Keiji Haino/Oren Ambarchi/Jim O'Rourke - 'Imikuzushi'

Listening to the 24-minute long track "invited in practically drawn in by something facing the exit of this hiding place who is it? that went in…" on 'Imikuzushi', the new Keiji Haino/Oren Ambarchi/Jim O'Rourke album on Black Truffle Records. I wondered what 'imikuzushi' meant in Japanese. I thought it meant something like 'erase all colours till there's nothing left'. That would fit the gray, colourless sleeve of this album exactly. I checked with my Japanese FB friend Yukihiro Takahashi.It actually means 'meaning' (imi) 'destroyed' (kuzushi). What an apt title. The album sounds exactly like the title suggests. Like nothing else. Like poetry. Wonderfully addictive! Get it before you die! Then die!
