Alva Noto + Ryuichi Sakamoto - Insen

With "insen", Alva Noto (aka Carsten Nicolai) and Ryuichi Sakamoto continue their collaboration which started with "vrioon". The debut album released on Raster-Noton in 2003 was voted 'Record of the Year 2004' in the electronica category by British magazine 'The Wire'. A particular interest was shown in Nicolai’s creation towards a new synergy of acoustic piano and digital post production that had not witnessed before, in his approach and interpretation of Sakamoto’s piano clusters.
