    I would heart this very much. Venetian Snares > Merzbow > Aphex Twin in the Zaharaz

    not sure if serious but i'd like to see him in one of the tents. the sahara would obviously be too big though as the crowd would definitely be on the smaller side. i think a 2-5am monday morning campsite performance would be awesome. put him in the bed of a truck and just drive down the isles waking up all the assholes who finally passed out after keeping everyone else awake 3 nights in a row with all their partying.

    BONUS: decorate the truck to look like a boat, insist it is one of the art pieces, call it the merzboat. feel free to use this idea GV

    Even the biggest Merzbow fan wouldn't last more than 15 minutes if he played on a gigantic soundsystem. Do headache meds play nice with psychedelics?

    Not sure about this, when I saw him 11 years ago the soundsystem he had was pretty substantial. Nothing as nice as Coachella's current soundsystems but it did the trick. Also, the show was more of a low, deep, noise set vs. loud, jarring.

    Well I was joking about the Sahara, but yeah, I'd love if he were there. I saw Merzbow three times in September and each was awesome. And about having him on a giant soundsystem, all the better. I didn't get a headache from any of the very high volume sets I saw.
