ALVA NOTO & RYUICHI SAKAMOTO – interview at DANCITY FESTIVAL

February 26, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Although not brand new – it is still worth posting

The collaboration between Ryuichi Sakamoto and Alva Noto began in 2003, year in which the first album of this new project, “Vrioon”, came to light. After having followed up their debut in March 2005 with “Insen”, the Japanese-German duo began a series of theatre concerts, which aims explicitly at the combination between music and visual installations. The stage presents Sakamoto’s piano along with Alva Noto’s desk, with two laptops and electronic instruments. On the background, the images which seems to follow Sakamoto’s music meticulously. The essence is seized visually upon listening to this music, so unattainable and precise, but at the same time alive and not exclusively metaphysical.
The landscapes described by the collaboration between Ryuichi Sakamoto and Alva Noto are able to interpret the duality of our times, the contrasts that create a world. From the essence of Japan to the visionary research of Germany, the fragility of the past is in contrast with the hardness of the new world, creating in our time an overwhelming moment at the exact point of their encounter. A journey into the paranormal possibility that binds us simultaneously to this world and to the other, to be able to see yet another.
