Lately listening to instrumentals, words get in the way.
Going back to the edge of 2000, 14 years ago, a collaboration of 'East meets West' began between Japan's founding member of Acid Mothers Temple Makoto Kawabata and France's  Jean-Francois Pauvros.

'Extreme- Onction'; the first encounter between the two experimental guitarists, takes me back to my first ear-encounter with the Cosmic Jokers' collaborations of Gottsching and Schulze of Ash Ra Tempel... once played as the intro/outro of Space Pirate Radio.

Here's Kawabata Pauvros live.
