This album is collaboration between two influential musicians in the electronica scene.
Carsten Nicolai aka Alva Noto - He's a sound artist who uses sound to create microscopic sounds to fabricate an electronic world of glitches and noises. He's known to create music from sounds people usually overlook such as the sounds of a modem, telephone pops and clicks and fax tones.
He also works as a visual artist; by using the principles of Cymatics he visualizes sound. He works without sequencers but mathematically edits his work to give his compositions precise rhythmic structures.
Ryuichi Sakamoto - He's an Academy award, Grammy and Golden Globe winning musician, composer, record producer and actor. He resides in Tokyo, Japan and New York, USA. He's more known as the keyboard player in the electropop band 'Yellow Magic Orchestra’. He’s also a film composer and has written scores and recorded music for films like, The Last Emperor, Little Buddha, Babel, Tony Takitani, Forbidden Colours, Snake Eyes, Wild Palms and many more. His main instrument is the keyboard and piano.
Together these musicians create an album that anyone's ears will like. Mixing the soft chords and delicate melodies of Ryuichi Sakamoto with the deep, minimal, glitchy sounds of Alva Noto.
