"The first time, a folk guitar slips, arpeggio or noises, on the expressions larvae of different experimenters - Kahn's long tablecloths (which sometimes fantasize the use of a cello) contrasts with the abridged finds of Toshimaru - The association will succeed however in tangling the game of cords loose. The second time, the trio agrees on a return amp to decide then to walk in companions. In the cloud they raise, many treble: high and taut chords, whistles and feedback of the machinery. Two ways, forced perhaps by two forms of space, to return an environment with the same energy."-Guillaume Belhomme at Le son du grisli

• Show Bio for Toshimaru Nakamura
"Toshimaru Nakamura is a Japanese musician, active in free improvisation and Japanese onkyo.
He began his career playing rock and roll guitar, but gradually explored other types of music, even abandoning guitar, and started working on circuit bending. He uses a mixing console as a live, interactive musical instrument: "Nakamura plays the 'no-input mixing board', connecting the input of the board to the output, then manipulating the resultant audio feedback."
Nakamura's music has been described as "sounds ranging from piercing high tones and shimmering whistles to galumphing, crackle-spattered bass patterns."
Nakamura founded the ensemble A Paragon of Beauty in 1992. He has recorded solo albums, worked as a session musician, and collaborated with artists including Sachiko M ("a kindred spirit"), Otomo Yoshihide, Keith Rowe, John Butcher, Nicholas Bussmann, Taku Sugimoto, Tetuzi Akiyama, dancer Kim Ito, and drummer Jason Kahn."-Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toshimaru_Nakamura)
