Kenji Siratori - Bonnou Machine [Kovorox Sound - 2008]

Bonnou Machine is a just over 40 minute billow nuclear storm of an industrial noise, jagged electro discharged and metallic sci-fi dread spat from the fevered mind of cut-up cyber punk writer and noise artist Kenji Siratori.

It's Split into two tracks Bonnou Machine 1 and 2 with the first track clocking in just over 11 minutes, and the second a mind melting 30 minutes. Part one is slightly more musical of the two, though still fairly noisy with throbbing sinister bass tone, weeping and circle bent harmonics, deranged Morse code overloads and low down every now and then  what sounds like ranted robot voices. Part two starts off with a bellowed and growled metallic dense sound fog that brings to mind the roaring primeval calls of a group of machine/ organic half breeds that are getting closer and closer to the part of the decaying tunnel you hide in. As the track progresses there’s not any huge structural or textural changers, though new tones are added and taken away. At about the 20 minutes mark the track becomes like an every pouring skin liquefying shower of  burning sound.

Two searing tracks that I certainly enjoyed more than pervious work I’d heard by Siratori as it mangers to capture the feeling nicely  of a burning technology world.  Though I don’t know how often I’d return to this in the future ,as it doesn’t seem you offer up many new tricks or textures after a few plays.
