  • “It begins by breaking. For over 30 years, I’ve been wanting to make art pieces where the music itself is the artwork.
    There used to be many rules that prevented me from doing so, but now I finally can.”

    I said when I announced the previous work, but I think it will be exhausted.

    At the same time, this work is art direction by Shiro Takatani, who has been producing together for many years, and Dumb Type I am very excited about the attempts of delivering 17 analog boards, including 16 pieces of works, and my sound sources that are not used in installation.

  • "Playback", which was produced during the dam type exhibition at Pompidu Center Messes in France in 2018, is a sound installation using records, and we hope that someday a variety of musicians can make records and collaborate. I was. This time (from May to September 2022), I am very happy to be able to exhibit "Playback" by Ryuichi Sakamoto's Dm type exhibition at the Haus Der Kunst Museum in Munich.

    This field recording sound source by 16 friends of Sakamoto will be included in the new work "2022" produced for Venice Biennale. Because this work is based on the theme of "how to communicate and perceive the world, which has changed drastically due to the spread of social media and the spread of new colonovirus," and quoted text from geographical textbooks in the 1850s. Because it is a work, the environmental sound from all over the world will act as a trigger reminiscent of various places on the earth far from the exhibition room.

    This project is an attempt to recognize the world from the noise of the city from the noise of the city. Listen to the various sounds and silence around you.Shiro Takatani

Ryuichi Sakamoto | Art Box Project 2023 Content details

For an exhibition on Dumb Type that was held in Munich, Ryuichi Sakamoto directed the creation of the installation piece “Playback”. His idea was to collect field recordings from 16 different locations around the world and play them back in a way that encapsulates the specific location and time that each contributor made the recording and the “unique sound” that they captured. In addition to the 16 field recordings, we will add Ryuichi Sakamoto’s unreleased field recording “Tokyo 2021” to press 17 individual records and compile them into an ART BOX. Every record is transparent and side-A of each record will be one field recording. For side-B, the visual information of the light and shadow of a map will be converted into data representing sound dynamics and with that, AUTORA FACTORY PLATE will use a unique technique to etch a map of the region around the city where the specific recording took place. A special cutting process will be used to have the location of the city come to the center of the disc. This ART BOX will be specially art-directed by Dumb Type’s Shiro Takatani and will be a limited release of 100 sets sold worldwide.
