Otomo Yoshihide - Sound Factory (1997)



"Perhaps the most extreme release by the giant of Japan improv so far. A non-stop noise attack on aural comfort, consisting of two long pieces for turntables, mixer and hard-disk recorder. Amazing cut-up symphonies of parts and particles of hundreds of impossible to recognize sound sources: from cartoon music to car alarms to straight ear-splitting noise. Yet, despite all its violence, there is a soothing quality to this recording, as if the purpose of this noise aggression is to take us to the levels of pristine contemplation characteristic of Otomo's later releases."




Recorded in April 1997 in Tokyo.
Part 3 of the Memory Disorder series.
