Mute are delighted to announce a special collaboration with Raster-Noton: the release of Diamond Version’s Technology At The Speed Of Life/ Empowering Change on 23 July, the first of a sequence of five 12″ EPs throughout 2012, culminating in an album in 2013.
Diamond Version is a collaborative project between two of the most groundbreaking, experimental and forward thinking creators in modern music, Byetone and Alva Noto.
As joint heads of the German-based label Raster-Noton, and with solo projects Alva Noto (Carsten Nicolai) and Byetone (Olaf Bender), they have been releasing work that spectacularly blurs the lines between the visceral and the conceptual, bridging the gap between gallery and dancefloor.
The release will be supported by audio-visual live performances with featured special guests and the premiere of Diamond Version TV, at Sónar 2012 on Saturday 16 June will feature Atsuhiro Ito.
