Ground Zero - Consume Red

Ground Zero were an astonishing collective with Otomo Yoshihide at the helm. This is simply his good self sampling Kim Suk Chul playing the Hojok (a Korean double reed wind instrument) and then giving it the Otomo Yoshihide treatment.

That is until around 25 minutes when everybody else arrives and it transforms into another half hour of the greatest bass and drum foundation ... and the sample returns and returns ... and it destroys itself ... and the sample returns and returns.

The only downside is that this eventually ends. Just play this on a perpetual loop. Your life will be fulfilled. You don't need anything else.

For me, this is truly a work of beauty. Words are overrated, just listen.

The preceding two posts are other artists re-imagining this wonderful thing. All three are exquisite in their own way ... but nothing / no thing is better than this!

This one was released on Creativeman Disc. in 1997.

when i unpack my cd's i will check to see if i have your request.

most of my files have been corrupted ( my hard drive crapped out ,
i was only able to retrieve half of 4 terabytes of music, every file is missing have of the records material..
i lost a ton of Japanese, a lot of the Acid mother temple that you previously posted as well as tones of other stuff.

so give me time and i will see what i can find for you.
