and also hot sex
a rip of it exists but it just plays through each groove once and then moves on to the next one, kinda ruins the nature of the record
other than that, nothing
talking of RRR locked groove records, anyone here own RRR-1000? how is it? great lineup/concept and i'm really curious about how they all made use of the nature of the record
why is good noise so hard to make? every time i try i get incredibly bored and disillusioned with what i'm doing and put it away in disgust.
like, how does a masterpiece like merzbow's antimonument, venereology, etc even come to exist? he's a master at it. i hate when people think noise is some kind of lazy man's "anyone can do it" music. sure, anyone can make noise, but it takes something else to make artful noise.
I've got it. Beyond the incredible groove density (which makes it nearly impossible to find a specific track if you're looking for it - a huge problem for trying to get a good rip out of it), it's the first RRR big lock-groove records that's got specific contributions with the input from all the artists. The Lescalleet, KFW, and Sudden Infant sections are incredible.
Everyone should have a copy. The following vid of Aardvark cutting the master is great too:
i don't think "good" noise is any harder to create than any other sort of art really
same as with most creative endeavors, it's just something that takes years of dedicated work and a concrete set of developed and constantly developing ideas and purposes behind it
merzbow has been going at it since the late 70s but even with him it wasn't until the second half of the 80s that he started producing really accomplished material
Hey Brother! Did you listen to THE RITA/POWER MONSTER split yet? I finally listened to some of her material (posted a thread or two ago) and found it was pretty HNW. Haven't listened to that release but I wonder what she would bring or vice versa to the table. Their material is really similar. Granted THE RITA is more dense and conceptually driven.
I have every intention of listening to some of Pete Swanson's guitar oriented projects today as well. For those interested: http://thequietus.com/articles/10749-pete-swanson-interview-sarin-smoke
Listened to pic related again last night. It's uh..uh....just as amazing as everyone says it is. Been digging the late 90's/2000's laptop aesthetic lately (whatever that means, but you know what i mean)
Your noise is bad and you get disillusioned because you are comparing your art to other people's.
Have an idea, and then make a track, and then ask yourself if the track executed your idea well. If it did, then congratulations, you made a good song.
>Here's hoping I got the black clamshell
people have been saying that they mailed boomkat asking if they could get their desired edition of choice and got messages back saying no problem, so if you'd prefer getting the edition you want instead of leaving it up to chance you can try sending boomkat a message
INTERESTING MERZBOW INTERVIEW
MERZBOW: One of my goals is making lots of albums as Sun-Ra who made 180 records. But maybe I'll make more in the near future. So, my next goal is making 1000 albums.
MERZBOW: My background is early 70's progressive rock and Surrealism. I was looking for a way of realising theory of "Surrealism" as Andre Breton and George Bataille. For me, Surrealism was an alternative sense of a way of expression by mixing Anarchism, Alchemy, Schizo-Paranoia and fetishism.
My interest became more physical sound as "Velocity", "Sonic Pressure" "extasis of loudness" "metallic electric orgasm" etc.
MERZBOW: My message is abstract concept and vision as "Metallic Velocity" "Hypnotic Void" "White Big Nothingness" "Spiral Electric Trance". There are no dark or light. If sound have policy, it seems heavy and serious. It's my taste.

aye, from the booklet of a killer live split CD with pain jerk
mother savage noise productions
freak animal records
fusty cunt tapes
harsh head rituals
off the top of my head
a number of these artists and labels are also involved with grindcore, noisecore, black and death metal so there's that
https://neetspeak.bandcamp.com/album/lukepi-virtual-dreams-death-rebirth this is my favorite noise release of this year so far
this interview rules. i love masami so much, i wanna have lunch with him
Why do people viral in noise, god damn people are willing to listen to other noise. You dont have to act like you didnt make the shit. Treating this general like everyone is (more) retarded (than usual).
well you're kinda making an assumption there pal, lol. just because it's relatively unknown doesnt mean i made it, the guy asked for noise in 2016 and thats my personal favorite so far
Got some noise for you
I have 5 different releases (EPs and splits), here's a couple of my favourites:
I'd love some feedback, both EPs are just over 10 minutes. Thanks!
This one maybe, but it's hard to pick just one.
>arguably the most important and most influential noise artist of all time is bad
that's like saying you love avantgarde jazz but think cecil taylor is shit
uninformed as fuck
the guy has paved the road for so many paths in noise and has produced such a massive amount of varied work that saying he's shit just makes you look like you listened to a couple of his early 2000s albums and shrugged him off, without even realizing that he's already been producing material for decades at that point
he shaped and defined what noise music is and what it is understood to be more than 95% of other noise artists
barely anyone else was making noise when he started out
Right, I can agree with you there, but if you shape something to become greater, that doesn't necessarily make your shit the best. You know, the most enjoyable to listen to. I respect him, of course. But his actual music? Not too big a fan.
Hmm, hard to pick, I'll say Super compact disc for now. Pic related is my Masonna collection so far, still need to get Ejaculation Generater and some others.
fernow's pretty brilliant but he's also got some really stiff competition considering that he emerged at a time when a shitload of other brilliant noise artists started emerging all around the US and europe
when it comes to his label though, and how much he's done to break down a lot of noise-related boundaries regarding location, audiences, genre classifications etc., he might be the most important figure in north american noise from the early 2000s onward
the split with violent onsen geisha and mademoiselle anne sanglante...
eh, i'm kinda sympathetic to artists and labels when it comes to highly-priced releases as long as the design and content of those releases goes above and beyond just a plain couple of tapes in standard packaging and is actually something deserving of its cost(i'm thinking here of prurient's colonialist nature and misanthropy as a good example of a release which justifies its price, or the burning star core/prurient box-set, or to go with another hospital regular artist, yellow tears' the cult of yellow tears)
the problem with hospital's overpriced editions is that for a while there they really, really did not justify their price tag and just felt like fernow exploiting all the bandwagoners that came along after vatican shadow blew up, at the expense of hospital's dedicated core audience
the prices for hospital releases have returned to being pretty reasonable during the past couple of years though, so hopefully the days of "of the memories of friends"-type hustling are behind us
Maybe check out some industrial techno or some power noise.
What're yall listening to?
I forgot how mediocre Nicole 12 is. Which is a shame cause I like a lot of the stuff aspa puts out.
