FROM THIS EPISODE

On this week's Rhythm Planet, Tom features music by Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu (1930-1996). Influenced by Debussy and Olivier Messaien, Takemitsu in turn influenced John Cage as well as j-pop icon Ryuichi Sakamoto. Among other musical gems, we'll hear the ultra-rare soundtrack of Legacy for the Future, a television series soundtrack from the 1980s that was never issued outside of Japan. We'll also hear one of his arrangements of a Beatles classic.
