Ahead of its release...

Carter Tutti Void are streaming their live recording ‘Transverse’ ahead of its official release.

In one corner, two seminal musicians. Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti were lynchpins of Throbbing Gristle, with their own, ever evolving projects helping to invent the sonic lexicon for British electronic music.

In the other corner, a far younger musician from a different discipline. Factory Floor’s Nik Void agreed to work with Carter / Tutti as part of Mute’s Short Circuit festival, and the results are becoming increasingly influential.

A largely improvised set containing four pieces of material, Carter Tutti Void’s performance will be given an official release on Monday (March 26th). Previews have been coming in thick and fast, and now Mute have decided to stream ‘Transverse’ in its entirety.

Listen to the album below.

ClashMusic recently sat down with the trio to discuss the preparations and methodology which run through ‘Transverse’. Asked why they chose to release the performance as a live album, Cosey Fanni Tutti replied:

“It seemed to us that it would be just fine to complete the whole thing by releasing it as a live album. The whole concept and the whole journey and the whole wonderful experience we all had was all encapsulated in that album. It just seemed right for us to do that because so many people couldn’t get into the gig as the room was so small. There was that kind of sense of obligation as well.”

Watch out for the full interview next week.

‘Transverse’ will be released on March 26th.
