Nao Tokui – Mind The Gap

10/01/2010

abstract, IDM, ambient

Born in 1976 and resides in Tokyo. His production forte is to produce high quality, four-to-the floor which is tight and moreover groovy, with an element of speed. In 1998, he started DJing techno as well as producing minimal techno. In 2000, having seen the limit of production capacities of the combination of his own written C language software and AKAI MPC2000, he met up with the music programming software, Max/MSP.

And as a researcher studying at university, he conducted researches on Artificial Life and Complex systems and finished his PhD thesis about emerging systems and the computer-human interaction. He thinks that both “the act of producing music” as well as ” the act of writing music programs” are similar and it is “a way of self-expression”. He would like to both utilize and combine “music production” and “software programming” and appeal both elements in the future.
