魔ゼルな規犬 (Mazelnakiken) is a street performer, sound poet, and musician. He’s part of Japan’s currently ongoing performance art scene, which I’ve posted about before. 魔ゼルな規犬 is both the name of the horse headed guy, real name Daisuke Inoue, and his music “group” which consists of himself, a doll, and every now and then his girlfriend.
魔ゼルな規犬 is known for his extremely fast ranting. His distinct voice sounds awesome with how fast he rants at people on street corners, in parks, outside venues, and so on. He does both street and venue performances, and oddly enough his attire usually changes depending on what kind of performance it is. Usually an all black suit with a non-matching tie for venues then much more casual outfits with flip flops of all things for street performances. I feel its important to point out the flip flops, lots of these performers get arrested or violent responses from the forced audience, wearing shoes that aren’t good for running shows how little he cares about being arrested.
His performances usually consist of walking around, standing, pacing, whatever while ranting and yelling very fast, often amplified. Sometimes he uses props like dildos, big notebooks, his girlfriend, and the doll. He seemingly uses the doll for social commentary, performances where its used he has conversations with the doll while turning the camera on people. Also during venue performances he will often randomly play the drums, often moving his head in a way that suggests its beautiful while he taps the cymbals offbeat.
Surprisingly though, unlike the rest of the scene this dude doesn’t really do noise music. Instead he does IDM, ambient, breakcore, and sometimes rather lengthy spoken word pieces. His style is really pretty sounding and he uses samples of speaking in a pretty unique way, hard to explain but you’ll know what I mean when you hear it. He sometimes rants over his music for performances.
His website is extremely hard to navigate since EVERYTHING moves and there’s a million links. Here are links to the pages that have music, just right click the links and click “save as”.
Also, here’s the homepage in case you want to explore around a bit more: http://sitenn.finito.fc2.com/1.html
Here’s some videos of his performances. Sadly looks like a bunch of videos went down. One of the ones that went down was a street performance with an unknown girl that involved public masturbation, skirt flipping (on minors), and molestation; brilliant~! Really wish it was still on Youtube.
