One buyer of the Blu-ray at Amazon wrote the following review:

Slow but ultimately involving documentary that starts with the unlikely unearthing of a radioactive piano found after the worst Nuclear meltdown in Japanese history. The docu also follows film composer Sakamoto as he explores other means to create sounds for future and past projects (including THE REVENANT). Certainly a MUST-WATCH for students of musical composition who are interested in working on film projects, but still interesting for those fascinated by artists and how they go about their work in daily life. Make sure you have a little caffeine before starting the DVD as the pace is a bit slow and some of the music might not only hypnotize you but knock you out (literally) ;)

Sad coincidence: Bernardo Bertolucci, one of the spoken word-actors in the track Fullmoon (written by Paul Bowles and taken from "The Sheltering Sky") died this week.

David posted a tweet regarding the story about Bertolucci and the rather unsavory nature of how an infamous anal rape scene in Last Tango in Paris came into being?... the post has since been removed as he has a habit of doing. Not sure what to make of it, but there seems to be so much stuff being dragged out about so many people.

Anyway, moving on... Coda arrived, but my wife snatched it away and is not letting me have it until Christmas.... boo! :(

So I won't be able to comment on it for a while... The Amazon review you posted makes me all the more anxious to see it, and slow (which seemed to be the only negative) I don't mind at all, in fact it would seem odd to me if the film wasn't slow.
