The duo’s self-titled debut will hit the shelves via Noton in November.
Alva Noto and French poet and sound artist Anne-James Chaton have teamed up as ALPHABET.
The duo will release a self-titled LP through Noton, the label Alva Noto, real name Carsten Nicolai, has been running since Raster-Noton split in 2017.

ALPHABET spans 13 tracks and is out on November 15th.
Releasing music since 2003, Chaton put out two albums on Raster-Noton in 2011 and 2012. The latter, Décade, was a collaboration with Alva Noto and Andy Moor.
ALPHABET have three live dates confirmed in October and November, with stops in Berlin, London and Barcelona.
