techno and few other intelligent things

Carsten Nicolai talks about his research and work.

Here is a very interesting interview with Carsten Nicolai aka Alva Noto, artist and owner of German based experimental electronic label known as Raster-Noton, probably the best avant-garde electronic music label in the world today, at least that I know 🙂

The other half of Raster-Noton is Olaf Bender, also known as Byetone. really these two guys are so good that you ears won’t believe it.

Based in Chemnitz, Germany, Raster-Noton merged in 1999 from separate labels Rastermusik and Noton (Archiv für Ton und Nichtton). The collective label’s aesthetic focus is rhythmic, minimal electronic music alternating between glitchy and ambient textures and industrial electric flares.

in this interview Mr. Nicola explains his view and attitude towards electronic music production and multimedia.

He’s a genius and I thank him for his work.

the interview I got it from Variety Of Sound.

Also make sure to check Raster-Noton’s splendid catalogue.
