Pioneers in their own musical approaches, Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto, began their exploration of sound in the V.I.R.U.S series in 2002. With its impressionistic atmosphere, in this collaborative project two generations met and shared the idea of electronic music as an inspiration source for new musical structures exploring the blend of electronic and acoustic sounds into a meditative whole.

Pioneers in their own musical approaches, Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto, began their exploration of sound in the evocatively titled V.I.R.U.S series in 2002. After more than a decade from the release of the collection's final installment with "Summvs" in 2011, NOTON reissues all the five albums between June and October 2022.

 

With its impressionistic atmosphere, in this collaborative project two generations met and shared the idea of electronic music as an inspiration source for new musical structures. Over a series of five albums, Vrioon (2002),Insen (2005), Revep (2006), utp_ (2008), and summvs (2011), the duo have explored blending electronic and acoustic sounds into a meditative whole that is at once expressive, breathing and precision-engineered.

 

Remastered in collaboration with Calyx Mastering, the recordings of Vrioon, Insen, Revep, Utp_, and Summvs are made available on vinyl and CD under the title 'reMASTER, accompanied by exclusive, unreleased compositions and housed in a beautifully designed sleeve with original cover art by Carsten Nicolai.

 

 

INITIALLY RELEASED IN 2006, REVEP IS THE THIRD COLLABORATION ALBUM BETWEEN ALVA NOTO AND RYUICHI SAKAMOTO AND THE THIRD INSTALLMENT OF V.I.R.U.S.’S FIVE ALBUMS SERIES.


REMASTERED IN 2021 IN COLLABORATION WITH CALYX STUDIO, THE ALBUM’S RECORDINGS ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE NEW COMPOSITIONS TITLED CITY RADIEUSE, VERU 1, AND VERU 2.


CITY RADIEUSE WAS COMPOSED FOR THE 2012 SHORT CINEMATIC ESSAY TITLED CITÉ RADIEUSE AND PART OF CARSTEN NICOLAI’S FUTURE PAST PERFECT SERIES. THE VIDEO SHOT AT LE CORBUSIER’S UNITÉ D’HABITATION IN NANTES (CALLED ‘CITÉ RADIEUSE’) TAKES THE VIEWER THROUGH THE MODULAR SYSTEM AND DESIGN APPLIED TO THE RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS. THE FILM’S NARRATIVE UNFOLDS THROUGH A SEQUENCE OF IMAGES TRACKING THE APARTMENTS’ INDOOR SPACE AND DETAILS, AND POINTS TO THE DIFFERENT BENCHMARKS OF STANDARDIZED PRODUCTION AS THEY CORRELATE TO THEIR ENVIRONMENT AND ITS INHABITANTS.


THE ALBUM’S ORIGINAL RECORDINGS RESULTED FROM MUSICAL EXCHANGES THAT BEGAN WITH VRIOON AND REVOLVED AROUND A COLLABORATIVE ARRANGEMENT OF SAKAMOTO’S CLASSIC MERRY CHRISTMAS MR. LAWRENCE, THE THEME MUSIC TO THE 1983 MOVIE STARRING DAVID BOWIE, TAKESHI KITANO, AND RYUICHI SAKAMOTO HIMSELF.


IN REVEP, THE PIANO TAKES THE LEAD WHILE THE PADDED BASS AND PITCHED ELECTRONIC FREQUENCIES MARK SUDDEN CHANGE. DEEPLY EVOCATIVE AND EFFORTLESSLY COLLIDING WORLDS OF ANALOG BEAUTY AND DIGITAL MASTERY, THIS ALBUM IS CONSIDERED ANOTHER INDISPENSABLE RECORD FROM THE DUO’S ONGOING COLLABORATION.


ALBUM ART DESIGNED BY CARSTEN NICOLAI
MASTERING BY BO @ CALYX
