Double CD reissue of two historical tapes from the early Japanoise era. This albums offers pure “ANALOG NOISE” with varied timbre and string, keyboard, percussion. Inspired by DADA & Kurt Scwitters from which he took “MERZ” for his project name, this might be considered a New-DADA experiment…. These early tracks are not the overwhelming electronic noise that dominate their late 1980s & 1990s work but contain all the analog bluster, using electronics, strings, keyboards, pipe (?), loops and snare drum.
All sounds remasterd by Masami Akita in 2021 for CD re-edition
Special guest on “Solonoise 1”: Kiyoshi Mizutani.
