anbb (Alva Noto & Blixa Bargeld) - Ret Marut Handshake Vinyl

2010; 5 tracks

Alva Noto & Blixa Bargeld, two of the most fascinating German experimental musicians of today, unite for this stunning new collaborative venture - anbb. These two seemingly strange bedfellows have long admired one another's work and the project has itself been a long-term concern, in development since 2007. Bargeld lends his vocal to Nicolai's soundscapes, a formula that in theory might lead to an end product resembling Alan Vega's work with Pan Sonic. There is, however, something rather more immediately synergetic about this project, and Bargeld's voice embeds itself very naturally within Nicolai's seemingly inhospitable, yet ever-inscrutable production.
