The late Japanese composer’s artistic spirit is living on at Tokyo’s NTT Intercommunication Center, a place where he collaborated on events with the likes of Laurie Anderson and Takatani Shiro. A new exhibition delves into their decades-long partnership, with highlights like Sakamoto’s early internet-powered performances and his role in shaping the center’s anniversaries. Through talks, symposiums, and concerts, the show celebrates Sakamoto’s legacy while pushing it forward with AI-powered works inspired by his data. It’s a fitting tribute to a visionary artist who used technology to endlessly reinvent himself.
