• MERZBOW / BERSERK - A HISTORY OF SELF LP
A hash/experimental noise project involving MERZBOW on Side A, a wall of one side sound spreading from a moderate and discreet wave. The roar of noise is still clearly heard at that time, while on Side B (tracks 2 to 4) is recorded by Taiwanese noise artist Berserk (Jared Xu). Create samples from movie speech and news, and destroy speech material by hardware no-input and effector board processing. Every noise changes between the listener's ears, jumps and converts morphologically.
Berserk, also called Jared Xu, is now a 22-year-old harsh noise artist from Taiwan. His recordings include some clips from films and broadcasting programs and of course raw sound with powerful energy. Offensive sound line and wall are running through your left and right ears. You can see a guy with long hair shaking when he does live performance. He also released a solo debut, High School Sound Terrorist in 2016.
