Renowned noise master Merzbow (Masami Akita) and fellow titans of genre defying heavy music Boris perform live together in Australia for the first time.

Collaborators since 1997, they’ve had profound impacts on each other’s work. Boris and Merzbow work together to create a wall of noise, meshing Boris’ signature heavier sound with Merzbow’s intensely visceral noise music.

These influential “dual institutions of loudness” (Pitchfork) come together for a night dedicated to the darker side of experimental heavy music and Japanese noise.

Opening the show is local artist CORIN, who assembles converging styles ranging from grime and trance to baroque-laden ambience. Drawing on a background in classical piano, CORIN’s live AV performance encompasses technical configurations executed with equal parts emotion and cold precision, and features visuals by video artist Tristan Jalleh.

Boris with Merzbow is part of the SUBSONIC program curated for Asia TOPA by The SUBSTATION.
