Three recent interviews:
Les Femmes Folles: This one is about why I do what I do, and a bit of politics and feminism.
Power Moves Label: This one is about music, sound, and noise, and a bit about visual music also.
Notodo: This one is in Spanish, about my work in general.
I’ve released a new noise album entitled The Night Has a Thousand Noises. If you like it, you can buy The Night Has a Thousand Noises here. The quality is much better if you download it.
If you like the cover, generated from the track, you can buy prints and other stuff at Society6 or Redbubble.
Blade Runner (1982)
All those cyberpunk moments where I live. Just warming you up. Walking alone. Walking alone when all of a sudden you look down. Doesn’t make any difference. Maybe you wanna be by yourself. I understand what you mean.
You reach down. It’s a test designed to provoke an emotional response. A new life awaits you in the Off-world. Custom-tailored, genetically engineered humanoid. Climb and maintain. Over the landing threshold.
Sit down, cyberpunk.
Walking the streets. Stop right where you are. Reaction time is a factor where I live. Three nights ago they tried to break through an electrical field crawling towards you on intergalactic runs. Incept date: 2016. Optimum self-sufficiency.
A basic pleasure model in the outer colonies to copy human beings. Fail-safe device. Go put the machine on it. Fluctuation of the pupil. Involuntary dilation of the iris. Just relax.
Plus the killing cyberpunk.
I’d take him to the television. I’d kill it. He likes it so much he hangs it on your bedroom wall. A banquet is in progress. Commerce is our goal here. An experiment, nothing more. A strange obsession.
“This film’s perceptual manipulations make productive use of after-images and other visual effects. The jury was impressed by the positive expanded cinema challenge that this film presented to its audience.” —First Prize: RGB Colour Model
What a great news! What a great honour!
“The Merzbow noise is abstract, minimal, deprived of mimetic content. Its effect is immediate, an overload of the nervous system, not being able to sort out the information into categories of relevant and irrelevant – hence the normal reaction of fear and discomfort when confronted with Merzbow noise. ‘Noise is the unconsciousness of music’, Merzbow states, in the same way as his other main interest, pornography and bondage, is the unconsciousness of sex.”
