The latest LP in the series is reportedly more melodic and conventional than past editions.
Carsten Nicolai, AKA Alva Noto, is releasing Xerrox Vol. 4 on June 19th.
The fourth volume in the series, which started in 2007, continues the theme of re-sampling samples until they’re unrecognizable. This time, however, the sounds are arranged in a more melodic, approachable way, according to label Noton. Listen to clips over at Bleep.
The last Xerrox came out in 2015. There’s a fifth one planned to end the series, though there’s no word yet on when that might come out.
Earlier this year, Nicolai released a cover of The Cure’s “A Forest, and last year put out collaborative albums with Anne-James Chaton and Ryuichi Sakamoto.
