Press release from A Bruit Secret: mid-2001

Toshimaru Nakamura lives and works in Tokyo. He belongs to the new improvisation scene in Tokyo, "Onkyo", with other musicians like Sachiko M., Otomo Yoshihide, Tetuzi Akiyama, Utah Kawasaki. He is also a member of a duo named Repeat with American percussionist Jason Kahn, and elaborates several other projects in the field of improvisation, collaborating with people like Keith Rowe, Andrea Neumann or Bruno Meillier. The precept of the mix could just about define the aesthetic of our era, the era of the technoculture. Toshimaru Nakamura has chosen this era's very technology as the basis of his work, using a mixing desk in a loop in order to produce a kind of minimalist electronic music, by radicalising this immovable system. His work could be heard as the work of a sonic designer, if not for the fact that the process of improvisation is the chore of his relationship with the sonic event. A "Discreet music" that let the secret sounds of technologies and their bugs be heard.
