Alva Noto’s Xerrox Meta Phaser
via Jessica Ekomane
It was at the time when having a desktop computer at home was still quite a new thing. When I discovered the album “Xerrox Vol. 2” I was quite mesmerized by those sounds I was hearing for the first time. I was playing this track “Xerrox Meta Phaser” quite loud one day on the PC, and my mum rushed into the room looking really mad and scared. She said “What did you do?! You broke the computer!”. That was a convincing enough argument that it must be good stuff and I should look into how it’s done.
