Bloody Imagination (Akiyama / Miyamoto / Kawasaki / Ito)
Satanic Abandoned Rock & Roll Society
Label: Mikroton Recordings
Released in: Russia
Resonator guitarist Tetuzi Akiyama produced this release in 2004, bringing together Naoaki Miyamoto on mid-high frequency electric guitar, Utah Kawasaki on mid-low frequency analog synth, and Atsuhiro Ito on low frequency optron. Over an extended 51 minute piece the four improvisers work an extended frequency range in a dark rumbling environment with rich overtones and dynamic, penetrating tones. It's a massive work of veiled and insinuated sound, dark and mesmerizing.
"The performance by these four people, who each have a different time axis from each other, and from those in established free music or drone, will derail the biological clock of the listeners and provide a sound experience across the entire audible range."-Mikroton
