carsten nicolai, aka alva noto, continues to evolve with his collaborations with Ryuichi Sakamoto and "xerrox," and his latest work, "unitxt," is the soundtrack of digital files such as jepg and excel! After releasing "transall cycle" and "xerrox", alva noto releases "unitxt", a sequel to "transspray ep" released in 2004. Recorded during raster-noton's Japan tour from 2006 to 2007, and finalized in Berlin in early 2008, the album is a masterpiece of alva noto's ever-evolving concept sound with a more rhythmic approach. The concept was already presented in the "innocence - alva noto unitxt remodel 12" version" included in bj?rk's "innocence ep" released last year. Unitxt" means rhythm as a lingua franca, and text as a unit of composition. For example, mathematics: constants, measurements, identifiers, SI systems, etc. are expressed by the sounds and words that make up the symbols. The name of the album - 'unit' - is the name of a club in Daikanyama, Tokyo, where the tracks are assembled on a 120 bpm grid to form different rhythmic units, or modules. The title of the album - the name of the club in Daikanyama, Tokyo - is the name of a club in Daikanyama, Tokyo, where different rhythmic units or modules are organized by assembling tracks on a 120 bpm grid. u_08-1," and "u_07" is the first of the two. u_07" is based on the concept of 'the artist who does sound' (the artist who emits sound), and describes himself by translating notes in his wallet, credit cards, bills, nouns, etc., written by carsten nicolai, a.k.a. alva noto. and describes himself. In "u_08-1," anne-james chaton uses a simple but infinite mathematical concept, the golden ratio division of numbers. The 15 tracks from track 11 are the core recordings of unitxt. These sounds are converted from digital files such as jpeg and excel. In late June 2008, unitxt released a collaborative work with Ryuichi Sakamoto, "utp_" (a video of an event held in Mannheim, Germany, to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the German government). In late June 2008, he will release "utp_" (DVD, CD & sheet music), a collaboration with Ryuichi Sakamoto, which is a film of the event held in Mannheim, Germany to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Japanese government. In addition, at OPEN SPACE 2008, currently being held at ICC (NTT InterCommunication Center), he exhibited "invertone" as carsten niccolai, which allows visitors to experience a state of silence through the phase action of sound. In addition to playing throughout Europe, "unitxt" will be touring in North America in May 2008, South America in October 2008, and Japan in November 2008. The latest album "unitxt" is the masterpiece of alva noto, who always continues to evolve and improve wherever he goes!
