Where can I find online audio samples of onkyo movement music?

Nobukazu Takemura
Otomo Yoshihide with Martin T├ętreault.

Googling artist name + mp3 didn't return much. emusic has 5 or 6 Nobukazu Takemura albums for listening and downloading.

Aquarius Records has some.

Not mentioned in the first article, but of particular interest to you will be Toshimaru Nakamura (he of the no-input mixing desk) and Taku Sugimoto (he of the 10 minutes of silence and then one plucked guitar note). Neither of these links has audio, sorry.

Thanks for finding these for me! Interesting music. nylon, the Aquarius Records link is interesting, never knew about their store. I found some MP3 samples by doing a search for onkyo.

After listening some, I really like the stuff of Takemura and of Nakamura.

An American AxMe lurker filled me in a bit more on Onkyo movement. He says it's quite obscure, even in Japan. The music is generally improvisational, not sequenced or scored, and there's a lot of cross-polination with European musicians.

He also suggested japanimprov.com as a place to learn more.

Forgot to mention, Amazon has two full MP3 downloads of Nobukazu Takemura, along with a bunch of 30 second samples.
