MERZBOW BIRD BOX & SUBSCRIPTION PRE-ORDERS

The Merzbow "13 Japanese Birds" 13 CD subscription & bamboo box set is now available for pre-order

ABOUT THE CD SERIES:
Merzbow's 13 Japanese Birds is a 13 month/13 CD set that begins January 2009 and ends February 2010. These are pressed in a limited edition of 1000 and once they are sold out they will not be repressed. This series was inspired by Olivier Messaien's Catalogue D'Oiseaux.

ABOUT THE BAMBOO BOX:
These are hand crafted, numbered, screen printed and constructed of organic imported Moso bamboo. The box holds all 13 cds and they are painstakingly crafted, one a day, by a Massachusetts craftsman. When your box is ready we will ship it to you along with your CD for the month. Boxes will ship in the chronological order in which they are purchased. We expect to ship about 30 a month.

ABOUT THE PAINTINGS:

With the purchase of a bamboo box you have the option of including an original acrylic on bamboo painting by Masami Akita (Merzbow). His work can be seen on the cover of the LP released via Important titled Minazo 2. It's a little known fact that Masami Akita studied painting at Tamagawa University in Japan and has continued to produce paintings. These paintings are not available without the purchase of a bamboo box.

** due to the time required to produce each box (& the future collector value of the boxes ) we reserve the right, if neccessary, to limit the number of boxes per order **
