Dokuro is proud to present the collaboration between two veterans and masters of the Japanese noise scene: K2 (Kimihide Kusafuka) and FK (Fumio Kosakai of INCAPACITANTS).
The first track "Showroom Mummies" of K2 is an high-energy piece full of omnidirectional sonic explosions and distorted whirpools.
Mr. Kusafuka's skill is that he knows how to push the limits a little further in the threshold of endurance.
oFumio Kosakai surprises by proposing instead an exercise in musique concrète that is most likely the quieter work of all his repertoire. Field recordings of trains sounds are assembled into a piece constantly balanced between silence and storytelling. The total absence of crowd's presence in the soundscape places the listener as the only witness to this race in the Yokohama Express.
The CD ends with "Radioactivit-Art" a four-handed tune, where the two noise-masters give the best of themselves, the sound writhes in perpetuum, in a centrifugal thrust that reaches the maximum noise.
The rule is simple but effective: the more intense is the sonic overpowering the higher is the ecstatic rapture.
There is not better to start out the 2015.
