MD 1

"The art" of music making becomes the "art itself", moving away from the visceral chic that has characterised much of improvised music, towards an investigation of tension, silence, stillness, economy, volume, sensation, time, pulse, what is it to be a musician? Indeed, what is music?
KEITH ROWE*

Comparing, let's say, to classical music or jazz or even traditional kind of improv music, our kind of music is less going from start until the end, from A to Z. I understand music much more as a field, as a canvas or even as a space. And I can move forward, can go back again, can change the directions. For me it's like shifting around the space, the canvas. Putting texture there, colour there, a line in this place, repeat this line in another angle, in another corner of the canvas. That's how I understand this music.
GÜNTER MÜLLER**

Onkyo or electro-acoustic music has become a wholesome toy which is not mysterious anymore. It reflects only the society. Today nothing is really distinctive between old electro-acoustic masters and young techno kids. They both must work as the artisans in the field that they are co-sharing.
TAKU SUGIMOTO*
