13 Japanese Birds is a 15 album series by the Japanese noise musician Merzbow. It was inspired by Olivier Messiaen's Catalogue d'oiseaux (Catalog of birds), but has no direct musical relationship. The series originally consisted of 13 albums released on a monthly basis from January 2009 to January 2010. They were also recorded one a month, and Masami Akita frequently revisited older recordings. It was also part of his then-recent return to live drums.
Suzume is the first album of the box set 13 Japanese Birds, released by the noise artist Merzbow on January of 2009. The title refers to the bird "Suzume" or "Sparrow" (in english). Red Bird Of Summer Part 1 - 19:42. Fandangos In Space - 5:41. Red Bird Of Summer Part 2 - 17:06. Masami Akita - Music. Jenny Akita - Artworks.

The truth is, however, that yurikamome is the Tokyo prefecture's official bird, a black-headed gull, which makes far more sense in the title of Merzbow's (Asami Makita) third entry in his 13 Japanese Birds series of recordings.
ABOUT THE CD SERIES: Merzbow's 13 Japanese Birds is a 13 month/13 CD set that began January 2009 and ended February 2010. This series was inspired by Olivier Messaien's Catalogue D'Oiseaux. ABOUT THE BAMBOO BOX: These were hand crafted, numbered, screen printed and constructed of organic imported Moso bamboo. The box holds all 13 cds and they were painstakingly crafted, one a day, by a Massachusetts craftsman.
