sakamoto :

@ allmusic.com : The driving force behind Neo Geo — a cutting-edge fusion combining Asian and Western classical music with other global textures and rhythms — pioneering electronic composer Ryuichi Sakamoto was among the most innovative artists to emerge during the 1980s.

@last.fm : His 1999 musical composition “Energy Flow” is the first number-one instrumental single in the Japan’s Oricon charts history. He was ranked at number 59 in a list of the top 100 most influential musicians compiled by HMV.

@Discogs : He has also written soundtracks for Pedro Almodovar’s film High Heels, and Oliver Stone’s Wild Palms. Sakamoto was married to a Japanese pianist and singer Akiko Yano, collaborating with her on some of her recordings.
