Largely agreed - while the time I saw him a few years ago featured some
stage dynamics owing to his abusing a device that looked like a foot
measuring device festooned with contact mics and processors, he largely
just sat there and futzed around on his Powerbook.  Yee-hah.  Unless the
powerful need to see Masami in the flesh is just too overpowering, you'd be
better advised to just blast his CDs at home while watching B&D porn.
