The Subset Festival honours the Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto

1 min read

On the last day of this year’s edition, the Subset Festival honours the Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto, who passed away a year ago, by screening ”Ryuichi Sakamoto: Opus” directed by the Japanese-American filmmaker Neo Sora. Sakamoto mustered all of his energy to leave the world with one final performance: a concert film, featuring just him and his piano. Curated by Sakamoto himself and presented in his chosen order, the twenty pieces performed in the film wordlessly narrate his life through his music.

The Subset Festival, the multifaceted music platform launched last year, held by the Athens Epidaurus Festival in co-production with the Athens Conservatoire, returns refreshed but always with a focus on the dialogue between contemporary music and new media.

Named after a mathematical term (subset ⊆), the Subset Festival together diverse versions of contemporary musical creation, incorporating a wide variety of artistic trends.

From 10 to 14 June, the renovated Conservatoire venues will host musical ensembles and soloists, established and up-and-coming alike, both from Greece and around the world, visual and sound installations and performances, as well as open call workshops.
