John Cage’s legendary composition 4'33" is the icon of all pauses. With ten cover versions, Berlin-based musicians and bands with different musical backgrounds and histories of resistance celebrate this embodiment of music’s absence and the texture of silence.
In cooperation withAntje Øklesund
At the end of the 1990s Nakamura exchanged the rock guitar for the mixing desk and began to experiment with sound textures and a reduction to minimal gestures. His No Input Mixing Desk means: a mixing desk, a cable, modeling the feedback loop between input and output to create a fascinating landscape of “silent noise.”
