I’ve just come back from the live of Ryuichi Sakamoto Trio @ Palais des Beaux Arts, Brussels : HUGE ! A fantastic narrative music, I didn’t pay attention how long was the live, between a life and a minute… But enough for me, to watch all frames of my next movie (lol!). Three calls, four standing ovations, non-stop rounds of applause and lots of emotion. Never seen as much as people @ night in Brussels. What a pity I didn’t bring my camera! The heteroclite swarm of human being in the large halls of BOZAR, amazing! Never seen as much Japanese people in Brussels too! I didn’t really know the music of this Oscar winner composer and pianist, Ryuchi Sakamoto. Maybe a bit of the soundrack of The Last Emperor (or Furyo never ever watched, I really have to go more often to the cinematèque). When it started playing the first notes of Furyo’s soundrack, the audience got crazy! Wow! I’ve always associated the name of Ryuichi Sakamoto to David Bowie, same hair cut now (lol)! And after tonight live, I should add both of them are amazingly gifted! HUGE! There were all ages in the audience, even some children (wise parents) : after the third calls, a Japanese granny asked and instisted for a track ! He played her track and with lots of simplicity, the artist signed her autographs on stage. I also really enjoyed his two fantastic musicians : Jaques Morelenbaum, the awsome cellist (I’ve noticed tonight how present was cello in my film culture) and Judy Kang, the great violonist. It was absolutely fantastic! Beauty is timeless. Thanks to Ryuchi Sakamoti Trio and BOZAR MUSIC for its eclectic music selection! What a week, starting with Barthélémy Toguo @ La Verrière Hermès, it was my “blockbusters” cultural events week! Next : a blast with the great “Drive“, with Ryan Goslin (some says he’s the new Steve McQueen, do you think so?).
