You know how much I love Ryuichi Sakamoto, and his new double CD (Out of Noise and Playing The Piano) dropped in late 2010. He is just incredible. While reading about him, I serendipitously found that he composed the music for BABEL starring Cate Blanchett, Brad Pitt and one of my favorite actors and directors, Gael Garcia Bernal. Gael has starred in numerous movies, including Y Tu Mama Tambien. BABEL, directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, is going on my must see list. Gael, Brad and Ryuichi; you can't get any better. But, most important, is the song from BABEL by Sakamoto, Biba No Aozora, which is one of the most beautiful songs I've heard.


  1. Happy New Year! Thanks for sharing this - I'm always in search of beautiful music.

  2. Hi Donna,
    Hope you are having a Happy New Year !
    I confess to not being familiar with his work, but shall seek him out.
    By the way, I found your latest comment in my spam folder, and have corrected my post to add
    the "picking holes in the bread" reminder.
    This post was a repeat of a very early post, but because I have new followers I thought it may be of interest. Didn't think to add about the hole - pinching episodes :)
    Be well friend !

  3. I loved the music from Babel. I will check him out. Thanks for the tip!
    Happy New Year to you!
