Alva Noto returns to Xerrox series for Vol. 4 on 2xLP





“Cinematic soundscapes, warm chords, thrumming digital ambiences and liquified electronics.”

Alva Noto, aka Carsten Nicolai, is releasing the fourth installment in his ongoing Xerrox series, via his NOTON label this June.

Nicolai’s Xerrox series revolves around the manipulation of data through endless reproduction, exploring how new sounds are created through copies.

For the fourth installment, Nicolai shunned the conceptualism and orderliness of prior releases, lacing sci-fi sound design through mists of melancholic ambient.

Xerrox Vol. 4 follows Nicolai’s ambient cover of the The Cure’s ‘A Forest’, also released on NOTON this April.
