缘起
迷恋Toshi的音乐已经很久,他是那种随性和纯粹的日本乐手,乐器是无中生有的无输入调音台,他的音乐是安静但充满变化的噪音,高度概念但又很美。
2007年,因为FM3的介绍,撒把芥末/观音唱片发表了他和柏林音乐家Nicholas Bussmann合作的CD“我知道你怎样皱眉”。后来我们在“Asian Meeting Festival”见面,说起要请他来北京喝一杯。然后看他和英国萨克斯手John Butcher的合奏:看他演出的确是一种享受,像喝着冰凉的啤酒,和喜欢的人一起坐在三里屯南街的酒吧二楼,静静地看国庆焰火。没想到三里屯南街不再有,但美妙的音乐很快又要响起了。
第一次听到内桥和久的演奏,是在电影《蓝风筝》的配乐里。后来发现他和很多熟悉的名字都有合作。2011年,有朋友收到他的邮件,说计划来中国巡演,我们就此联系上,很快在新加坡的声音艺术节上碰面,商定了细节。在艺术节上看他演奏,一会儿是吉他和一桌子效果器,声音也非常繁复,一会儿是daxophone(他是日本有记录的惟一演奏这种乐器的人),木头的声音。真是个忙碌的哥们啊。
很高兴能促成这次演出,尤其是作为好朋友即兴委员会的成员,和他们一起演奏。

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.”
He founded an ensemble A Paragon of Beauty in 1992.
Nakamura has recorded solo albums and has collaborated with Yoshihide Otomo, Keith Rowe, John Butcher, and Nicholas Bussmann among others. He has also collaborated with Taku Sugimoto, Tetuzi Akiyama, dancer Kim Ito, drummer Jason Kahn, and Sachiko M, “a kindred spirit”.

Liu Xinyu:
Plays no-input mix board, effector and sometimes guitar. Working on simple and subtle sound in development. http://site.douban.com/liuxinyu

VAVABOND As one of the few female experimental musicians in Mainland China, VAVABOND began from large volume noise music by using Max/MSP, and concentrating on cosmic sounds and electronic improvisation with Max 5 as the major creative interface nowadays. Besides solo project, VAVABOND also formed a psychedelic noise group and an improvisational duo with Li Jianhong, for performance and creation. In Vagus Nerve’s second album, Lo Pan, released by Utech, Wei Wei’s laptop and Jianhong’s guitar respond with each other, while VAVABOND’s high volume sonic drones leave listeners breathless.
Nowadays, VAVABOND’s unique sonic style is still deeply rooted in her special enthusiasm to the hiss and buzz of insects, electromagnetism, crop circles, outer space, extraterrestrial life, and the cosmos—everything that is related to preternatural and unexplained events. The electronic glitches in her lives, which sound quite spontaneous and improvising, realize her conception to the world – to divide an integral entirety into infinite parts to get infinite entireties. In China’s free improvisation music scene, VAVABOND occupies a place of her own.
Activities she involves in include several experimental/noise and new media art events, such as NOIShanghai, Get It Louder Exhibition, Homeshow, 2pi Festival, Jelly Times Exhibition, the Central Subconsciousness of the Refabricating City-Hong Kong / Shenzhen Architecture Exhibition, Shanghai E-Art Festival, Sally Can’t Dance Music Festival, Mini Midi Music Festival, UCCA Concerts of Sub Jam, and also many other art exhibitions and fashion shows as a sound artist and musician.
