Review Summary: Lunacy.
One Hundred Aspects of the Moon is a series of works by painter Yo***oshi. This album is 40 minutes of random noises.
Yo***oshi is an artist. Ikue Mori is a woman messing around with a computer.
What people will accept as music and take seriously these days. On one hand there are the people in their incense-candle-lit rooms ejaculating over the "avante-garde", "musical prowess" of the sounds of a screeching monkey and a person who has fallen asleep with their head on a keyboard. On the other, there are the horny, pubescent teenagers ejaculating (literally) over a man having a violent spasm on a drum kit and another throttling a pig in front of a microphone, AKA doom-death-grind-jazz-whatever-core.
This foul entity begins with The Moon And the Abandoned Old Woman
, an eerie 2 minutes and 42 seconds of a droning bass, what appears to be a couple having a conversation while they try to open a jar, with some strange sound effects thrown in for good measure. This would be passable as the introduction to an album of music
but it only gets worse from here. What ensues is a collection of musical instruments being abused in unspeakable ways and what a child would produce if left alone with a synthesizer for half an hour.
The only track that sounds as if it could be music is Received Back Into Moon Palace
which begins nicely with a violin playing a slightly-too-high pitched melody but inevitably, Mori comes in halfway through like a toddler that has just discovered a piano for the first time, stabbing keys in no particular order until a man walks into the wrong gig and starts singing lyrics which I do not care to decipher.
This "album" of "music" was "reviewed" as part of curseworship's Review A Random Album Game Part Iv
. Damn you, curse.
