    International Colloquium France-Japan

At the opening of the Meiji era in the late nineteenth century, the training of Japanese musicians was subjected to cultural and political constraints in Western countries. Given a choice between European education, dominated by French and German schools, or teaching influenced by the US, the Japanese musician has sometimes been formed at the peril of their own cultural identity. However, Japanese artists seem to have preserved the ontology of their music while having assimilated some features of Western cultures. Conversely, early in the twentieth century European musicians found in Japanese culture sources of inspiration that could regenerate a musical discourse that seemed to wither between dogmatic struggles and exhaustion of their society. The relationships between Japanese musicians and France in this context are the focus of these first days of studies.
A second conference will be held at the Kunitachi College of Music, on May 2017.

Silence, instant, recurrence

I updated my piece commissioned by Yuiko Yasuda, the pianist created this piece in Kyoto. Listen to “Silence, instant recurrence” with commentary !

“Silence, instant, recurrence” for piano is a ricercar composed under consideration of the eternal return. So, “The die is cast” or “God does not play dice”?

In Buddhist thought, it is said that the dead child before his parents will be brought to the riverbank “Sai”. “Sai” means the dice in Japanese. This child could enter the Buddha paradise after he fulfilled raising a round cairn. But the devil comes to destroy the tower each time the child will complete his work, and his efforts will not be rewarded forever. Also in Greek mythology, one is near episode. As Zeus’s eternal punishment, Sisyphus was forced to keep pushing a rock in the mountain Tartarus. When arriving to the summit, the rock falls to roll and this penance is repeated in eons.

On the other hand, in the thermodynamic point of view, a similar situation is not the same as another, even if it appears, because the universe continue to broadcast and diversify its state by the law of entropy. Furthermore, in chaos theory, a simple regularity seems sometimes very difficult to predict a result, and in quantum theory, the uncertainty principle states that the position and moment of the particles in the microscopic area cannot both be measured, exactly.

Caprice

for viola and electronics (2012)

World Premier at the Atelier concert of Cursus 1 IRCAM : Noémie Bialobroda (viola) Keita Matsumiya (electronic) Mikhail Malt (technic assistant)

When I write a piece for solo instrument or small size of chamber music, I always start by looking for the “nature” of each instrument. Reading of the treaties of instrumentation, reading scores, and exchanges with musicians involved in the construction of my work. What inspired me this time is the 24 Caprices of Paganini. As Brahms and Schumann, I am interested in his musical figures, body gestures of the musician and his instrument research. In relation to music perception, the proportions of envelopes or non-linear linear existed in various musical events have been particularly involved in the development of this study. As compositional technics, OpenMusic allowed me to generate certain proportions of envelope curve of three dimensions. This visualization has allowed me to create musical figures in the score and the electronics in real time and offline.

ASURA – Dairakudakan

I had a chance to compose a series of electroacoustic music for stage at the spectacle of “ASURA” directed by Naomi Muku in Butoh dance company, Dairakudakan at Kochu-ten. The dancers continued to develop and refine the organization of all scenes under the direction of Muku and supervising of Akaji Maro until the first performance day, and I tried to rearrange the music following the stage production, and the result has become a very satisfactory execution. Every ten days of shows are complete crowd of spectators, and I am pleased to have developed my musical ideas for stage working with such a wonderful group of dancers. Thank you!
