Deluxe vinyl version of Keio Line (the same content also to be issued on double CD by Cuneiform); the complete recording of an incredible collaboration that sweeps across the generations of electronic music. Richard Pinhas is internationally recognized as one of France's major experimental musicians: The "father" of French electronic music. He was the founder of seminal space-rock band Heldon, a band whose violent fusion of electronics and guitar in the '70s rivalled the German electronic school. As a guitar player, he has been compared to Robert Fripp. Cited as an influence by many electronic musicians, Pinhas has helped to define the space music genre. Since founding Heldon in 1974, Pinhas has released over 15 albums, had involvement in dozens more and shaped the way we listen to music today. Masami Akita aka Merzbow is the forerunner of Japanese electronic music, and for the last 20 years plus, has been at the top of his game ploughing more and more extreme sonic territories. This release, recorded in Tokyo in October 2007, will surprise a lot of people in it's sheer beauty. This is a collaboration that works in the true sense of the word, with each artist complimenting the other over six long, sprawling tracks, each occupying the whole of each side. The set comes housed in a gloss-laminated sleeve and is limited to just 1000 copies.
