A few months ago I've posted a rare collaboration cassette between Jean-Louis Houchard & Masami Akita.
Here is a second rare collaboration cassette between the japanese king of noise and another obscure french artist.

Psychic Rally was a radio show done by Rudolf Eb.er and Joke Lanz, using a great variety of sound sources to produce a kind of original composition, a little like RRRon's Due Process in the US.
These two tapes include a long list of contributions that can not always be easily recognized.
A few weeks ago, when he left a comment here, I've discovered that PBK - one of my favourite post-industrial musicians - was doing what I wish many sound artists did : he has a blog, The Sound Genetic, where he's posting his own music compositions, many of them previously unreleased or carefully remastered.
His last post is a wonderful archive CD, A Noise Supreme, Early Solo Works 1986-89, that was released two years ago in a very limited edition. This is what I'm re-posting here.

"To put your entire musical output on one CD, and thus offering the "complete works by" - what an interesting idea (that's why I am so fond of Varese and Webern - the consequent, small body of work). In the mid 80s somebody recorded as Tibetan Red, having one track on the LP 'Freedom In A Vacuum', the first release by a label with the same name and a cassette on that very same label. That somebody came from Spain, went to Canada and is now in Southern Europe. Thus we see the CD released on a label from Barcelona.
'Scanning' (the comp piece aswell in it's complete form on cassette) is an excellent piece of layered shortwave sounds, morse codes and underlying drones from a synth. 'Kalahari Fire Birth' uses many unidentifable sounds, set against the tape-loop (sampling was virtually non-existent in those days) of ethno origin. A raw version of zoviet*france like ambience. 'The Sistine Chapel' is a previously unreleased track, and also works with looped ethno material, here the didgeredoo. All three tracks clock at 20 minutes and all have a trance like spirit, without leaping into boredom. What I particulary like about this CD is the undated, fresh rawness of the 80s cassette movement, transformed to CD. An aural document of the 'anything goes' attitude, which Vital owes it's credit to, too".
