Carsten Nicolai (Alva Noto) creates precise rhythmic structures with electronic clicks and glitches as essential elements of his music, combining these pared-down electronic sounds with the rhythmic groove of hip hop and R&B. Nicolai’s works captivate consistently through their elegance, simplicity and cool technicism.
In his powerful live audiovisual performances, Nicolai produces sublime, post-techno grooves, accompanied by his now legendary synaesthetic video.
Transall was created by Carsten Nicolai in 2006. Tour produced by Forma.
