“There's no need to argue. Merzbow stands as the most influential figure in noise music.” - François Couture, AllMusic


Merzbow is a Japanese noise project started in 1979 by Masami Akita. Merzbow is best known for a style of harsh, confrontational noise as exemplified on the 1996 release Pulse Demon. For over thirty years, Merzbow has been the biggest and most recognizable figure on the international noise scene. He has released over 400 recordings, and has collaborated with various artists including Sunn O))), Full of Hell, Boris, xiuxiu, Keiji Haino, etc.

The name Merzbow comes from the German Dada artist Kurt Schwitters' artwork Merzbau. The name was chosen to reflect Akita's Dada influence and junk art aesthetic. In addition to this, Akita has cited a wide range of musical influences from progressive rock, heavy metal, free jazz, and early electronic music to non-musical influences like Dadaism, surrealism and fetish culture. Since the early 2000s, he has been inspired by animal rights and environmentalism, and began to follow a vegan, straight-edge[1] lifestyle.

As well as being a prolific musician, he has been a writer and editor for several books and magazines in Japan, and has written several books of his own. He has written about a variety of subjects, mostly about music, modern art, and underground culture. Other art forms Akita has been interested in include painting, photography, film-making and Butoh dance.


[1] Straight-edge (often abbreviated as sXe or signified by XXX or X) is a subculture emerged amid the early-1980s hardcore punk scene that strive for clean-living and positivity.
