“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.
