"Sound work is an accumulation of pleasure, and the desire for pleasure is endless. Maybe the motivation of MERZBOW is to build a Pleasuredome of Noise - to increase power and difference"
A live-streaming of the first event featuring the spectacular discographic project by the japanese Noise artist Masami Akita alias Merzbow: an encyclopedia of noise entitled "Merzbox", containing 50 CDs that, by using low-tech equipment in an anti-conventional way, create a flooding of the senses, negating the opportunities for sound to be distinguished. This collection of manifestations by the "King of Noise" dating from the years 1979-97 was played at the Kunsthalle exhibition "Yayoi Kusama" (www.kunsthallewien.at) in full length in a continuous listening session of approximately 60 hours, introduced and ended with a one-hour live act by Masami Akita.
