様々な層から支持を集めるノイズ・アーティストKazuma Kubotaと、近代中国ノイズの最重要人物メイ・ジヨン、日中現代ノイズ・アーティストの邂逅により実現した2016年スタジオ・セッションの記録音源である。両者のソロワークから感じられる共時性をタイト&ハードなノイズとして融合させた高純度コラボレーション。

Kazuma Kubota the noise artist who is gathering support from various strata, and Mei Zhiyong the most important figure of modern Chinese noise music. This piece of work is the live recording of a 2016 studio session that came about from a chance encounter of the Japanese and Chinese modern noise artists. It is a collaboration of a high purity that fuses together the synchronicity, which can be felt from the two artists’ solo work, as a tight and hard noise. I think this is an important piece that presents the current Japanese and Chinese noise. limited edition of 300 copies.
