YMO in New York
1st Edition, 1993
A book that documents the time spent by Yellow Magic Orchestra, also known as YMO, in New York City while creating their 1993 reunion album Technodon, as captured by Nan Goldin. The Japanese electronic music group, formed in 1978 of legendary musicians Haruomi Hosono, Yukihiro Takahashi and Ryuichi Sakamoto, found international success as pioneers of the Electropop genre, known as Techno-pop in Japan, and thus triggered its wave of popularity in the 1980s. While working on what also became their final album as a unit, recorded 10 years after their initial disbandment, Goldin offers a sincere and intimate peek into the distinctly New York City activities of the three men; partying, shopping at Barney’s and sleeping in a fully dressed bed surrounded by bouquets of roses in Central Park.
