chasm remix project


(Justin Kleinfeld) Commencement of work on an exciting new Ryuichi Sakamoto remix project was announced in December. An all-star team of electronic producers are currently busy in their studios remixing tracks from Ryuichi Sakamoto's critically acclaimed studio album "Chasm." Artists currently working on mixes include Keigo Oyamada (a/k/a Cornelius), Chris Brann (Ananda Project, Wamdue Project, P'Tahh), Richard Devine, Taylor Deupree, Mr. Anonymous, and Carsten Nicolai (Alva Noto), to name a few. More remixers will be revealed in January, so stay tuned for some BIG announcements!

Ryuichi Sakamoto can't wait to hear the results: "Making Chasm was very important to me personally, because it was my first release of original music in sometime. This remix project is equally important, because we have really assembled a sort of "dream team" of artists to work with the material. The finished mixes are starting to come back in, so it's an exciting time!"

The untitled remix project is Executive Produced by Ryuichi Sakamoto, and co-produced by Norika Sora, Evan Balmer, Justin Kleinfeld & Eric Giambertone. The project is slated for a spring 2006 release on Sakamoto's KAB America label.
