    Merzbow (メルツバウ Merutsubau) is a Japanese noise project started in 1979 by Masami Akita (秋田 昌美 Akita Masami).

    The name Merzbow comes from the German dada artist Kurt Schwitters’ artwork Merzbau, in which Schwitters transformed the interior of his house using found objects. The name was chosen to reflect Akita’s dada influence and junk art aesthetic. In addition to this, Akita has cited a wide range of musical influences from progressive rock, heavy metal, free jazz, and early electronic music to non-musical influences like dadaism, surrealism, and fetish culture. Since the early 2000s, he has been inspired by animal rights and environmentalism, and began to follow a vegan, straight edge lifestyle.

    As well as being a prolific musician, he has been a writer and editor for several books and magazines in Japan, and has written several books of his own. He has written about a variety of subjects, mostly about music, modern art, and underground culture.

    An unusual MERZBOW double CD album.
    Two very different CD’s boundedin one unique album:
    § On one disc sounds are more «Ambient Style» with a free piano and many field recordings, far and rumbling rythms and rumours (The Piano Lento ma non Troppo Madness)

    § On other disc sounds are explong deep into «Poly-Rhythmic’s», continuosly beating & popping plus additionall sqeezeing & exploding sounds
    (The Pop-Corn Psychedelia), to me this is the soundtrack for a new psychedelic dance.

    A different & very intriguing «MERZBOW / HERMAPHRODITIC» sound.

    Special «Hermaphriditic» art-work by Lilian Pelizzari Giust.

    New full length album by one of France’s most singular contemporary composer. Reflecting on ancient culture’s use and reverence for emblematic monuments which most often represent myths and stories, the album’s narrative has been infused with such symbolic and depicts an envisioned mythology, unfolding through it’s 10 aural pieces. Franck Vigroux‘s music is unique and comprised of tectonic tension, pulsating rhythms and abrasive analog textures like few can produce. Applying his own calculated personal signature in his sonic explorations his distinctiveness comes not only by his unique approach to sound but also by his incorporation of new media practices and performing arts into his A/V work.
