The boxset contains the following 4 albums, which will be also available separately in very limited editions in autumn:

artefAKT01 Merzbow – Yantra Material Action LP
Originally named „Merz“, this album should have been Merzbow’s first vinyl release, but never came out on vinyl. So actually “Yantra Material Action” is „Material Action 1“, recorded in 1981 – with insert

artefAKT02 Kiyoshi Mizutani – The Same Thing Always Makes Her Laugh LP
Brilliant Experimental album by the Merzbow co-founder, recorded in 1989 – with insert

artefAKT03 K2 – Herzmuskelgewebe LP (layout not fixed yet)
Early Japan TechNoise at its best, recorded in 1984

artefAKT04 Nord – 1st LP
One of the most rare and classic Experimental Japanoise albums, recorded in 1981

The artefAKT series is a new and very limited vinyl series of superrare and partially unreleased early (mainly 80ies) Experimental and Noise Music recordings, starting with a series of Japanese artists now.

We are already preparing several more albums and the box will have place for 20 albums, 16 vinyl more in this series to be upcoming.

Only the buyers of the box can later purchase the upcoming albums also in coloured vinyl.
The vinyls in the box are coloured vinyl, while the regular LPs will be black vinyl, but also very limited.

We do only as many boxes as preorders come in until end of july!

ATTENTION: If you’d like to get an additional free download from the albums, just let us know when the box is out.
