descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Butcher and Nakamura first played together in 2002 at "Super Deluxe" in Tokyo at the invitation of promoter Hisashi Teruchi. The concert was released as half of "Cavern with Nightlife" prompting Jason Bivins (Dusted Magazine) to write: "Not only is Nakamura one of the worlds great improvisers working today, I am hugely impressed with Butchers ability to work in concert with him. Whisper soft soprano squeaks and gently coaxed feedback saxophone meld fluidly, seamlessly with the stripped-metal tones from Nakamura. And Butchers occasional crackles and sizzling flareups from his electronics derail some of Nakamura's more restrained inclinations in provocative ways, especially in the pieces wonderfully nasty conclusion. Lets hope there's more to come from this duo."

Further chances to develop the duo have happenend back in Japan, and in London and France. When the two musicians were invited to record in London for David Sylvian's "When we return you won't recognize us" project they set the next afternoon aside to visit Dave Hunt's Shepherd's Bush studio and made the recording that is now Dusted Machinery.

JOHN BUTCHER was born in Brighton, England and has lived in London since the late 1970s. His music ranges through improvisation, his own compositions, multitracked pieces and explorations with feedback and extreme acoustics. He has toured and broadcast in Europe, Japan, Australia and North America, and was featured, playing solo, in the BBC TV programme Date with an Artist. Compositions include pieces for Chris Burn's Ensemble, reconstructed Futurist Intonarumori, the Austrian group Polwechsel, the Australian ensemble Elision, the American Rova Saxophone Quartet, and "somethingtobesaid" for the John Butcher Group.

Originally a physicist, he published his Ph.D, "Spin effects in the production and weak decay of heavy Quarks", in 1982 and promptly left academia for music. He has since collaborated with hundreds of musicians, mostly involved with improvisation - including Derek Bailey, John Stevens, Gerry Hemingway, Polwechsel, Gino Robair, Rhodri Davies, Radu Malfatti, John Edwards, Toshimaru Nakamura, Eddie Prevost, Paul Lovens, Christian Marclay, John Russell, Andy Moor, Phil Minton and Steve Beresford. He has recorded with both the SME and AMM. Alongside long term collaborations he particularly values playing in occasional encounters, which have ranged from large groups such as Butch Morris' London Skyscraper and the EX Orkestra, to duo concerts with Fred Frith, John Tilbury, TakuSugimoto, Duck Baker and Akio Suzuki. Solo concerts and recordings have long been a particular enthusiasm. Thirteen Friendly Numbers, his first (1992) solo release, includes pieces for multitracked saxophones, whilst later releases focus both on live performance and amplification and saxophone-controlled feedback. Resonant Spaces is a collection of sitespecific performances collected during a tour of unusual locations in Scotland and the Orkney Islands.

TOSHIMARU NAKAMURA has been producing electronic music on self-named "no-input mixing board." The name describes the method of his music. "No" external sound source is connected to "inputs" of the "mixing board" He has been perforrming live concerts in Tokyo, mostly working with improvisers from the hometown and different places. He has travelled around Europe, the USA, Argentina, New Zealand and Australia since the middle of 1990's until now, for meeting, working and playing concerts with other musicians."-Monotype Records

Artist Biographies:

"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."

"John Butcher's work ranges through improvisation, his own compositions, multitracked pieces and explorations with feedback and extreme acoustics.Originally a physicist, he left academia in '82, and has since collaborated with hundreds of musicians - Derek Bailey, John Tilbury, John Stevens, The EX, Akio Suzuki, Gerry Hemingway, Polwechsel, Gino Robair, Rhodri Davies, Okkyung Lee, John Edwards, Toshi Nakamura, Paul Lovens, Eddie Prevost, Mark Sanders, Christian Marclay, Otomo Yoshihide, Phil Minton, and Andy Moor - to name a few.

Resonant Spaces is a collection of site-specific performances collected during a tour of unusual locations in Scotland and the Orkney Islands.His first solo album, Thirteen Friendly Numbers, includes compositions for multitracked saxophones, whilst later solo CDs focus on live performance, composition, amplification and saxophone-controlled feedback.

HCMF has twice commissioned him to compose for his own large ensembles. Other commissions include for Elision (Australia), the Rova (USA) & Quasar (Canada) Saxophone Quartets, reconstructed Futurist Intonarumori (USA), "Tarab Cuts" (based on pre-WWII Arabic recordings, and shortlisted for the 2014 British Composer's Award) and "Good Liquor .." for the London Sinfonietta. In 2011 he received a Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Artists.

Recent groupings include The Apophonics with Robair and Edwards, Anemone with Peter Evans, Plume with Tony Buck & Magda Mayas and a trio with Okkyung Lee & Mark Sanders.Butcher values playing in occasional encounters - ranging from large groups such as Butch Morris' London Skyscraper and the EX Orkestra, to duo concerts with David Toop, Kevin Drumm, Claudia Binder, Paal Nilssen-Love, Thomas Lehn, Fred Frith, Keiji Haino, Ute Kangeisser, Matthew Shipp and Yuji Takahashi."
