Product Description

2x12" release. Originally released in 2007; a co-release with iDEAL Recordings, Aleph-1 is a project by German sound-sculptor, Carsten Nicolai aka Alva Noto/Noto. Aside from his sound works under those pseudonyms, Aleph-1 is electronic music with an acoustic sound aesthetic that was especially developed for the iDEAL Recordings label. The concept of Aleph-1 derives from the theories of the mathematician Georg Cantor, who was teaching in Halle, Germany, a city to which Nicolai is deeply connected with through his family. The sound pieces of Aleph-1 deal with the idea of infinity in terms of structure and length. Without actual beginning or end, they fade in and out. The pieces have a very logically-constructed nature of overlapping tracks, which never seem to be the same, thus could be extended into infinity. The album consists of eight rhythmic circles, based upon acoustic material, at first sight very minimal but always carrying pulse and melody. Music you can lose yourself in. For a deeper knowledge of the term "Aleph-1," here's a short definition: in 1884, the term "Aleph-1" was introduced by Georg Cantor into the mathematical world. Since then, the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, combined with a number, has been used to represent the cardinality (or size) of infinite sets. The Aleph numbers differ from infinity, commonly found in algebra and calculus. Alephs measure the sizes of sets; infinity on the other hand, is commonly defined as an extreme limit of the real number line, or an external point of the extended real number line. While some Alephs are larger than others, infinity is just infinity. Housed in a heavyweight gatefold sleeve.
