AllMusic Review by

Musician and composer Ryuichi Sakamoto was one of a handful of concerned artists who took part in The Cape Farewell Project, in which scientists joined with the creative community for a conference in Greenland to address and investigate global warming. During his stay in Greenland, Sakamoto made a number of field recordings that he incorporated into his album Out of Noise; the album is dominated by graceful, minimalist keyboard pieces punctuated by electronic noise, ambient sounds and bits of found voices.
