- Summvs by Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto
8/10 Ant Staff review, 09 June 2011
I'm fairly sure this is the fifth collaboration between Carsten Nicolai and Yellow Magic Orchestra's Ryuchi Sakamoto. All previous releases have been sublime and as expected this really is no different. What's so lush about their pairing is how they just compliment each other's sound perfectly. Sakamoto's keys are often pure but sometimes slightly processed while Alvo Noto's micro techno sounds shift things to another level entirely. Both artists working respectfully and never taking over proceedings too far in their own direction. Sure this really is fine art but it is also incredibly accessible and melodic at times. Sakamoto's playing is as haunting as ever and there is even a cover of Brian Eno's 'By This River' which is really gorgeous with pinprick sparkling tones and a hint of glitch action. Lovely stuff indeed and a great soundtrack to snoozeville.
