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."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Toshimaru Nakamura's No Input Mixing Board instrument is without question one of the most personal and experimental explorations of its kind. Over ten volumes, Nakamura has stretched the capacities of the mixing console in ways that both shock and delight. He maintains a tireless sense of curiosity, seeking to constantly expand the range of the instrument and subvert its preconceived role.

On Culvert - NIMB 10, Nakamura's work takes on an incredibly dynamic and at times volcanic quality. Each piece, moves between passages of deep rhythm and pulse which give way to caustic swaths of feedback, noise, and, at times, a deep sense of harmony. The compositions are minimalist in their form, but remain unconstrained, often veering into unexpected moments of deep quiet or explosive post-techno like grinds.

Culvert, the tenth volume in the No Input Mixing Board (NIMB) instrument series, expands the languages and approaches outlined on his previous effort, the ninth volume, which was released by Room40 in 2018. It is a testament to Nakamura's skills as a producer, but moreover a recognition of his incredible craft and aesthetic sensibilities when it comes to creating something profound from literally nothing at all."-Room 40



"From Toshimaru Nakamura

There used to be several small streams in west Tokyo, where I live. Some of them were natural rivers flowing from springs in this area. Others were from further west.

Towards the east, down to the sea of Tokyo Bay, there are others which were man-made, created to distribute water. Now, most of these rivers are covered by concrete lids and many parts of them are converted into pathways with nicely lined-up trees and benches. Some stretches of these rivers even have an artificial brooks on top of the lids to recreate the landscape of the old days. Sort of a "double decker river".

Sitting on one of those benches, I think of the water flowing below, in the dark."
