This live recording by French guitarist Pinhas and Japanese electronic musician Merzbow comprises dense soundscapes spanning semi-melodic material reminiscent of ’70s-era Fripp and Eno to considerably noisier, industrial-grade mayhem. Pinhas’ fuzzed-out looping and spacy soloing meshes perfectly with Merzbow’s synthetic onslaughts, resulting in compelling—though frequently disturbing—sonic excursions. A bonus concert DVD enhances the experience. Cuneiform.
