After a break of 5 years, Alva Noto continues his xerrox series with “Xerrox vol. 3“, entitled “towards space”, a journey that started with “Xerrox vol. 1”, referring to the “old world”, and “Xerrox vol. 2”, heading “to the new world”.
On “Xerrox vol. 3”, a new aspect enters the scene. inspired by childhood film memories from the 1970s including Tarkovsky‘s adaption of “Solaris” and “La Isla Misteriosa y el Capitán ENemo” based on Jules Verne‘s “The Mysterious Island”, the record shows Alva Noto‘s private side. with its very intimate atmosphere, it is a personal reflection of dreams, an imaginary journey through emotional landscapes or, as he himself puts it, a “cinematographic emotion of a soundtrack to a film that actually does not exist in reality.”
Alva Noto himself further states, “I see “Xerrox vol. 3” as my most personal album so far. I have to admit that this emotional output is a surprise even for myself. it remains exciting how the last two albums of this series will sound like.”
