The Merzbow Archive series by Slowdown Records, which has released eight editions so far, enters its ninth edition. This edition contains unreleased material from 2001 to 2003. From 1999 to the mid-00's, the computer became the main tool in Merzbow's production, and from 2001~2003, this method of production led to such notable works as "Dharma" (Double H Noise Industries, 2001), "Merzbeat" (Important Records, 2002), and "A Taste Of..." (Mego, 2002).
This album "SCSI Duck 2" contains tracks from the 2004 album "SCSI Duck" (Fourth Dimention, UK) and unreleased material recorded on the same day. The first track, in which a variety of noises continue to morph over a cyclical swell of bass, is played on a laptop, but has the same rushing speed as the analog equipment era. The third track, on the other hand, is a richly varied performance, from the first half of the track, where a wall of noise blocks the view, to a gradually repeating sound, and then to the last part of the track, where rapid filtering is used to manipulate the sound like a cut.
