Ryuichi Sakamoto is scoring Luca Guadagnino’s new film, The Staggering Girl

The short film stars Julianne Moore and is out February 15

Ryuichi Sakamoto is composing the score to Luca Guadagnino’s The Staggering Girl.

The Japanese musician and Yellow Magic Orchestra legend revealed the details on Instagram. The soundtrack arrives on February 14 via Milan Records, with the film itself set to land on streaming service MUBI the following day on February 15.

The Staggering Girl first premiered at the 72nd Annual Cannes Film Festival in May last year. The short film sees the Call Me by Your Name and Suspiria director teaming up with star Julianne Moore, and was produced in collaboration with Valentino’s creative director, Pierpaolo Piccioli.

“When approaching the score for The Staggering Girl, I wanted to incorporate the tactile sound of Valentino’s fabrics,” Sakamoto said in a statement. “So I asked them to send me some samples and utilising special sensitive microphones, I experimented ‘playing’ the fabrics. I love the sound and how it forces one's attention to a sound all around us, yet almost entirely ignored.”
