After a break following the 2009 release of Xerrox Vol. 2, Alva Noto continues
his Xerrox series with Xerrox Vol. 3, titled Towards Space. This is a journey that
started with Xerrox Vol. 1 (R-N 078CD, 2007), referring to the ''old world,'' and
Xerrox Vol. 2, heading ''to the new world.'' Using the process of copying as a
basis, the Xerrox series deals with the manipulation of data by means of endless
reproduction. Due to the inherent vice of the procedure that becomes especially
visible when copies are made from copies, everyday sounds are so much altered
that they can be hardly associated with the source material anymore. As a result,
entirely new sounds are created that, being copies of originals, become originals
themselves. On Xerrox Vol. 3, a new aspect enters the scene. Inspired by
childhood film memories from the 1970s including Tarkovsky's adaption of
Solaris (1972) and La isla misteriosa y el capit?n nemo (1973), based on Jules
Verne's The Mysterious Island, the album 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.'' Alvo Noto 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.''
