This albums offers pure analog noise with varied timbre and string, keyboard, percussion.  Inspired by DADA & Kurt Scwitters from which he took "MERZ" for his project name, this might be considered a New-DADA experiment....
These early tracks are not the overwhelming electronic noise that dominate their late 1980s & 1990s work but contain all the analog bluster their work employs with electronics, strings, keyboards, pipe (?), loops and snare drum. 
All sounds remasterd by Masami Akita in 2021 for CD re-edition
