Berlin Sessions for Brilliant Trees 1983 featuring Ryuichi Sakamoto working on a piano arrangement for Forbidden Colours prior to recording. Documented by Steve Jansen.

This music is meant to accompany a video loop (see below).

This assignment for the Disquiet Junto Project was created in Ableton Live 9. I recorded the main theme (3 parts) using my acoustic guitar. Part 3 is layered under part 1 and 2. Part 1 and 2 are tweaked as samples in the Ableton Sampler with some filtering and modulation, plus additional filtering.
