Dear flowerbossa,

Thank you for the notice, though I will not be able to see it, because it's too early (7 & 11 AM here), I hope you will enjoy watching it ^^

I like Sakamoto's music a lot, my favourite piece by far is "Energy Flow", it makes me goosebumps every time I listen to it and I find his music so purifying... Did you see his concert at Nakano Sun Plaza in 1990? It's so nice.

Well, I also like another Asian contemporary pianists like Akira Senju (though he's most a composer) or Yiruma, but that's another story ^^

Please, take care,

Dear Shinji,

YES, this was a wonderful experience - I've never been to Sakamoto's concerts, and who would have thought that I'd be listening to one LIVE from Seoul through the internet^^

Sakamoto creates a wide range of music and I would guess that you like his melodious pieces. My favorite album is the one that covered the works of Antonio Carlos Jobim in collaboration with the Brazilian musicians the Morelenbaums.

I ended up buying the second live session through itunes, because it was so beautiful!

BTW, Seikyo-san also was listening to the evening session and was active on twitter. He is eager to make similar attempts, so I encouraged him to do so!
