Keiji Haino collaborates with Reinhold Friedl's Zeitkratzer for their 2nd release, with Haino concentrating solely on his voice without electronic manipulation, in a live recording at Jahrehunderthalle in Bochum, Germany for a frightful mix of ferocious chamber music.

Zeitkratzer + Keiji Haino

Zeitkratzer / Keiji Haino: Zeitkratzer + Keiji Haino (Zeitkratzer)

Label: Zeitkratzer    
Released in: Germany    

"On his second release with Zeitkratzer, Keiji Haino concentrates solely on his voice. No electronics are used except for amplification. Nevertheless, this live recording is even more radical than the first one. Radical is the concentration on the very limited but frenetic musical material, worked out in detail, which is rarely heard in the noise context -- enabling Keiji Haino to sit on it, fly over, to merge or just to oppose.

Zeitkratzer's amplified instruments, played with extended techniques as developed by the group and its outstanding musicians over more than a decade and Haino's incredible richness in voice timbres and noises complement each other perfectly. It's one of the closest and most natural cooperations Zeitkratzer ever had. Wild and beautiful. Shouting, scratching, screaming, piping, chattering, crying, rumbling, oscillating, roaring, clashing, juttering, tinkling, singing, ... and at the end, it's hilarious, powerful music, pure noise and pure melody."-Zietkratzer Producations

Also available on vinyl LP.
