Uoon I - Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto, performed by Martin Reck & Olivia Zaugg (2022)


A live performed interpretation of the piece Uoon I by Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto. Timeless music that we wanted to get closer to.


"When it comes to music for piano and electronics, the album "Vrioon" by Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto is a great inspiration and reference for us. And - like a rock - it also represented an obstacle in a way. We, therefore, worked intensively on the first piece of the album, "Uoon I", to explore their sound world and to understand the subtleties of the composition. To do this I programmed a new instrument, the "Segment Assembler", to synthesize the electronic sounds in real-time."
