Uzu Me Ku is an album by the Japanese noise musician Merzbow. It features the Koto, a traditional Japanese instrument, "manipulated through granular synthesis by digital and analogue electronics devices." According to Masami Akita, "Uzume Hikoyuzu" means "spiral generating" and "Itsu Akitsu" means "generating of particles". The album photos were taken at the Nagasawa Purification Plant in Kawasaki, Japan, which was designed by Mamoru Yamada (who also designed the Nippon Budokan).
The album was announced in January 2012. On January 28, Merzbow posted a sample mix from the track "Itsu Akitsu" on his SoundCloud page. It was originally scheduled to be released on May 30, but due to problems at the pressing plant it wasn't released until August.
