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. »[1][2]
Nakamura’s music has been described as « sounds ranging from piercing high
tones and shimmering whistles to galumphing, crackle-spattered bass
patterns. »[3]

PHIL MINTON/AUDREY CHEN
PHIL MINTON:
Phil Minton comes from Torquay. He played trumpet and sang with the Mike
Westbrook Band in the early 60s- Then in dance and rock bands in Europe
for the later of part of the decade. He returned to England in 1971,
rejoining Westbrook and was involved in many of his projects until the mid
1980Œs.
For most of the last forty years, Minton has been working as a improvising
singer in lots of groups, orchestras, and situations, all over the place.
Numerous composers have written music especially for his extended vocal
techniques. He has a quartet with Veryan Weston, Roger Turner and John
Butcher, and ongoing duos, trios and quartets with above and many other
musicians.

AUDREY CHEN
AUDREY CHEN is a Chinese-American musician who was born into a family of
material scientists, doctors and engineers, outside of Chicago in 1976.
Parting ways with the family convention, she turned to the cello at age 8
and voice at 11. After years of classical and conservatory training in
both instruments, with a resulting specialization in early and new music,
she parted ways again in 2003 to begin new negotiations with sound in
order to discover a more individually honest aesthetic.
Now, using the cello, voice and analog electronics, Chenfs work delves
deeply into her own version of narrative and non-linear storytelling. A
large component of her music is improvised and her approach to this is
extremely personal and visceral. Her playing explores the combination and
layering of a homemade analog synthesizer, preparations and traditional
and extended techniques in both the voice and cello. She works to join
these elements into a singular ecstatic personal language.

Thanjs for reading.

I woould like to hear from you asap.

All the best.

Alain
