  1. it's pretty good, along with the new live album with ryuichi sakamoto oh by the way, in other news (unrelated to ALPHABET but related to alva noto):
  2. https://www.popmatters.com/bersarin-quartett-wenn-wir-wollen-2641305427.html?rebelltitem=1#rebelltitem1 A new single came out about a week ago: "Wenn wir nur wollen". Sounds pretty nice! For anyone who cares-- and really I should stop this topic bumping business-- the album can be preordered on Denovali stores. CD, 2xLP (Black, Turquoise), digital. https://denovali.com/store/bersarin-quartett-methoden-und-maschinen-black-vinyl-2xvinyl
  3. Excellent what he's doing here, but damn it, was really hoping to see legit re-releases of the pre-Zauberberg GAS stuff. :/
  4. The single is pretty good. The instrumental sounds like Prototypes-era Alva Noto but with the attention to detail that's present in his more recent work. Love it.
  5. https://noton.greedbag.com/buy/alphabet-6/ You can pre-order this on CD now. I guess there's no LP release?
  6. New single: "Das ist alles, was wir haben" https://spoti.fi/2MsE93y Probably on other streaming services? Iunno
  7. In other news, more Alva Noto. Tracklist, info (including 3 live tour dates), and a single can be found at this friendly RA link: https://www.residentadvisor.net/news/44625 On mobile, too lazy to copypaste it all out. Whatever. Cool! Also this is coming out on the same day as the other recently announced Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto album. Damn.
  8. Really glad that Alva Noto has been releasing a *ton* of stuff in the past couple years since Noton was revived. :^)
  9. Sorry for the long title :^) Released on NOTON. CD/LP can be purchased at https://noton.greedbag.com/buy/two-120/ On 15th November Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto present ‘TWO’, which captures the esteemed duo’s 2018 performance at Sydney Opera House. The concert saw the pair performing new improvised work and key collaborative compositions from their joint catalogue, which has now reached five albums, one major film score and an EP. Last year the duo undertook a series of live events entitled ‘TWO’ at Berlin’s Funkhaus, Barcelona’s Theatre Grec (closing Sonar Festival’s 25th Anniversary), London’s Barbican Centre and Melbourne’s Hammer Hall, before culminating at Sydney Opera House, where their two hour set was recorded and edited down, forming this album. “’TWO’’s pulsing, immersive live performance melded electronic and analogue instrumentation with striking visuals to create one of the most precise, beautiful and challengingly magnetic pieces we have ever had the privilege of staging. That Sakamoto and Noto are pleased enough with the recorded result to share its continuously unfolding, sinuous, questioning music with others is as singular an honour as it was for Sydney Opera House to host them." Ben Marshall - Head of Contemporary Music, Sydney Opera House. Sharing a deep simpatico synergy, Alva Noto’s abstract electronic formalism contrasts and compliments Sakamoto’s exquisitely elegant piano finesse, which incorporates an individualistic take on classical, contemporary, minimalism and even a touch of jazz. At points melodic, atmospheric, gently rhythmic, textural and spatial, audio headspaces range from intimate and serene womb-like flotation, infinite fathoms of dark metaphysical expanse and moments of devastatingly poignant beauty. The sparing, subtle use of parts populating the mix belies a deceptively effective whole, which indicates two masters’ skill and confidence in being able to say something profound with an intentionally restricted sonic vocabulary. At all times the album maintains a calm poise, and despite its improvised nature withholds an innate harmony and graceful order. Like two aural architects free-drawing, this is sound design for better living. Inosc Propho Trioon II (Live) Scape I Berlin (Live) Scape II Morning (Live) Iano (Live) Emspac Kizuna (Live) Gitrac Monomom Panois Naono (Live) The Revenant Theme (Live) So yeah.
  10. http://www.bersarin-quartett.de/ (audio sample of *something* played on the website) from the Facebook page: RELEASE 29.11.2019VINYL · CD · DOWNLOADDENOVALI Really excited for this. "III" a few years back was really enjoyable. Hope it's a good one. 🙂
  11. probably worth pointing out that a new cd / color-lp repress of An empty bliss is now up on boomkat as of a couple days ago 🙂 https://boomkat.com/products/an-empty-bliss-beyond-this-world
  12. https://kompakt.fm/releases/koenigsforst_3xlp_dl Comes out June 7th. Really excited for this, the Zauberberg repress was really nice :). I'm guessing we'll get the standalone POP repress this year too. Omg.
  13. Hi again again. Apologies for the huge bump, lol. This is out now for anyone who's interested. https://www.deejay.de/AOKI_takamasa_Internally_Combusted_VHS001_Vinyl__348628
  14. I have to say, Prototypes is a pretty fascinating release. It feels very generative in parts, but it's really cool to hear a couple sounds that would get used later on in the UNI releases. Letting that and Modul 4 (and Transform) share similar artwork with those releases is an awesome design choice. :P
