Nakamura, Toshimaru : maruto (erstwhile)
Label: erstwhile    
Released in: USA    


Using his no-input mixing board Toshimaru Nakamura, perhaps the ultimate Onkyo artist, spent two years creating this work, which is also the second release in the Erstsolo series. Nakamura constructs this 46 minute piece from recordings of his mixer, which generates a combination of hum, glitch, buzz and subliminally disruptive sound. He develops the results into gentle and non-violent textural and impressionistic music that unfolds in a meditative and absorbing manner. That Nakamura can make so much out of so little is remarkable, and the album is an engaging example of seemingly antithetical approaches to music making that tells a fully formed story. Powerfully understated sound, very much recommended.
