On Ancient Future I hear the good ol’ Sakamoto-san behind the keyboard, sparsely filling the silence with his abstract melodies and chords. There’s a resonating presence in the mid-range, at times skydiving into deep and rumbling bass. The atmosphere is filled with ambiance of Christopher’s reverberated guitar. The music on the album is built around a series of piano pieces that Sakamoto sent to Willits after the release of the duo’s first record together, 2008′s Ocean Fire. As a whole, Ancient Future functions as a piece about the creation, acceptance and completion of one’s fate and all of life’s experiences, following a trajectory through inner conflict, resolution and, ultimately, acceptance. The six-song cycle moves through a narrative of sorts, each piece with a story to tell and an aspect of life to explore.

Ancient Future is an album where the parts don't all fit together naturally, but it's all the stronger for it. It works as a near-perfect reflection of the album's bigger themes, of our attempts to make sense of the world while trying to find the right path and so often stumbling in the process. The playing on "I Don't Want to Understand" is masterfully poised on top of a great glacial drone, but Sakamoto and Willits chip great chunks out of it through off-key piano parts and shifting, itchy welts of noise. Those parts of Ancient Future are where it feels like Sakamoto and Willits are toying with us, trying to manipulate our emotions by constantly leaving the listener dangling in the unexpected for a few tantalizing seconds. On the aptly titled "Completion" they achieve their most harmonious manifestation of that tendency, with the two players edging toward songcraft and away from the tone-float that makes up much of this album.
In the hope if infusing a little classical into the electronic scene I introduce a diverse and somewhat intriguing duo Willits + Sakamoto, aka Christopher Willits and Ryuichi Sakamoto. San Fransisco and Tokyo raised respectively, their contrast in backgrounds works wonders when brought together. Their sound is ambient, classical and extremely tranquil
