I think what I like most about SUMMVS is that it is neither here nor there, each track feels whole, not too Alva Noto or Ryuichi Sakamoto. Its not overtly electronic or acoustic, it's not purely intellectual or purely melodic, the compositions seem closer to Jazz yet not at all. SUMMVS seems to be about the right touch, the right balance of a collaboration which continues to uncover it's own unique language.

  • Like Eric Satie but contemporary

Nicolai works directly with the piano sounds, dismantling Sakamoto's recordings with "surgeon-like precision" into micro loops; into their atomic elements. Starting with these sound atoms, he creates a new basis for form, compressing, floating, and rotating rhythm with harmonic sequences and melodic counterpoints, and laying it underneath the piano tracks. This makes insen appear more complex, though the time-stretched flow and the clear lines of the piano stay untouched.
