Nao Tokui


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. In the following year, he fully started production with Max/MSP. Read more on Last.fm
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. In the following year, he fully started production with Max/MSP.

At the same time, he started programming his own software within the Max/MSP. In the same year, he released his 1st 12" Single, "Nao Tokui&TNT/We All need" from the Belgian label, Pocket/Music Man. Also in 2002, from the Swiss label, Speaker Attack, he had a track included in their compilation, Deck Shark Series Vol. 4.

That summer, he joins PROGRESSIVE FORM as their new artist. 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. In this direction, he made his own music software, SONASPHERE - a kinetically driven 3D music programming environment in 2003.

It was one of the first experimental music softwares on Mac OS X and highly praised by both the musicians and programmers. In 2003, he released his first full album "Mind The Gap" from PROGRESSIVE FOrM. Then, he joined op.disc, a new techno label run by Fumiya Tanaka and Yoshihiro Hanno. He now lives in Tokyo and works on his second album coming in 2007. www.myspace.com/naotokui Read more on Last.fm.
