Japanese composer and musician Seigen Ono
engineered early records by Ryuichi Sakamoto and Yasuaki Shimizu. His first album 'Seigen' was released on the ambient label Music Interior
in 1984 and has since worked with theatre and ballet companies around the world. Yet it was one of his first jobs on arriving in Tokyo from Fukushima that introduced him to film and cinema. This week sees the Japanese release of 'BOX III', a box set of remastered films by film director Wim Wenders, containing Notebook on Cities and Clothes (1989), Until the End of the World (1992), Faraway, So Close! (1993), and Buena Vista Social Club (1999). The man responsible for mixing sound for each film: Seigen Ono!
