Along with Merzbow and Hijokaidan, Masonna is one of the best (known) Japanese noise projects. A psychedelic touch, cascades of electronic noise and vocal belching mixed together constitute the ingredients of Mademoiselle Anne Sanglante Ou Notre Nymphomanie Auréolé, the double-barrelled named for Masonna .
Yamazaki “Maso” Takushi created Masonna in 1987 and he started recordings for his own legendary label Coquette . His plentiful productions were presented in a ultra limited edition, sometime totally confidential (one sole copy), on cassette , seven inch acetate disc produced by a portable cutting machine and Minidisc. They contributed to create a mythology based above all on the astonishing intensity with which “Maso” devastates and reprocesses the vocal cords, in a true total electronic song. In his impressive live performances he created and electrically overcharged universe, punctuating the electric and vocal sonorous power with some quite moments and brief interruptions, conferring a very particular dynamic to his pieces.
Studio recordings are making full use skillfully editing how to edit cut-up, in which elaborate lump-sum making has been performed, the psychedelic taste for each track of time is taken into consideration, Yamazaki extends musical width.
Urashima is proud to present an amazing Coquette production, released on Beast 666 Tapes in 1989 and on Vanilla Records in 1990, on double format Lp and Tape (same tracking list on each format).
