Urashima present a reissue of Mortal Vision's Nacht Musik, originally released on cassette in 1982. Japanese noise legend Hiroshi Hasegawa started his improvisations with his voice and percussion in early '80s, and in 1989 he formed the amazing noise band and performance art act C.C.C.C. (Cosmic Coincidence Control Center) with the concept of improvisational mass-noise, with a very loud sound. He also started his solo unit Mortal Vision with guitar in 1990 and started Astro in 1993 with analog synthesizer. Since then, he's continued to spend decades exploring noise's manifestations and new ways of enrapturing audiences with sound. Nacht Musik is the only work, along with a seven inch on Membrum Debile Propaganda, of his solo project Mortal Vision. Originally released on well-known tape label G.R.O.S.S. in 1992, the work presents two long tracks where the sounds of distorted guitar are shackled to multi-phasic curtains of blinding light, distorting, firing, and moving in great explosive arcs as they pan from speaker to speaker. Played at any kind of significant volume level, this stuff can peel the paint from the walls. 140 gram black vinyl with black label and black inner sleeve; Comes in a deluxe silver silkscreen on black cardboard sleeve; Includes insert; Edition of 99 (hand-numbered).
