    To fans of free improvisation and the Japanese onkyo, or noise scene, Toshimaru Nakamura needs no introduction; to newcomers, the name of his instrument the no-input mixing board may sound forbidding, as if its output would sound more machine than music. But for over a decade, Nakamura has cultivated a world of tones from this unlikely instrument, both harsh and mesmerizing, humanist and expansive with something to lure in music fans of any stripe. Says founder of Samadhisound David Sylvian, Egrets has Toshi's signature minimalist stamp but sonically there's a lot more variation to this work. I have great admiration for Toshi, for his sense of discipline, his risk taking, his openness, generosity and intelligence. Learn more: www.samadhisound.com/toshimarunakamura Dir: Phil Hopkins.
