Yes please!

HOLY SHIT LET'S GO Here's what the tracklist seems to be, based off of the Instagram post: 01 Xerrox Kirlian (06'12'') 02 Xerrox Neige (04'56'') 03 Xerrox Voyage (03'50'') 04

Genuinely excited about hearing this record. Only a few days to go now. I just have the feeling he's on fire at the moment. The two singles are perfect and A Forest is also brilliant

Nice. I hope it's closer in line with 1 or 2 than 3, which I thought was a slight drop off in quality.

3 was ok, but felt like a completely different sound compared to the first 2 releases. Xerrox 1 & 2 are absolute classics.

For sure - I definitely liked 3 but it was no 1 or 2 ... The third one really reminded me of the OST to an indie game called Knytt Underground:

There titles are making reference to the sea a lot... maybe it's how it's be under-titled?

(X V1: Old World, X V2: To the New World, X V3: Towards Space)

I did a Google search just last week to see if there was any news on a fourth volume, being listening to the first two loads recently. Never got into the third, maybe it's time to revisit...

Here's some neat information for Volume 4 for anyone curious:

https://inverted-audio.com/feature/alva-noto-reflects-on-his-collaborations-with-ryuichi-sakamoto-anne-james-chaton/

from the end of this interview:

And what are your plans for next year?

Right now I’m starting to record ‘Xerrox Volume 4’ – I’ve already started working on it for a couple of months….the obsession with copying and more melodic ambient non rhythmic stuff. I would love to finish that by the end of the year and then maybe put it out by the end of March 2020.

They seem to be getting more melodic these Xerrox releases?

Yes, at the beginning they were more experimental and noisy. Volume 3 was much more melodic in a way and less experimental. I became very interested in more of a cinematic experience of the Xerrox pieces so I’ve been creating something that would work like a soundtrack and I think this is the reason as well that I was involved in ‘The Revenant‘ soundtrack. We are planning a really interesting show for Xerrox in London in 2020, I’m not sure if I can mention it but…

also here's the album cover, confirmed on his insta back in january :)

I'm not going to pretend like I'm not sad the noisier elements are getting buried further.

Saw Xerrox Vol 1 live back in 2006. One of the finest shows I’ve attended. I hope he’ll tour Vol 4 as well.

      New artist and forthcoming release on Alva Noto's label next year, single released today. 
      Quite stripped down and minimal, brings to mind Ø and Raime a little bit. "I like it. It's got that it's-a-cruel-world-let's-throw-ourselves-in-the-abyss type ambience."

      On mobile, too lazy to copypaste it all out. Whatever. Cool!
       
      Also this is coming out on the same day as the other recently announced Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto album. Damn.

      Sorry for the long title :^)
      Released on NOTON.
      CD/LP can be purchased at https://noton.greedbag.com/buy/two-120/

      On 15th November Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto present ‘TWO’, which captures the esteemed duo’s 2018 performance at Sydney Opera House. The concert saw the pair performing new improvised work and key collaborative compositions from their joint catalogue, which has now reached five albums, one major film score and an EP.

      Last year the duo undertook a series of live events entitled ‘TWO’ at Berlin’s Funkhaus, Barcelona’s Theatre Grec (closing Sonar Festival’s 25th Anniversary), London’s Barbican Centre and Melbourne’s Hammer Hall, before culminating at Sydney Opera House, where their two hour set was recorded and edited down, forming this album.
      “’TWO’’s pulsing, immersive live performance melded electronic and analogue instrumentation with striking visuals to create one of the most precise, beautiful and challengingly magnetic pieces we have ever had the privilege of staging. That Sakamoto and Noto are pleased enough with the recorded result to share its continuously unfolding, sinuous, questioning music with others is as singular an honour as it was for Sydney Opera House to host them." Ben Marshall - Head of Contemporary Music, Sydney Opera House.
      Sharing a deep simpatico synergy, Alva Noto’s abstract electronic formalism contrasts and compliments Sakamoto’s exquisitely elegant piano finesse, which incorporates an individualistic take on classical, contemporary, minimalism and even a touch of jazz.
      At points melodic, atmospheric, gently rhythmic, textural and spatial, audio headspaces range from intimate and serene womb-like flotation, infinite fathoms of dark metaphysical expanse and moments of devastatingly poignant beauty.
      The sparing, subtle use of parts populating the mix belies a deceptively effective whole, which indicates two masters’ skill and confidence in being able to say something profound with an intentionally restricted sonic vocabulary.
      At all times the album maintains a calm poise, and despite its improvised nature withholds an innate harmony and graceful order. Like two aural architects free-drawing, this is sound design for better living.
       
      Inosc Propho Trioon II (Live) Scape I Berlin (Live) Scape II Morning (Live) Iano (Live) Emspac Kizuna (Live) Gitrac Monomom Panois Naono (Live) The Revenant Theme (Live) So yeah.
