Biography

alva noto + ryuichi sakamoto with ensemble modern
utp_
release date: october 2008
on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of the city of mannheim alva noto (carsten nicolai)
and ryuichi sakamoto were invited to develop an audio-visual performance together with
ensemble modern. the concept of the arising piece named utp_ is derived from the rasterized
structure of mannheim (build as an ideal city in the 17th century) and also paying reference to
the musical history of the city.
the result of the collaboration like the former projects of alva noto and ryuichi sakamoto -

vrioon (2002), insen and revep (both 2005) - is a synergetic mixture of electronic and natural
sounds, that is expanded by the potential of the classical instruments of ensemble modern.
utp_, the title of the new composition is deduced from the term utopia and hence describes
an approach that leaves space for further extensive associations.
the dvd contains the utp_ concert movie and a utp_ ‘making of’ to document both the
developing process of the piece and the final result.
