Along with Merzbow and Hijokaidan, Masonna is one of the best (known) Japanese noise projects. A psychedelic touch, cascades of electronic noise, and vocal belching mixed together constitute the ingredients of Mademoiselle Anne Sanglante Ou Notre Nymphomanie Auréolé (1993), the double-barreled named for Masonna. Yamazaki "Maso" Takushi created Masonna in 1987 and he started recording for his own legendary label Coquette. His plentiful productions were presented in an ultra-limited edition, sometime totally confidential (one sole copy), on cassette, 7" acetate disc produced by a portable cutting machine, and Minidisc. They contributed to create a mythology based above all on the astonishing intensity with which "Maso" devastates and reprocesses the vocal cords, in a true "total electronic song". In his impressive live performances, he created and electrically overcharged universe, punctuating the electric and vocal sonorous power with some quite moments and brief interruptions, conferring a very particular dynamic to his pieces. Studio recordings are making full use skillfully editing how to edit cut-up, in which elaborate lump-sum making has been performed, the psychedelic taste for each track of time is taken into consideration, Yamazaki extends musical width. Masonna is an emblematic figure of Japanoise, who shines by a personal approach and an immediately recognizable style. A zenith in the noisy Japanese landscape. Urashima present seven amazing Coquette tapes for the first time remastered digitally on four CD in an exclusive black wooden box with laser-engraving: Like A Vagina (1988), All Live Recording At My Room (1989), Mad Onna (1989), Maso + Onna = Masonna (1989), Hate (1995), Freak (1995), and Filled With Unquestionable Feelings (1995).
