These 17 seconds alone should be enough for Merzbow to throw his entire discography in the garbage out of shame. Needless to say, this is an excellent track. Masami Akita has been trying to do what Wayne does here for years. Wayne proofs that you DON'T NEED an army of macbooks, amplifiers, effect pedals and magnetic tape in order to create a unique sound. He just presents to ingredients: one guitar and an ocean of reverb.
I'm too unfamiliar with Wayne's material to be sure whatever this is a free improvisational piece or a more structured work. One thing's for sure: this track left me eager to hear more. All I can do now is wait.
