Merzbow Mixtape and Magazine Set
Masami Akita is one of the most influential noise artists of our time. Known as Merzbow, Akita has developed a recognisable sound with his harsh, confrontational and abrasive sonic emittance.
Lawrence English is a curator of sound, vision and thought. As the founder of Room40
, English has released countless records and has worked alongside some of the most notable and adorned sound pioneers of our time – in turn becoming one himself.
To coincide with Akita and English’s involvement in issue 02, English compiled a Merzbow Mixtape of hidden gems from Merzbow’s expansive archive. Enjoy yours – purchase at the link below.
