Sakamoto además de editar un disco junto a Alva Noto durante el 2011, también trabajó a dúo con Christian Fennesz para realizar "Flumina"; este disco de 24 tracks de piano, guitarra y electrónica.
The 24 pieces of 'flumina' are based on piano compositions/improvisations which Ryuichi Sakamoto had recorded whilst touring in Japan. On that tour Ryuichi played a piano piece in a different key at the beginning of every show, always having a 'fennesz sakomoto' project in mind. After 24 shows he had 24 tracks in 24 different keys, covering all 24 tonal steps of the western tonal system. Sakamoto sent the tracks over to Christian Fennesz and he worked on them using electronics, guitars and synths. They met in New York then and mixed the album together with Fernando Aponte at KAB Studios.
This is their 3rd collaboration released on Touch, after the live recording of 'Sala Santa Cecilia' [Touch # Tone 22, 2005] and 'Cendre [Touch # Tone 32, 2007].
