ALVA NOTO – UNIEQAV
The Uni series began when Alva Noto was booked to play live at the club UNIT in Tokyo and had to adapt his sound accordingly for that environment.
‘UNIEQAV’ follows-on from and develops the concept of Alva Noto’s ‘Unitxt’ and ‘Univrs’ albums, and completes the third part in the trilogy, whereby each record is both unique and part of the bigger picture. This is also mirrored in the artwork for each release, which when combined form a triptych spelling ‘Uni’.
Regarding Carsten’s interest in 3D sound design and building sonic spaces, ‘UNIEQAV’ transports the listener to a modern, spacious and Zen-like place for meditative movement. But conversely the album works equally well in a dark club – as for every glistening digital spark and simple, emotive melody – there’s a stealthy bassline, frenetic drum pattern and colossal low-end thump.
