descriptions, reviews, &c.

"What may be most remarkable about Victo is the matching of stylistic diversity with common quality. French guitarist Richard Pinhas, Japanese electronics specialist Merzbow and the American trio Wolf Eyes combined in a triumph of noise, a work of mass and grandeur that could suggest a Bruckner symphony at the other end of the industrial revolution." Stuart Broomer, MusicWorks

"Whether pulsing out cosmic bubble tones of a very spacey nature or erupting with cacophonous shards of bulldozer destruction, everyone looked placid and content (for the most part), just happy to be there, wreaking aural havoc in good company."-Byron Coley, The Wire

"In another compelling set, Richard Pinhas, Merzbow and Wolf Eyes gave a beautifully detailed and precise performance that was symphonic in scale, electronic chattering stabs of processed sax, guitar and vocals undulating and building to a brutal and, at times, painful intensity, foreboding dark tension of fluttering engine throbs, shrieking feedback and screeching sheet metal tearing at the edge of the abyss - a highlight of the weekend."-Mike Chamberlain, The NY City Jazz Record

Artist Biographies:

"Composer, guitarist and electronics innovator Richard Pinhas is recognized as one of France's major experimental musicians. A pivotal figure in the international development of electronic rock music, Pinhas' stature in France is analogous to Tangerine Dream's in Germany: the father figure of an entire musical movement. The pioneering, aggressive music produced by his band Heldon during the 1970s, fusing electronics, guitar and rock, heralded the industrial and techno to come and remains today vital and unsurpassed. The 'Father' of electronic music in France is also recognized as a world-class guitarist whose "diabolical guitar work" (Progression) earns comparisons with Robert Fripp.

Pinhas received a degree in guitar at 17, and a PhD in philosophy from the Sorbonne, studying under philosopher Gilles Deleuze and writing on time and science fiction. He taught philosophy before abandoning an academic career for Heldon, his 3rd band, whose name derived from Normal Spinrad's writing. Over the course of his subsequent musical career, Pinhas' ongoing philosophical studies and interest in science fiction have fired, infused, and continually renewed his music."

"Masami Akita, born December 19, 1956, better known by his stage name Merzbow, is a Japanese noise musician. Since 1980, he has released over 400 recordings. The name Merzbow comes from the German dada artist Kurt Schwitters' artwork Merzbau (German pronunciation: [ˈmɛʁtsˌbaʊ̯]), in which Schwitters transformed the interior of his house using found objects. 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 has become a vegan.

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. His more renowned works were on the topics of BDSM and Japanese bondage. Other art forms Akita has been interested in include painting, photography, filmmaking, and Butoh dance. In 2000, Extreme Records released the 50 CD box set known as the Merzbox. Akita's work has been the subject of several remix albums and at least one tribute album. This, among other achievements, has helped Merzbow to be regarded by some as the "most important artist in noise"."
