UNIEQAV is the third instalment in his Uni series, which “began when Alva Noto was booked to play live at the club UNIT in Tokyo, and had to adapt his sound accordingly for that environment”, following Unitxt and Universe.

It also features a collaboration with French sound poet Anne-James Chaton.

UNIEQAV is preceded by live improvisational album Glass, created with maestro Ryuichi Sakamoto, which will be released in February, as well as Nicolai’s 2016 Vinyl Factory Editions bausatz noto 12×10” multi-coloured box set.
