  Sachiko M: Good Morning Good Night [with Toshimaru Nakamura and Otomo Yoshihide]: Pitchfork Record Review
Sachiko M, Toshimaru Nakamura and Yoshihide Otomo need no introduction to anyone following electro-acoustic improv ("EAI"), and specifically Tokyo's Onkyo scene; they're the three most celebrated proponents of minimal electronic improvisation in Japan.
The first segment of the piece seemed to signify only hints of movement underneath a horizon, and after a resulting clamor, Sachiko's "voice" is like the initiation of the normal morning routine.
Sachiko's sampler has a brief, fragmented volley with Otomo's turntable, moderated by the sine from Nakamura's no-input mixing board; I'm hard pressed to read much into it, but it's one of the cooler moments on the set.

 Sachiko Nakamura Memorial by Anna L. Conti
Sachiko's art form was performance, but she was a boundary-crosser in the finest tradition of the trickster.
Sachiko moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1969, where she continued to learn dance with organizations at the university and participated as a volunteer with the day activity program at the VA Hospital in Dearborn, Michigan.
Sachiko continued to develop a strong partnership with the organization she started and was recently honored at the Asian American Dance Performances’ 30th Anniversary.

But Toshimaru Nakamura and Sachiko M, working in various solo, duo, and group settings, have developed the responsiveness and instincts required to transform such self-imposed instrumental limitations into powerful musical means.
Sachiko M's sine pierces through during the opening moments, sounding as indomitable as a diamond drill bit.
In turn, Sachiko M alters her waveform tactics to circumvent Nakamura's comparatively passive counter-attack.

I guess because the improvised organization of sound that Toshi Nakamura and Sachiko M are currently pursuing seems so remote from the 20th century notion of producing recordings in multiples for commercial distribution to an unwitting public.
They are a duo made for each other, since their squidging of soft buttons and fine tweaking of knobs and faders produces a whiskered, puttering murmur of spirit voices, bat chat, submarine proximity detection, hypobranchial rasping, and microchiroptera ultrasound that seems somehow inevitable and utterly right in its harmoniousness.
Sachiko M plays sample-less sampler, and Nakamura uses the no-input mixing board--both instruments which conceptually produce no sound, yet these two conjure it out, somehow.

 * Dusted Reviews - Sachiko M *
Sachiko M draws a clear, straight line of sound from the beginning to the end.
Yet, all actual sound is reducible to the basic vibrations that Sachiko deals with, her palette rigidly remains within the earliest stages of audibility, preceding instrument, preceding voice.
For 20 minutes, Sachiko steadily enamors the listener with his or her own ability to hear, caustically scrubbing memory and context, leaving the listener utterly lost and blissful.

franz hautzinger (quarter-tone trumpet, grob 211, grob 313/4, grob 425, grob 435, grob 544), sachiko m (sinus generator, contact microphones, grob 432, 435), otomo yoshihide (guitar, turntables, grob 432) are all world renowned musicians and improvisers who have mastered the use of musical stillness.
part 1 was the cd thumb (grob 432, recently re-released, rowe/ambarchi/avenaim in a quintet with oren ambarchi/sachiko m and otomo yoshihide); part 3, which will be released in nine months, will document the first real-time duo gig of ambarchi and rowe.
ambarchi, rowe, yoshihide and m have strongly influenced the new improvised music of the 90's on numerous records and leave no doubt that they are playing the music of the moment in the new decade.

 POP REVIEW; A Light and Sound Show, Bright, Flashing and Loud - New York Times
But what they have in common is lack of financing (as opposed to the university-sponsored abstract-electronic composers of the early 1960's) and a mad curiosity to overcome the confines of any tone-producing instrument and to tap its hidden potential, whether it's a laptop computer, a sampler, a guitar or a metal bowl.
But Sachiko M. -- perversely and interestingly -- keeps her sampler free of memory, using only its sine-wave test tones.
Instead of a turntable to cut and scratch with, Erik M. had a mini-disk player he manipulated similarly, with a touch screen.

Sachiko M has revolutionized the genre with creating vague harmonies within the use of sine waves, with it occasionally sounding like a very light form of noise, a trait probably best known in relation to popular natives Boris.
Unlike her fellow contemporaries Haco and Sachiko M, Noriko’s style is much more consistent in flow and general presentation.

One of two three-inch mini-discs issued by Sachiko M. (nee Matsubara) in 2000, Detect consists of a single 20-minute piece for sine waves generated from her "empty" sampler.
It tends toward the extremely quiet, virtually disappearing at some moments, but eventually coalesces into a sustained tone made up of two components, a louder high-pitched near-whistle and a softer, lower drone, building to a small crescendo that is abruptly snipped off at its culmination.
Sachiko's ability to construct fascinating, difficult sonic images out of a severely limited palette is consistently impressive.

 Fallt Publishing | %Array | Reviews | Toshimaru Nakamura + Sachiko M | Do
Whatever, we are undoubtedly witnessing a progressive shift from large scale to smaller scale structures; ultra-minimal in realisation, but far from ultra-minimal in impact.
On 'Do', Nakamura + Sachiko M take this interest to new heights.
Coupling Nakamura's 'no-input mixing board' - an input/output, self-referencing loop whose conceptual elegance is outstanding before it has even generated a sound - with Sachiko M's 'sampler with sine wave', a sampler utilising nothing more than its own in-built test tones, the three compositions that result on 'Do' are nothing short of stunning.

 The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai | San Francisco Film Festival
A riotous amalgam of political satire, apocalyptic comedy and steamy erotica, The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai is an insanely entertaining example of the Japanese pink film (pinku eiga) genre, a popular form of erotic softcore cinema.
Sachiko Hanai (Emi Kuroda) is an escort who specializes in teacher-student scenarios (the film's delightfully apposite original title is Horny Home Tutor: Teacher's Love Juice).
Sachiko discovers odd psychic abilities and begins imagining various theories of the universe and multivalent philosophical speculations, all to the throb of techno.

 Debris: Reviews, Discography, Audio Clips, and more ||| Music.com
On the first piece, simply titled "Sine Wave Solo 3," she, as usual, restricts herself to a sampler devoid of samples, feeding only off of the factory-installed test tones and various other glitches she has discovered.
The instrument of choice for the remaining piece, "Half-Moon," is a mere contact mic, which -- as nearly as the listener can tell -- is abused in countless ways on varying surfaces, creating a mass of crackling, thudding noises in a miniaturist version, perhaps, of Stockhausen's Mikrophonie.
Sachiko, by this time, had staked out a Spartan territory on her own; apart from supplying abstract color to bands like Ground-Zero and Hoahio, she was showing how this music -- at once delicate and powerful -- could stand unsupported and strong.

Hard to resist supplying a scenario for a disc which is so resolutely abstract.
Sachiko M plays what she calls "free memory" sampler: when the instrument starts up, all it has in memory is a sine wave, a test tone, a pure frequency.

Sachiko doesn't need me to defend her, but I guess I will anyway.
He has been the only one outside of the Japanese clique to highlight/record Sachiko M in any set-up other than solo (since he seems to view soloing as some kind of wanking, we'll forget about that) during the last 2 years.
Otomo did give Sachiko her start in the experimental music world, but that was a long time ago, and it seems almost irrelevant in light of what she's done since Ground Zero broke up.
