CI / Diamond Version – Carsten Nicolai, Olaf Bender and Atsuhiro Ito

DiamondVersion_high copy

A collaborative performance by the duo of Alva Noto and Byetone (Carsten Nicolai and Olaf Bender, of the Raster-Noton imprint) accompanied by the Japanese artist Atsuhiro Ito, creator of the Optron (a musical instrument using modified fluorescent tubes as a sound source). Ito’s solos are an excellent abrasive counterpoint to Diamond Version’s pristine post-techno rhythms (and low-res screens), where discharges of sonic distortion compliment the masterful patterns.
