The ninth installment in the series and it's exceptional: Masami Akita expresses a rich tableau of sound that, over the course of the album's three tracks, slowly begins to reveal itself as an autonomous realm, free from mental interference, beyond good and evil, negating human notions of time and space. Like the deepest state of transcendental meditation, only louder. Over the course of this series, Merzbow's noise has taken flight, not just through the signification of birds, but with the very breath of life. "Merzbow's 13 Japanese Birds is a 13 month series of releases inspired by Olivier Messiaen's Catalogue D'Oiseaux. Beginning in January 2009 one volume of 13 Japanese Birds will be released each month. The 13th and final volume will be released January 2010. Each volume will be a one time pressing of 1,000 copies. Cover art by Jenny Akita."
