r-n at mutek montreal 2009

raster-noton @ mutek montreal 09, feat. alva noto, byetone and atom tm
SAT, montreal, quebec

a very special raster-noton showcase, featuring the label’s most durable attractions in their most bristling and conceptual post-industrial guises: ryoji ikeda + carsteb nicolai – cyclo., alva noto, atom™, and byetone.

the evening began with the north american premiere of ryoji ikeda and carsten nicolai's reunion as cyclo., the pairing that wowed audiences last in the early 2000’s and has been mostly silent since then.
uwe schmidt, the german expatriate currently living in chile, reprised his role as atom™.
next, carsten nicolai returned to the stage solo to present his much-heralded alva noto compositions.
finally, olaf bender brought the mighty byetone to life with the rock-driven teutonic beats that have made his recent records so collectible.
