The prolific musician and composer Ryuichi Sakamoto at Kajitsu, a Manhattan restaurant where he created the music playlist. Sakamoto, it seems, so likes a particular Japanese restaurant in Murray Hill, and visits it so often, that he finally had to be straight with the chef: He could not bear the music it played for its patrons. The issue was not so much that the music was loud, but that it was thoughtless.
Sakamoto suggested that he could take over the job of choosing it, without pay, if only so he could feel more comfortable eating there. The chef agreed, and so Mr. Sakamoto started making playlists for the restaurant, none of which include any of his own music.
Few people knew about this, because Mr. Sakamoto has no particular desire to publicize it. It took me a few weeks to appreciate how radical the story was, if indeed it was true. The same should apply to the music, which after all will be playing before, during and after the eating. I would prefer that music not seem an afterthought, or the result of algorithmic computation. Such a person can at least accomplish the minimum, which is to signal to the customer that attention is being paid, in a generous, original, specific and small-ego way.
In February, I went to Mr. It is a split-level operation: On the second floor is Kajitsu , which follows the Zen, vegan principles of Shojin cuisine, and on the ground floor is Kokage , a more casual operation that incorporates meat and fish into the same idea.
A Japanese tea shop, Ippodo , occupies a counter toward the front of the street-level space. As soon as we sat down, the music pinned our attention. It came from an unpretentious source — a single, wide speaker sitting on a riser about a foot off the floor, hidden behind a serving table. We were downstairs in Kokage, but the same music was playing upstairs in Kajitsu. I asked a waiter if the playlist was Mr.
She said yes. Sakamoto, 66, is exemplary perhaps not only for his music but also for his listening, and his understanding of how music can be used and shared. He is a hero of cosmopolitan musical curiosity, an early technological adopter in extremis, and a kind of supercollaborator. Since the late s, when he was a founding member of the electronic-pop trio Yellow Magic Orchestra, he has composed and produced music for dance floors, concert halls, films, video games, cellphone ringtones, and acts of ecological awareness and political resistance.
Some of what we heard at Kokage sounded like what Mr. Sakamoto would logically be interested in. There was slow or spacious solo-piano music from various indistinct traditions; a few melodies that might have been film-soundtrack themes; a bit of improvisation.
Where there was singing, it was generally not in English. I felt generally stumped and sensitively attended to. I felt ecstatic. He is not in the habit of complaining when he has a problem with music in public spaces, because it happens so often. I found out that Mr. Sakamoto had enlisted Ryu Takahashi, a New York music producer, manager and curator, to help him with the playlist.
My son and I met them both, as well as Norika Sora, Mr. Sakamoto was dressed in black down to his sneakers. It was, he said.
I asked if it would bother him if people knew. But this restaurant is really something I like, and I respect their chef, Odo. Sakamoto said, using the industry term for background music. He sucked his teeth. I know Brazilian music. I have worked with Brazilians many times.
This was so bad. So I left. Whose decision of mixing this terrible roundup? Let me do it. Because your food is as good as the beauty of Katsura Rikyu. It can be the result of the algorithmic programming from, say, a Pandora or Spotify station. It can be one of the many playlists made by human curators at one of those streaming services, meant for broad appeal. Or it can be the result of the safe or self-absorbed choices from someone in the restaurant.
Some feeling of lift or transcendence is essential. I asked a few restaurateurs how they get beyond the good-enough in creating or controlling their own playlists.
Gerardo Gonzalez , the chef at Lalito , in Chinatown, spoke of first encounters and parting impressions. He contends that music is the first and strongest sensory indicator of what a restaurant is about; he wants his customers to leave in a better mood than that in which they entered. Well-known tracks, he suggested, can be useful. But some feeling of lift or transcendence is essential. He cited the jazz-harp music of Alice Coltrane and Dorothy Ashby as examples of music that does not go wrong.
Also, a great playlist for your customers is not equal to the music you listen to for own purposes. They took his request seriously, and he likes not knowing everything that plays. Like Mr. Sakamoto whether the exercise of creating a restaurant playlist was as simple as choosing music he liked. He and his wife agreed that the music was much too dark in mood. Sora said. I think it depends not just on the food or the hour of the day, but the atmosphere, the color, the decoration.
Takahashi reckoned that he and Mr. Sakamoto made at least five drafts before settling on the current version of the Kajitsu playlist. Sakamoto said. Jazz pianists are a particularly vexed issue for him. Sakamoto marveled. Sakamoto objects to loud restaurant music. It was also not very loud, and here we arrive at an issue that may concern older customers more than younger ones.
Sakamoto objects to loud restaurant music, and often uses a decibel meter on his phone to measure the volume of the sound around him. He has composed original music for public spaces before, he said — a scientific museum and an advertising-agency building in Tokyo. He used light and wind sensors to change the music during the day. But the only experience he has had making playlists of the music of others, for other people, has been for family members. He made one for his son, when he was learning to play the bass guitar; Mr.
Sakamoto carefully excluded the bassist Jaco Pastorius , for reasons of personal taste, but his son found out about Mr. Pastorius a week later and scolded his father for the omission. Sakamoto made one for his father, during a hospital illness. Was that, I asked, a collection of music she liked?
Sakamoto paused and laughed and shook his head. Sakamoto and Mr. Takahashi plan to change their playlist with each new season. Sakamoto, again, has been retained as chief playlister.

The irony and costumes, he admits, were a shield against attention, and he would be far happier one step removed from the limelight. His music remained at the heart of the mainstream, particularly via his soundtrack work. But avant garde instincts kept pulling him away from the mainstream, and his 21st-century output has tended towards ambience and abstraction, whether on projects for tiny electronica labels or the Golden Globe-nominated score for The Revenant, made with regular collaborator Carsten Nicolai, AKA Alva Noto. All of which, seemingly, has left him with an undimmed creative urge. Even during his cancer treatment, he managed to make stunning ambient records with Taylor Deupree and work on Plankton, an installation in museums in Paris and Kyoto combining art and science.
Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence
Famed worldwide as a film composer, Ryiuchi Sakamoto began his career as a pianist, creating patterns, phrases and innovative arrangements before joining his first commercial electronic pop band in , the Yellow Magic Orchestra. Around the same time, he worked on his first solo album, the Thousand Knives of Ryuichi Sakamoto , which blends up-to-date electronic techniques with an old-fashioned gift for good tunes. Riot in Lagos brought him fame beyond Japan, and he went on to work with many top producers of pop, dance and electro. But his language of minimalist jazz is one enjoyed around the world as music that gives listeners the space to think and work and create for themselves. Never does the music sound rushed in his hands, and more importantly never does it meander and lose its way This may be the finest collection of his complete piano works available.
