Alva Noto + Ryuichi Sakamoto is a collaboration project between the German minimalist and audiovisual artist Carsten Nicolai (Alva Noto) & the contemporary Japanese pianist and composer Ryuichi Sakamoto. In this co-operation, two different generations meet and share the idea of electronic music as an inspiration source for new musical structures. Alva Noto processes the sounds from Sakamoto’s piano, creating a mixture of solo piano and glitchy micro electronic sounds.
