Description :Even the most experienced ear will not come outof PiaNoise unscathed. Consecrating the meetingof two consummate artists, this release confrontstheir universe like a massive head-on shock in theeye of a sound storm by which we sometimes feeltotally drowned.

Masami Akita (Merzbow) has been surveying the territoriesof noise music for more than forty years, directing all sorts of instrumentaria analogical or digital, instrument orsoftware-based. For this record he relied on his favoritecombination, a mix of various effects pedals and noise generators.

Nicolas Horvath is a pianist of exceptional sensibility. More thanwell-versed in the classical Repertoire, he also is fundamentally curious and multifaceted, as evidenced by his rescuing worksand composers from oblivion, championing them on stage and patiently, carefully recording them.

Nicolas Horvath also improvises and composes electronic music. Sincethe early 2000s, he has been active in the experimental and underground scene under many different names, especially Dapnom. In 2020he released a dark ambient album under his real name, in collaborationwith Lustmord : The Fall (Sub Rosa - SR / SRV 502), a duet for pianoand electronic music that rewrites/deconstructs one of the first minimalworks in history, Dennis Johnson's November.

A collaboration with Merzbow had already been considered some fifteenyears ago. In the midst of forced isolation, it was all the more temptingto meet symbolically, following the ways of the World Wide Web. PiaNoiseis actually a project born from the health crisis and lockdowns, carriedout from different homes in days of anguish and uncertainty. Both artiststhus projected their worries about the ongoing crisis and today's ecological disaster.

The music produced took on the shape of a constant struggle between,on the one hand, Merzbow's continuous release of energy, saturatedsounds, masses, stridencies, powerful granulations, surrounding textures, chaotic rhythms and organised chaos, and on the other, Nicolas Horvath's improvisations, sometimes lyrical, sometimes harmonic, always deeplyrooted in his classical culture and personal pantheon (Scriabine, Satie, StockhausenŠ), like a memory of a golden age forever lost, but abidingly anchored in our mind, a touch of dream to keep us alive by all means.No listener will escape it as they lend a careful and sometimes all butdesperate ear to the raging soundwaves. The two continuous musical linesoften collide and even seem to ignore each other every so often, but theyalso meet and complete each other, helping the compositions breath. This confrontation generates a great opulence of sound calling for an extremely active form of listening.In the midst of a global wreck and a period of upheaval, two artists stillmanage to communicate from one digital raft to another, and render thepoetry of a moment.
