"All hail the trans-Pacific noise continuum! Each 21-minute side of this album is dedicated to an artist from Japanand California, respectively. While certainly harsh, the music of K2aka Kimihide Kusafuka and Allan Zane offers a great richness of detail, which makes
it less of a harsh noise wall than a noise mosaic. Making perfect sense of the Split LP idea, each artist offers a different take on what it means to make noise: while Japanoise guru K2maxes out anything there is on his electronic equipment, Allan Zane takes to his power tools.

Mirror for Colored Sin by K2credits junk electronics as sound sources next to the legendary TR-808 drum machine. There is a wonderful irony in the fact that the famed 1980s device, adored by pop and techno
producers the world over, is used here for something so decidedly un-pop and undanceable. After all, isnt noise about destroying the official signal and creating something from the remains? Aptly, Kimihide Kusafuka credits himself as decomposer of the piece he performs on this record.

Allan Zane dedicates his piece Zerstrte Musik to two of the most iconic noise practitioners outside of Japan: GX Jupitter-Larsen of The Haters and Richard Rupenus of The New Blockaders. Using metal objects, power tools, effects devices, and a good amount of overdrive on the recording, Allan Zane creates a piece that does not sound simply like
destroyed music as the title claims, but quite psychedelic in its textural, ambient quality. We would not go as far as calling it acid noise, but Zanes years of experience in creating spaced-out audio collages with LSD (that is, his recording project Le Scrambled
Debutante, also released on attenuation circuit) sure benefitted this track a great deal.
