Carsten Nicolai, A.K.A. Alva Noto is a German multidisciplinary artist, known for both his solo music and for being part of Signal and Cyclo, as well as collaborating with Ryuichi Sakamoto on several occasions, one of them culminating in the album, Vrioon.
His music has a minimalist sound, transformed by oscillators and tone generators. His compositions are based on mathematical laws that result in very precise rhythmic structures.
He will perform at MIRA 2022 presenting his ninth studio album, UNIEQAV alongside Japanese visual artist Ken Niibori. This album, released under the Noton label and the last of his trilogy, represents an underwater immersion and oscillates between techno, ambient and drone.
