2016 repress, originally released in 2006. The EP Revep is a continuation of the collaboration between Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto, and offers a previously-unreleased extract of this musical exchange which started with Vrioon (2002) and found its temporary end with Insen (2005). Similar to its predecessors, Revep breaks the rules of traditional acoustics — the separation of sound and noise — in a mysterious manner. “You hardly can go further, hardly can get deeper into the structure of sounds — in order to discover a beauty never heard before.” –Tim Lorenz, Groove. In contrast to both predecessors, Revep presents “Ax Mr.L.,” a track where the artists fall back on an already renowned composition by Sakamoto — the theme music to the movie Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence with David Bowie, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Takeshi Kitano from 1983. 20-minute EP, housed in a fold-out digipak.
