Re: Stupid Looping Questions... and $0.02
Merzbow is way cool. His music for Bondage is splendid, tedious, profane (
raw and nothing else other than noise approach ). I typically shy away
stuff "avant noisey stuff " cause it usually sounds the same but something
happening in a big way with Merzbow.
Anyone have any clue as to what types of equip. Merzbow used ?? Like is
everything from a sampler or is he actually playing that industrial
clangs and clings & is there a technique to his stuff ???
I cant find any Merzbow stuff in record shops either. Good stuff tho.
