Alva Noto – Transrapid, Transvision, Transspray
The “Transall” triptych was originally released on three cds: Transrapid, Transvision and Transspray. Across the 3 installments particular emphasis is put on the rhythmic aspects of minimalism, utilising Carsten Nicolai’s minimal intricacies in brilliant white surroundings. There’s a sharp clarity to Nicolai’s construction’s that’s hard to dismember – you know that you shouldn’t be able to relate to this music’s scattered trajectory emotionally, and yet, in between moments of microscopic dissection and unusual arrangements – the material works on an astonishingly moving level.
