PAINJERK is one-man sonic army runs by Kohei Gomi (b.1963).
Gomi began home-recordings of the experiment of the sound in the mid-80s. He mixed influence of the punk art and influence of method of psychosomatic surrealist. The recorded / performed work does not have each with the independent meanings and is the pieces of assemblage. And it is also the pieces produced by obsession.
PAINJERK is one of the more prolific and influential sound artists of the 90s, and is one of the leading figures in the brutal style as electro-acoustic outsider.
This is not the improvisation. This is not the composition. This is kind of the automatic-act by the encoded sound. It becomes the machinery and is beauty beyond extreme music.
