26. The letters of the title stand for "Back To The Basic," which was what this album meant for the multi-faceted artist at the time. It was the first time he'd released a studio album consisting of only original piano compositions.
Ryuichi Sakamoto has nothing to prove. He didn’t 20 years ago, either. In 1999, the Japanese composer boasted a sprawling, diverse body of work that would leave any artist envious. He’d first began to make his mark as a part of Yellow Magic Orchestra in 1978, an electronic music outfit whose work would become definitive of the genre. Among the group’s many accomplishments, they were the first group to use a Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer – the 808 would later become a crucial fixture of both hip-hop and electronic music. The result was BTTB, an acronym for ‘Back to the Basics. The album is now being revived for its 20th anniversary and compiling tracks from both its original version in Japan as well as the international release. As the name implies, BTTB finds Sakamoto limiting himself in his resources. Though Sakamoto is the sole performer, alone at his piano, the recordings find him at his inventive. He revels in the limitations and the recordings do well to exemplify some of the composer’s greatest strengths.
His compositions combined with the strings on that CD are heart stopping, and nothing short of amazing. 4 people found this helpful. BTTB - Back to the Basics - is an album I bought after my daughter mentioned she liked the melody of one of the pieces ("Chanson"). I've never regretted it - it is such a mellow, enjoyable collection of relatively simple piano pieces that it can brighten quiet days or provide an escape from noisy ones. 3 people found this helpful.
In a departure from his more electronically amplified works, composer and pianist Ryuichi Sakamoto's BTTB stands as a sometimes contemplative, a periodically nostalgic, and an often new age-sounding acoustic piano album. At the time that Sakamoto began composing for BTTB, he thought that a CD of piano music felt right, though he was not sure of what kind of styles he wanted to play around with. Instead of settling on one or two styles, the renowned pianist and composer experimented with several.
