a break of 5 years, alva noto continues his xerrox series with »xerrox vol. 3«,
entitled "towards space", a journey that started with »xerrox vol.
1«, 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.
