Transverse, a unique collaboration from Chris Carter & Cosey Fanni Tutti (Throbbing Gristle) and Nik Void (Factory Floor) will be released by Mute on 26 March 2012.
Created especially for the legendary Short Circuit presents Mute festival at the Roundhouse, London in 2011, the tracks were prepared in the studio and then performed and recorded live in front of an audience. Outside of the trio, these recordings were unheard prior to the festival and the popularity of the performance left many being turned away at the door.
Full 9 minute version of V3 appears on the Transverse album

First things first, if you are not familiar with the highly influential proto-industrial work of Throbbing Gristle, then you truly owe it to yourself to check the legends out.
Secondly, if you missed Factory Floor’s latest 12 inch,Two Different Ways, click below. The sweaty greatness of the liquid stress and release in this track almost convinced me that DFA may not be past it’s prime… almost.
Now you can fully appreciate the excitement that comes with this statement: Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti of Throbbing Gristle and Factory Floor’s Nick Void have collaborated under the name Carter Tutti Void and will be dropping a full length on 3/26 via MUTE entitled Transverse. Our first preview of this collab is a four minute snippet of “V3,” one of just four tracks on the album, which all hover around ten minutes in length. In this clip we get a warped snickering groove that thumps ahead entrancingly. Next to that new Swans album and the impending apocalypse, this is what I’m most excited for this year.
