Katsura Yamauchi, a sax player based in Oita, Kyushu, is a forceful presence on the music scene inside and outside Japan. Toshimaru Nakamura, who plays the no-input mixing board (using the feedback sounds from inside the mixer), has performed extensively in Japan and internationally, earning high acclaim in Europe and the U.S. This CD documents their duo improvisation in Beppu, Oita, on April 7, 2012. The playing starts quietly, then turns into a super-high-tension session in which the two bombard each other with unexpectedly furious sound. One 30-minute track.
