商品詳細

Ryuichi Sakamoto's latest work is a charity single created in collaboration with Unaigumi, an Okinawan folk music group composed of four women. After “Undercooled” was originally released on Sakamoto's 2004 album, CHASM, Koja, singer of Unaigumi and old music friend of Sakamoto and her producer/husband reached out to him to write lyrics and a song in Okinawan over the track. The artists began working on it since last year, recording voice and Sanshin (Okinawan Three Strings). After a brief interruption in the production due to Sakamoto's illness, the group completed the song this summer.
The title, “undercooled” came in response to the heated political situation in the world after the 9.11 attacks and during the ensuing Iraq war. Sakamoto’s message was clear: “the world needs to cool down.”A different, but equally important situation has been simmering in Okinawa around the new construction of an American military base from Futenma to Henoko. Thus the new version of “undercooled” was created to restate the original message to “cool off.” Sakamoto and Unaigumi created this new version of "undercooled" with the hope of creating a peaceful Okinawa, Japan, and the world at large using the power of music and song.
The word "Miruku Yugafu" is an ancient Okinawan term meaning "an ideal,peaceful, and prosperous world which the Maritreya will bring." The lyrics, sung in the Okinawan dialect, praise of nature and evoke the pathos of war. Unaigumi formed in 2014 around Misako Koja, an artist who participated in Sakamoto's Neo Geo, Beauty, Opera LIFE, and other album release tours. Joining her are Namiko Miyazato and Yukino Hiyane who were the original members of the well-known Okinawan music group, Nenes, alongside Koja, and Emiko Shimabukuro to complete the four. The many years of training in an Okinawan-style folk singing has given the four women a warm, yet reserved voice, and to this, Sakamoto devoted the arrangement of the song, emphasizing the vocals by creating an expansive soundscape.
At 5 bars, the chorus of this piece is among the shortest in music history and the rest of the song is composed of the repetition of a similarly mystical melody. Moreover, despite being an arrangement of a preexisting song, the piece exhibits the naturalism that an ancient Okinawan chant possesses. In the interlude, the listener is presented with singer, UA, and her children speaking about humans and the universe.
All proceeds, excluding the fees and expenses of the label, will be donated to the Henoko Fund* to support the ongoing struggle of the local citizens affected by the construction of the new replacement military base. The artwork seen here was created and donated by Cocco, in support for the cause.

*Henoko Fund: The aim of this fund is to support the opposition of the construction of the new Henoko military base, to support the effort to withdraw the deployment of the Osprey as requested in the petition, to support the on-going activism to close and ban relocation of the Futenma base within the prefecture, and to clear a path for the future of Okinawa.
