The prolific Japanese artist collaborates with Eiko Ishibashi on the new LP, out in March.
Akita, the Japanese noise legend, has over 400 releases under his belt. Kouen Kyoudai marks his return to Peter Rehberg's label, following Mer Mar, a 2012 collaboration with Lasse Marhaug, and One Bird Two Bird, a 2011 effort featuring Mats Gustafsson and Jim O'Rourke. O'Rourke, another restless experimentalist living in Japan, is on production duty for this new one, which features Drag City artist Eiko Ishibashi on piano, drums and synthesizer. Check out RA's recent feature on Merzbow here.

Editions Mego will release Kouen Kyoudai on March 18th, 2016.
