Ryuichi Sakamoto – Bibo No Aozora (1996)

YouTubeAmazoniTunes – Discogs

The closing scene of the Alejandro González Iñárritu’s movie Babel features the sound of Ryuichi Sakamoto’s ‘Bibo no Aozora’. This hauntingly beautiful instrumental is a world apart from Sakamoto’s early work with electronica pioneers Yellow Magic Orchestra. The Magic Numbers would borrow heavily from this piece for their song ‘The Pulse’ in 2010.
