“Merzbow是当今噪音音乐界无可争议的最具影响力的计划。”
——François Couture,AllMusic网站 

Merzbow是由秋田昌美于1979年创立的噪音计划。 Merzbow以创作刺耳、咄咄逼人的高能量噪音而闻名,代表作是1996年发布的专辑《Pulse Demon》。三十多年来,Merzbow一直是国际噪音界最知名的人物,他发行过400余张唱片,并与各类艺术家合作,其中包括Sunn O)))、Full of Hell、Boris、xiuxiu和灰野敬二等。

Merzbow之名源自德国达达艺术家Kurt Schwitters的作品《Merzbau》,由此也反映出秋田昌美有受到达达主义和垃圾美学的影响。此外,他还广泛吸收包括前卫摇滚、重金属、自由爵士和早期电子乐在内的各种音乐风格,也深受超现实主义等非音乐文化的影响。自21世纪初以来,他受到动物权益和环境保护主义的启发,开始成为纯素主义者,崇尚直刃族[1]的生活方式。

除了是一位高产的音乐家,秋田昌美还是一名作家及图书编辑,在日本发行过一些书和杂志。他的写作跨越多种主题,主要关于音乐、当代艺术和地下文化,而他涉猎的艺术形式还包括绘画、摄影、电影制作和舞踏等。

[1]直刃族(Straight-Edge):常被简写成“sXe”、“X”或“XXX”,一种源于80年代美国硬核朋克的亚文化,主张“降低欲望,回归简单生活”。

“There's no need to argue. Merzbow stands as the most influential figure in noise music.”
- François Couture, AllMusic 

Merzbow is a Japanese noise project started in 1979 by Masami Akita. Merzbow is best known for a style of harsh, confrontational noise as exemplified on the 1996 release Pulse Demon. For over thirty years, Merzbow has been the biggest and most recognizable figure on the international noise scene. He has released over 400 recordings, and has collaborated with various artists including Sunn O))), Full of Hell, Boris, xiuxiu, Keiji Haino, etc. 

The name Merzbow comes from the German Dada artist Kurt Schwitters' artwork Merzbau. The name was chosen to reflect Akita's Dada influence and junk art aesthetic. In addition to this, Akita has cited a wide range of musical influences from progressive rock, heavy metal, free jazz, and early electronic music to non-musical influences like Dadaism, surrealism and fetish culture. Since the early 2000s, he has been inspired by animal rights and environmentalism, and began to follow a vegan, straight-edge[1] lifestyle. 

As well as being a prolific musician, he has been a writer and editor for several books and magazines in Japan, and has written several books of his own. He has written about a variety of subjects, mostly about music, modern art, and underground culture. Other art forms Akita has been interested in include painting, photography, film-making and Butoh dance. 

[1] Straight-edge (often abbreviated as sXe or signified by XXX or X) is a subculture emerged amid the early-1980s hardcore punk scene that strive for clean-living and positivity.
