Kazuhiro Ohtsuka's Trial Run first outing is classic Japanese noise
Decidedly lo-fi and noisy work released in 1984 - this tape has cut ups, field recordings and layered noise works. But five stars means the qualities of the goings on are assured to be compelling. The crazed tonal spectrum, minimal machine treatments and monolithic approaches are all aligned between tedium and annoyance just right. A Cassette Culture classic this work that will deliver the goods at all volumes.
Discogs only lists this tape but at least five or more were produced out of Tokyo in the 1980s.
