Mizuchi or “Master of the Water” is a name used to describe a well known mythical Japanese water deity resembling a serpent that lives in and around water. Titled “Water Snake” in Japanese, this collaborative release showcases the sound wizardry of Japanese experimental multi-instrumentalist K.K. Null (Kazuyuki Kishino) and Ukraines’s ambient and noise artist Dao De Noize (Artem Pismenetskii). Mizuchi Creation comprises 2 tracks that flow continuously as one. Just like the impending ferocity of the serpent gliding through expanse of calm water, the album effectively maintains its sonic equilibrium of noise and soundscape through the complex balance of structured pulses, rhythmic noise, drones and hisses with the serene ambience of nature, mythology and life.

KK NULL (ZENI GEVA) teams up with Kawabata Makoto (ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE)!
Made the 1st Japan tour in November 2014 and got a lot of enthusiastic feedbacks from the audience. Their music is some unique mixture of techno/electronica, drum’n bass, noise, psychedelic, kraut-rock, etc, etc. Someone described it as “Pink Floyd meets Throbbing Gristle”. But of course it’s beyond that.
Now they will make 6 concerts in Hon Kong & China in coming March. (Details soon.)
