Richard Pinhas/Merzbow "Keio Line"

Although I know Pinhas' work pretty well, I am almost totally unfamiliar with Merzbow (though I had heard the name before). Therefore I thought I'd let the label tell you about this one. From the Cuneiform website: "Richard and Merzbow are both among the best-known figures in electronic rock music today. Merzbow is considered the originator of Japanese noise music and the single best-known artist in noise music today. While Richard's work wouldn't be considered to be strictly in the 'noise' arena, many of the artists in the field have expressed great interest in his pioneering use of synthesizers and electronics in rock and contemporary music from the 1970s until the present. Despite coming from very different backgrounds, they had long expressed admiration for each others work. Given all of this, it is probably not surprising that the most important electronic musicians of France and Japan should finally collaborate together! During Richard's second tour of Japan in the fall of 2007, he performed with Merzbow in what Richard called, "an incredible concert". A week later, at the end of this tour, they booked two days in the studio to work together again, this time on a recording. All material was recorded completely live by the two musicians, with extensive work done in the mix and re-mix stage. Keio Line (the name refers to the name of the train Richard and Masami would take from downtown Tokyo to the recording studio) is a two CD set, released at a special price, that is violent, soothing, hypnotic, noisy and trance-inducing. All aboard the Keio Line!"
