5th in a series of releases beween Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto and electronic artist Carsten Nicolai (Alva Noto), "Summvs" presents passionate minimal electronics, and includes a Cluster/Eno cover.  The new album will host its world premiere on may 12th, 2011 at the roundhouse in london and will be followed by a european tour called s in may/june 2011 with stations in rome, padua, graz, copenhagen, brussels, eindhoven, paris, frankfurt, bonn, berlin, leipzig and barcelona. The name of the artists' fifth collaborative album summvs triggers several associations. The title literally combines the latin word 'summa' (engl.: sum) and 'versus' (vs., engl.: opposite), stressing the collaborative idea behind the joint venture of these two exceptional artists, yet stressing their individual potentials. The initials of the five albums - vrioon, insen, revep, utp_ and now summvs - together form the word 'virus', concluding the series with a final infectuous twist. (label info)
