一期一会 (Once in a lifetime) is a fragmented and anachronistic double album featuring Romania’s Bosses Hang (aka Raul Starcz) improvising on the original works of noise protagonists: Government Alpha & Astro (Hiroshi Hasegawa & Rohco) (Tokyo, Japan), Torturing Nurse (Shanghai, China) & Vomir (Paris, France).
Other guests like Marko Neuman, Déhà (Musical Excrements) and Junko (Hijokaidan) are also featured in this free-forming transformation of sound that range from drone to industrial noise to free jazz and doom.
The range of sounds transcend into unexpected directions and territories, all serving as the base of this album.
There is a rhizomatic meeting between the different artists with different styles and different subjectivities being captured here.
Due to it’s instinctive and improvisational nature, the tracks will never exist in the same form ever again.
“However, the author is dead and the duty is passed to the listener, as improvisation is forever open-ended.” (一期一会 – Once In A Lifetime)
