Makoto Kawabata

Guitarist and multi-instrumentalist from Japan. Leader of Acid Mothers Temple. While he is best known for his earsplitting, guitar heroics with AMT, he is also the founder of his own school of ecstatic guitar drone using bowing and glissando techniques. He started releasing works for electronics and homemade instruments in 1978. Since then his activities have been almost too wide ranging to grasp.
