Keiji Haino ( 灰野敬二 ) - Ama No Gawa [Milky Way] (1993)

| Avant-Garde | Noise | Experimental |

Milky Way is a proper title for this Live recording, which feels like the sounds from the universe origins (Haino's other albums). A 47min of Keiji all by himself evoking a dense, swirling stew of churning, unspecified noise electronics and distant, wailing horns. This is how the galaxy would sound after being consumed by a giant and ferocious super nova. A live from 1973, this is one of the earlier noise records, though being completely ahead of its time, and ours. This is a song from the beginning and the end of the universe, interweaving time and all the dimensions into a primal, desolate, and perfect atmosphere.

Drifiting into the beyond, chanting the screams of the dark matter, filling the whole space around him and devouring the fading stars like a voracious massive black hole. This beautiful song pierce your mind and slowly consume you subconscious, pushing you into this utterly black and lonely afterworld travel.
