私、中村としまるは、即興演奏を専らとする演奏家であって、自ら名付けた”no-input mixing board” を主に演奏に用いる。市販品の小型オーディオミキサーに、通常の使用法から逸脱する、やや無理な結線を施して、音楽制作においてはしばしば忌避されるであろうフィードバック音を発生せしめ、これをあえて、音楽を成立させると了解を取り合った現場に持ち込む。”no-input mixing board” とは、通常の使用法ではその入力端子に供給されるはずの音声情報が与えられていないミキサーという意味である。この手法の特性上、自らの演奏を完全に制御することは不可能であって、予期せず起こる事象を如何に受け入れていくかが、演奏中の私に与えられた課題である。

Toshimaru Nakamura (no-input mixing board) // Biography
His instrument is the no-input mixing board, which describes a way of using a standard mixing board as an electronic music instrument, producing sound without any external audio input. The use of the mixing board in this manner is not only innovative in the the sounds it can create but, more importantly, in the approach this method of working with the mixer demands. The unpredictability of the instrument requires an attitude of obedience and resignation to the system and the sounds it produces, bringing a high level of indeterminacy and surprise to the music. Nakamura pioneered this approach to the use of the mixing board in the mid-1990’s and has since then appeared on over one hundred audio publications, including nine solo CD’s.
He has performed throughout Europe, North America, Argentina, New Zealand, Australia, Korea, China, Singapore and Malaysia, performing and recording both as a soloist and in collaboration with numerous other musicians.
As an active organizer of concerts in Tokyo, Nakamura has helped many musicians coming to Japan find places to perform, both with himself and with others. From 1998 to 2003 Nakamura and Tetuzi Akiyama ran the concert series Improvisation Series at Bar Aoyama and then later the Meeting at Off Site series of concerts. Both these concert series were crucially important in exposing a new manner to improvised music (referred to as Electro Acoustic Improvisation) to the Japanese public and to foreign musicians visiting Japan, making Tokyo one of the global hotspots for this new approach to music.
