(also known as ジャパノイズ Japan, Japanoizu)
Nature can turn a humble coal into a bright diamond, the musician humble sounds into a beautiful acoustic harmony.
How it sounds
Like looking on an analog radio station in Lesotho, South Africa for your favorite show.
From a station that is north of the Arctic Circle, which broadcasts only in the middle (AM) and in between you can find other stations …
With traditional music of their countries !!!
It’s basically a noise that fights to become music.
Why listen to it
Why do you want to get a migraine to avoid choreography with your spouse?
In fact, for its sound experiments, which you can use when making a pioneering sound band.
Because we heard Yoko Ono sing and she has haunted us. Because there is a lot of noise between the (little) music
Where we meet it
When did it start
The late 70s.
Although the landmark date is May 8, 1960.
When 6 young Japanese musicians formed Group Ongaku.
The youngsters recorded along with traditional musical instruments, a vacuum cleaner, dishes, an old radio and various other noisy objects.
And as if that were not enough, they achieved the result of the recording for even greater distortion.
Who are the pioneers
Merzbow, who took as a model Lou Reed’s 5th album “Metal Machine Music” and went even further in…
Edge, it’s already extreme sound, but also create a new genre.
You have to listen
Hijokaidan, Boredoms, C.C.C.C., Incapacitants, KK Null, Yamazaki Maso (Masonna), Solmania, The Gerogerigegege, Mayuko Hino, Hanatarash.
Days of glory
It has its audience outside the country of the rising sun, mainly lovers of musical experimentation
The goal of music is a harmony of sounds, not their disharmony. Exaggeration does not necessarily lead to musical avant-garde.
What is it confused with
With an old vacuum cleaner or demonized amplifier. With noise rock, but without rock. Maybe with Power noise and Onkyokei
How do you describe it to an irrelevant person
Something like a vacuum cleaner with a blender Sunday morning at 8 after a frantic night, which was the cause of a protracted hangover.
