>>62000119 If someone is going to make a thread deriding people for being plebs because they allegedly don't like something, they better post some above average shit not something everyone and their mother has heard when getting into the genre.
The worst meme on /mu/ is that noise is good but this album isn't. Noise IS good and this album is a good noise album. People listen to Jason Crumer once and say "wow the only good noise is western noise" "japanoise sucks" "merzbow is just noise for the sake of noise"
>>62000304 >no understanding of how important merzbow
ok so Ive given him a listen previously, I can appreciate noise music as a tool for meditation and as something to cleanse the pallet. How is it important? was he the first? >actual question and just curious about the genre as a whole
>>62000256 no, it's popular because of its gimmicky album cover and the fact that it came out on a popular metal label this board has a thing for gimmicky album covers it's a mediocre album by 90s merzbow standards and a shit one by 80s merzbow standards
>>62000586 It's also an album many people know due to its popularity, and many people know of it and recognize the cover who haven't even listened to it, so it makes it a useful image to use to start a plebbaiting thread like this one, rather than some omg so obscure xD noise album that nobody will recognize so won't open the thread.
>>62000610 you've been tricked by the its popular therefore it's bad crowd I'm afraid. it's literally exemplary merzbow and it sucks becuase merzbow sucks but if you like Merzbow then you wouldn't shit on this album for any other reason than that it's popular, period.
follow up question, is there really anything else in the genre to be explored? I feel the relationship to shoegaze (e.g. Jefre Cantu-Ledesma - A Year With 13 Moons), this exploration of soundscapes, but what could be left? I love the sounds created by what would come off as "broken" instruments or byproducts or using musical advancements incorrectly, but if Merzbow has been exploring that since the 90's, how can it continue now as just noise "music". Does it seem like it's over?
like vaporwave to me is dead, it was a venture worth exploring, but to keep creating vaporwave seems like it's missing the point of making something new. You can take influence from the point in time, but to try to recreate it seems redundant.
>>62001078 Kazuma Kubota - Utsuroi was an album which came out last yr. It was unlike anything I have heard. The thing about noise is that there are an infinite number of possible waveforms, so in theory the genre will never die.
>The thing about noise is that there are an infinite number of possible waveforms, so in theory the genre will never die. I get that, but like from what I have listened to (read: merzbow), there's not much structure to his music. That's kind of where, for me, it's a pallet cleanser. I couldn't really listen to it in much other environments other than at home, bored with my own music collection.
>>62000878 Why are you doing this to yourself? masochist? >>62001184 I've only got a couple tracks of his music on various early noise/electronic/dada compilations, would you me to upload either comp? I've got A Young Person's Guide to the Avant-Garde and Futurism & Dada Reviewed
