Song of the day: ALVA NOTO & RYUICHI SAKAMOTO – Trioon 1 (2002)

Simple but beautiful. Sakamoto’s spare piano notes are underpinned by Carsten Nicolai’s even more minimal clicks and hiss on this track taken from the 2002 album Vrioon. The video translates the notes into blocks of light, like footprints (I wonder if they were inspired by Michael jackson’s “Billie Jean”?).
