"Keith Rowe and Toshimaru Nakamura are two of the most important musicians in the world today. Fans of each other's work, they began to collaborate in early 2001, and have created in Weather Sky a timeless work of art. Rowe, who is best known for his groundbreaking work with AMM (the seminal improvising collective he co-founded in 1965 with Eddie Prévost and Lou Gare), also currently leads the Music In Movement Electronic Orchestra, an all-star group featuring many of Europe's premier electronic musicians. Nakamura plays the 'no-input mixing board', connecting the input of the board to the output, then manipulating the resultant feedback. Since 1998, he's been exploring the possibilities of his instrument in contexts ranging from solo to collaborations with Sachiko M, Andrea Neumann, and the duo project Repeat with drummer Jason Kahn. Weather Sky was recorded in Saint-Etienne, France in June 2001, and consists of three live improvisations totalling 73 minutes. Both musicians almost entirely sublimate their egos throughout, creating a pure abstract feedback, with occasional flecks of sound jumping to the foreground, combining to produce a sense of eternity."
