[N-055S1] Alva Noto + Ryuichi Sakamoto - Monomom [NOTON]
digital strategy & press
words: maria orciuoli
NOTON is pleased to announce the reissue of Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto’s V.I.R.U.S. series to be released in 2022. The first single Monomom will be available digitally on December 17th.
“Monomom was recorded during our last tour in Australia. The live version was released on the album ‘TWO. Live at the Sydney Opera House’, and we are now sharing a studio version of the track with the same title. This track is also the forerunner of the reissue of the first five albums of Alva Noto + Ryuichi Sakamoto. We have always enjoyed playing this piece live and are very excited to share the studio version with everyone. It is important to us that this composition is released in a time of reflection and celebration of the new year. We hope that its positive, at times gloomy atmosphere will encourage to look ahead.” - Carsten Nicolai
Vrioon, Insen, Revep, Utp_, and Summvs will be released individually on vinyl and CD between June and October 2022. The five albums were remastered this year in close collaboration with Calyx Mastering and will be released on NOTON under the title ‘reMASTER’. Each reissue will include remastered versions of the original recordings as well as unreleased compositions. In November 2022, a limited edition Boxset containing all five albums will be available.
