Boomkat Product Review:
Proper, um, conceptronica from Alva Noto + Anne-James Chaton, bridging Middle Ages texts and modern electronic minimalism to reflect on how we perceive ourselves in the digital world
“ALPHABET takes its inspiration from the Etymologies of Isidore of Seville – a gargantuan encyclopaedia from the seventh century and the most widely-used textbook of the Middle Ages. TakingEtymologies as its starting point, ALPHABET explores the strategies man devised to represent the world and applies them to the digital age. It’s a piece that invites the spectator to immerse themselves in the multiple relationships between, language, its digital translations and our understanding of the world.
It’s the latest in many collaborations between the pair. Their various projects blend machinery and language, creating a dense electronic sound structure. With ALPHABET – also being released as a record – they speak a new language generated by the fusion of objective poetry and minimal music.”
