    → La más depurada manifestación, por medio de la palabra (y de la música), de los sentimientos, emociones y reflexiones que puede expresar el ser humano en torno a la belleza, el amor, la vida o la muerte

    «Ultratumba» (áMarxe, Ferror Records, GH Records, 2021), our fifth work, is a family dialogue, full of sadness, acceptance and hope, that digs into the origin of melancholy. Recorded using only analogue synthesizers and voice – no sequencers or programming. It’s a piece of pure handcrafted electronica drawing on dark landscapes with the different layers of sound constantly fighting among themselves to stay centrestage. It evokes the sounds of drone and industrial music, but from a very personal perspective, displaying a musicality that transcends both genres.

  • Merzbow

    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.
