3Rensa is a Tokyo based free electronics improvisation ensemble comprised of Merzbow, Nyantor and Duenn. Together these three musicians create free roaming performances that push inward, suggesting a sense of an inner acoustic cosmos and perpetual unfolding.
Another World exemplifies this approach; colliding harsh electronics, with psychedelic undercurrents and unsteady rhythmic eruptions. Each piece, mixed by one member of the ensemble, is a deconstructed and re-arranged, a concréte style recreation of live performance, dipped in personal memory and reconstituted. The results reflect the individual interests and aesthetics of each member, whilst representing the trio as a whole.
A solid, intriguing journey into electronic-acoustic assimilation that complements and enhances their previous communion. It's not an ear blowout. It's a stroll through the burning and charred autumn woods with fascinating and ugly discoveries at every step. MERZILLA
This record arrived shortly before quarantine began for me. It has been a wonderful companion to the noise and other sounds permeating everyday life - Kyouhan has been a source of inspiration and introspection throughout b_severns
