Guitar, Electronics – Masayuki Takayanagi

Recorded in Shizuoka on December 16, 1990.

This is definitely an album for noiseheads only. While being one of the last recordings of Takayanagi, it's clearly not one of the most exciting to listen to, even in the late era of his electronic works. If you enjoy any of Merzbow's infinite waves of harsh noise, check it out; if you prefer Aube's in-depth exploration, you'll find some interesting peaks. But in all cases, you might chose to pick the other "Action Direct" release, which I found of a much greater level of sonic experience.
