Label: Elevator Bath
米レーベルElevator Bathが2008年に始めたピクチャーヴァイナルシリーズ。その6年振りの最新作にMerzbowでお馴染みの秋田 昌美 氏が本名名義で登場。毛羽立った感触にゴロゴロと転げ回る動き等、非常に物質感が強い[Wattle]なる2パートの録音。七面鳥を拡大したビクチャーヴァイナル仕様。限定270。
Elevator Bath's series of picture disc LPs (each record being adorned with full-color artwork by the recording artist) comes to its conclusion with a top-notch new release from the great Masami Akita.
Wattle is a new, two-part composition featuring Akita's traditional soup of unidentifiable metallic clanging, crushing feedback, jagged white noise, and various effects. It does not disappoint. There are no drums, no guitars, no vocals; just scorching electronic mayhem of the highest quality.
The colorful images here are based on photographs shot and subtly manipulated by Masami Akita, who sends the following message:
"Turkey is beautiful animal and do not eat them."
Masami Akita is, of course, the artist behind the seminal, vegan, straight edge, noise project, Merzbow. He lives in Tokyo.
This picture disc LP has been released in an edition of 270 copies. Every copy purchased directly from Elevator Bath will include a download code for high quality files of the entire audio content of this LP.
