Toshimura Nakamura has evolved his technique to include other source material and modifiers but he began in the typical aesthetic Japanese manner of minimalism and purity.
"Toshimaru Nakamura's instrument is the no-input mixing board, which describes a way of using a standard mixing board as an electronic music instrument, producing sound without any external audio input. The use of the mixing board in this manner is not only innovative in the the sounds it can create but, more importantly, in the approach this method of working with the mixer demands. The unpredictability of the instrument requires an attitude of obedience and resignation to the system and the sounds it produces, bringing a high level of indeterminacy and surprise to the music. Nakamura pioneered this approach to the use of the mixing board in the mid-1990's."
If you don't see the point then TRY IT.
Minimalism combined with purity and sense of purpose is quite revealing if one is open and willing to embrace the process at hand.
