Analog & Digital Chemistry (“Reverso”).

This is another song by Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto that was performed at the Cocoon Club in Frankfurt several months ago.  One of the key benefits of seeing them live is witnessing the graphical representation of their music shown directly behind the duo.  The imagery is created via complex computer algorithms programmed to be directly in sync with the music.

While there are many examples of this on YouTube, I’ve chosen to link to the original track below.

This song is incredible.

Alva Noto + Ryuichi Sakamoto

I am planning to see Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto in late May at the Cocoon Club in Frankfurt, Germany.  I stumbled upon them while searching for clubs in the area, hoping to time my visit with electronica artists with which I am already familiar.  Needless to say, I was thrilled to learn about them and to get an opportunity to see them live.

While their music pushes the limits of minimalism and experimentation (even for me), it’s worth watching the entire video below.  It’s fascinating to see how Sakamoto is intensely in-tune with Noto’s electronic “foundation” and how the timing throughout this song goes beyond perfection.
