Performance by Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto.

This Performance was recorded at Philip Johnson's Glass House in Connecticut.

When Yayoi Kusama provided an installation at the house to mark the 110th anniversary of Johnson's birth,Sakamoto and Alva Noto (real name Carsten Nicolai) then performed at a private event in the house to help launch Kusama's work .

Sakamoto says "When I was offered to perform at The Glass House, the first idea that came to my mind was to use the house itself as a musical instrument," "It was completely musical and 100 percent improvised, as that's what we usually do. Looking at the beautiful landscape through the glass wall with Kusama's dots was something, and it affected me, affected us, I should say, a lot. It's a strange mixture of natural, nature, and artificial things, art."

This film and sounds are awesome. So If you are interested,please watch it . ♬

LP titled "GLASS" which recorded this performance will be released next month. So I'm looking forward to release it.
