Sales Information

being friends and admirers of each other’s work for a long time, electronic
music composer / visual artist alva noto (carsten nicolai) and composer / voiceartist
blixa bargeld (also known as singer of einstürzende neubauten and guitarist
of nick cave and the bad seeds) decided to join forces to initiate a collaborative
project in 2007.
together they developed a musical concept based on the combination of
improvisation and abstraction. the impulsive live performance of blixa bargeld and
the elaborated beat structures and sound landscapes of alva noto merge to a
surprising and unexpected result. working on their own experimental material that
gains its strength from the spontaneity of the live-performance of bargeld’s voice as
well as rethinking traditional songs in their own special manner, they deliver an
outstanding and inspiring musical blend for their audience.
“crystalline noise formations. phrases, words, syllables of pure sound isolated
until normal sense disappears, leaving new, unexpected abstractions to emerge.
[...] the most suggestive and nuanced version of ‘i wish i was a mole in the ground’
since bob dylan.” – sam davies (the wire 12/09, uk)
the collaboration first staged in september 2007 when they united for a special
appearance in san francisco to perform at recombinant media labs studios. since
then they have recorded several tracks, five of which have been released on the
preliminary EP ‘ret marut handshake’ on raster-noton (r-n 120) in june 2010.
the full length album (on CD and 2LP) called ‘mimikry’ is released on rasternoton
(r-n 121) in october 2010. for its ten tracks the album will readopt two
original tracks and two alternative versions from the EP while additionally
introducing six completely new songs. as a very special feature ‘katze’ and
‘mimikry’ will feature vocals/words by the model veruschka (known from the movie
‘blow up’ by m. antonioni). the album will be released with a special 16 page
booklet that will present original text/drawings of blixa bargeld that developed
during the recordings.
the album release will be followed by a live tour at various festivals and concert
halls around europe in august/september 2010.
