Musica Transonic biography
Asahito's sudden request could construct a temporary premier psychedelic project.

MUSICA TRANSONIC were formed by three ardent, impressing individualities under Japanese psychedelic rock scene - Asahito NANJOH (bass; ex-High Rise), Makoto KAWABATA (guitar; ex-Acid Mothers Temple), and Tatsuya YOSHIDA (drums; ex-Ruins) - as an improvised, free-styled psychedelic progressive rock outfit in 1995. They have very unique style that each player produces heavy, loud, confusing psychedelia based on simple riffs with insistence on musical attitude and with support of the others, simultaneously.

MUSICA TRANSONIC released six albums for five years, sometimes in collaboration with Kenji Haino (voices; ex-Fushitsusha).

3 stars The following work of MUSICA TRANSONIC - А Πιλγριμδ Σολαχε (1996) - is a bit more polished.

Just like the previous 'exploded' confession by three loudspeakers, MUSICA TRANSONIC has come back to us with a bulky mass of improvised loudness. Needless to say, neither pretensions nor modesty in them and their second work А Πιλγριμδ Σολαχε, but uniquely we can find some more 'refinement' in it than their debut one. Exactly there was some improvement on their recording quality (not intentionally?), but I guess, one of more important point is that they could have something united or arranged well upon this work.

Listen to the first track, and this can remind us the middle part of 21st Century Schizoid Man - some battles among Fripp's guitar and Greg & Micheal's rhythm section - you know? Basically they played impromptu and freely, but we can feel some stability in them, despite of a certain crazy loudness in their debut. Without any suspicion, Makoto's guitar can be very loud and aggressive, with such noises like peep-peep-shoot-shoot, and Tatsuya's drumming can also be flexible and intentionally scattered, like some arrhythmia in a dancing heart. Let me insist upon this - Asahito's bass solo has very steady potential energy, supporting the other instruments and players entirely exploded on their own way.

Not only massive attacks, but something folksy and relaxing in such as sixth tracks. Of course, a completely improvised aggression should be in the last one. Japanese loud psychedelia, with colourful variation ... very fascinating album.

3 stars You can imagine how pleasantly they should be playing together in this album.

As if we can see their delightful faces and appearances. From the very beginning, we can be shocked and immersed by their extremely loud attacks via their psychedelic launcher. Completely improvised ensemble with remarkably simple riffs of tremendous scattered noises and music notes, they can throw into our brain mercilessly from start to finish. Indeed cannot understand obviously what they emphasize with their free-formed instrumental explosions, but I do consider it's no bad to feel their magnificent skills and talents, and especially much power for them to enjoy playing. All of them - Tatsuya's flexible and impressing drumming, Speed Guru's firing guitar solo, and ... let me make the assertion ... Asahito's seriously strict bass solo without any blurring. Asahito has entirely supported his own band High Rise's play and style, and he can let us know how his bass play should be aggressive, extreme, crazy, and hedonistic. :-P

Whatever everyone says, here is the most loudly aggressive psychedelia by three eccentricities and egocentricities. Psychedelic Progressive Rock freaks' must.

Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition.
