Saw a documentary last night about a composer Ryuichi Sakamoto. I knew nothing about him, but after the film and a Q&A with Mr. Sakomoto and the director, I left the theater so inspired.

Bach and Tarkovsky were featured prominently in the movie and my hands were basically itching to come home and play some Bach! :) I also must see Tarkovsky's Solaris asap. What took me so long?

There is Bach's theme in Solaris and Mr. Sakomoto did his own interpretation of that theme. I found it online today and listened to it about 100 times. I cried at the beauty of it.
