Pulse Demonは過去2回再発されているが、今回初めてリマスターを自分で行った。
ている。それぞれのDATはPulse Demonで使用した音源以外のものも含んでいた。
トラック6と7が一番後の録音である。Pulse DemonはRelapse Recordsからの2
に比べ、Pulse DemonはよりMerzbowの自然体で作っている。私がEMSシンセサ
*** MASAMI AKITA (2022)

Pulse Demon has been reissued twice in the past, but this is the first time I’ve remastered it myself.
Originally multiple DAT tapes recorded from September to November 1995. track 1 to 5
5 are recorded in the first DAT, tracks 6 and 7 are recorded in the second, and track 8 is recorded in the third DAT.
Each DAT contained more than just the sounds used on Pulse Demon.
Tracks 6 and 7 are the last recordings. Pulse Demon 2 from Relapse Records
It’s a work, but it’s a work that Venereology, the first work, made with a strong awareness of Death Metal.
Compared to , Pulse Demon is more of a Merzbow natural. I used an EMS synthesizer
I think one of the reasons for that is that it was an early work that introduced the synthesizer.
