The second collaboration between pianist Ryuichi Sakamoto and electronic artist Christopher Willits that is completely instrumental but expresses what it means to be human as each piece explores an aspect of life.

Willits + Sakamoto
Ancient Future

Willits + Sakamoto: Ancient Future (Ghostly International)
Label: Ghostly International    
Released in: USA    

""Ancient Future" is the 2nd collaboration between visionary pianist Ryuichi Sakamoto & electronic pioneer Christopher Willits. Built around a series of piano pieces that Sakamoto sent to Willits after the release of the duo's 1st record together (2008's "Ocean Fire"), the 6 tracks are entirely instrumental, & yet, they speak about the very essence of what it means to be human. The 6 song cycle moves through a narrative of sorts, each piece with a story to tell & an aspect of life to explore."-Ghostly International
