Ryuichi Sakamoto & The Fairlight CMI

Let us return now back to the CMI. Here is a fun interview clip with Ryuichi Sakamoto & his Fairlight CMI, from 1984. The interview is a little awkward, probably due in large part to the language barrier – it is almost as if the camera crew just dropped in unexpectedly to say “hello” to Ryuichi. The end is wonderful, with Ryuichi happily demonstrating his favorite CMI sound. This was taken just while his solo career was exploding across the globe. As a member of Yellow Magic Orchestra, he will be performing several live concerts this season (rare). Don’t miss this all-time synthesizer artist!
