*0 – (Label)

(Label) is a 2000 release by the Japanese ultra-minimalist *0 released on Fällt. (Label) is part of the invalidObject Series, a series of EPs by minimal composers, 15 tracks a minute each.

The idea behind *0 is that everything multiplied by 0 is nothing. So of course the songs are going to be very minimal. The songs range from barely audible sounds, panning single frequencies as pure as something pure, deep rumbling gradually oscillating faster and faster, songs that are mostly silent with clips of sounds here and there, and even some minimal glitch tracks similar to Ryoji Ikeda and Alva Noto. Lots of this album gets so minimal one could could have a conversation with it on max volume.

Download it here (I can’t find the album anymore on the label’s site)
