Naka­mu­ra and Roisz’s first joint appear­ance took place 2001, as part of the project “My King­dom for a Lul­la­by” (with Mar­tin Siew­ert, Michaela Grill and Christof Kurz­mann). Their duo project AVVA has arisen from their col­lab­o­ra­tion dur­ing the “Feed­back: Order from Noise” UK Tour (sum­mer 2004).

Toshi­maru Naka­mu­ra has been pro­duc­ing elec­tron­ic music on self-named “no-input mix­ing board” after long unhap­py years with the elec­tric gui­tar. The name describes the method of his music. “No” exter­nal sound source is con­nect­ed to “inputs” of the “mix­ing board”. Most­ly an impro­vis­er, occa­sion­al­ly a com­pos­er for dancers, an instru­men­tal­ist for compositions.

Bil­ly Roisz spe­cial­izes in feed­back video and video-sound inter­ac­tion. Using mon­i­tors, cam­eras, video mix­ers and a self­built videosynth for live video gen­er­at­ing — com­put­er and turntable to make music.
