Product Description & Reviews

"Merzbient" was originally released in 2010 as a box set of twelve compact discs. The edition of 555 numbered copies sold out within weeks of its release and hailed by fans as some of Merzbow's best work. Now an expanded edition of 18 albums is being released in an edition of 222 numbered and signed copies. The music from the original CD release is presented on albums 1 to 15. Albums 16, 17 and 18 contain exclusive bonus material never released until today. This vinyl release of "Merzbient" is presented in lavish packaging, starting with a pair of custom-made foil-blocked boxes that look like large versions of the boxes made for the original CD edition. Each box holds nine LPs. Each record has full-color center labels, and comes in a full-color sleeve. Three inserts printed on textured paper complete the package. The records in the first 44 sets are pressed on translucent dark red vinyl. The remaining 178 copies are pressed in black vinyl. "Merzbient" is a collection of Merzbow's previously unreleased ambient recordings recorded in the late '80s and early '90s, at a time when Masami Akita (Merzbow) was becoming famous for his live performances. The records he released at the time mirrored the harsh electronic wall-of-sound style that characterized his performances and helped establish his reputation as the prime mover in the Japanese noise scene. The electronics he used for his recordings were the same ones he used for live shows. But at the same time he was also recording quieter, more atmospheric music at home, and using a wide variety of acoustic instruments including an impractical monstrosity he describes as a "big handmade junk instrument made from a metal box with piano wires", which he played with a violin bow. He made hours and hours of recordings, but kept them private and never released them, until eventually they were set aside and forgotten. After rediscovering them years later he remastered the music and named the collection "Merzbient".
