ALVA NOTO + RYUICHI SAKAMOTO - INSEN (CD)


"on "vrioon", nicolai's typical sinus sounds counterbalanced sakamoto's piano accords. now, on "insen" nicolai works directly with the piano sounds. he dismantles sakamoto's recordings with a "surgeon-like precision" into micro loops, into its atomic elements. starting with these atoms of sound, he creates a new basis for form, compressing floating rotating rhythm with harmonic sequences, with melodic counterpoints, and laying it underneath the piano tracks. this makes "insen" appear more of a complex experience, although the time-stretched flow, or even the clear lines of the piano stay untouched."
