ANBB is a collaborative project of electronic music composer / visual artist Alva Noto (Carsten Nicolai) and composer / voice-artist Blixa Bargeld (also known as singer of Einstürzende Neubauten and guitarist of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds). Being friends and admirers of each other’s work for a long time in 2007 they decided to join forces to play togethers.
ANBB developed a musical concept based on the combination of improvisation and abstraction. The impulsive live performance of Blixa Bargeld and the elaborated beat structures and sound landscapes of Alva Noto merge to a surprising and unexpected result. Working on their own experimental material that gains its strength from the spontaneity of the live performance of Bargeld’s voice as well as rethinking traditional songs in their own special manner, they deliver an outstanding and inspiring musical blend for their audience.
