alva noto’s new album univrs [/ˈjuːnɪ,vɜːs/] is focussed on the conceptual differentiation of a universal language ('universum/universal' = unity, entirety). For the track uni acronym alva noto works again with the french voice artist Anne-James Chaton. The track and video is based on a number of 208 three-letter acronyms (set in alphabetical order) creating a random narrative.

Carsten Nicolai, born 1965 in Karl-Marx-Stadt, is a visual artist, composer and musician who lives and works in Berlin and Chemnitz. As a visual artist mainly creating objects and installations, Nicolai seeks to overcome the separation of the art forms and genres to sensitize human perception to the interconnection of the different sensory levels. Nicolai received numerous prizes and stipends, such as Villa Massimo, Rome (2007), Zurich Prize, Basle (2007), Villa Aurora, Los Angeles (2003), Golden Nica, Ars Electronica, Linz (2000 und 2001), F6-Philip Morris Graphik-Preis, Dresden (2000). His works have been shown at national and international major exhibitions in prestigious galleries and museums. As well his works have been acquired by prominent private and public collections worldwide.

For several years now Nicolai has released albums under the pseudonyms noto and alva noto which he has presented at live shows in national aand international concert halls, clubs and museums. He has cooperated with renowned composers and musician including Ryuichi Sakamoto, Blixa Bargeld, Ryoji Ikeda, Michael Nyman, Mika Vainio, Olaf Bender + Frank Bretschneider (signal), as well as with diverse orchestras for modern music, such as Ensemble Modern, BCN 216 and zeitkratzer.
