The Association for International Exchange of Japanese Music
The Japanese Music Multimedia Database

The Association for International Exchange of Japanese Music was established in 1988 to make Japanese traditional music, classical pieces to modern compositions, accessible to international music lovers all over the world. As one of its activities, the association created "the Japanese Music Multimedia Database", which contains information on approximately 4,600 pieces of Japan's traditional music for koto, shamisen or shakuhachi. It is accessible through the website of the association.
This database is unique in its coverage of wide range of Japan's traditional music and there are no other database of this kind. It is now used by those engaged in research, education, performance of traditional music, as well as those who love Japan's traditional music. HP URL

CD Recording for propaganda the NHK Electronic Music production technique.

We have produced the seventh and eighth volumes of CD Series for NHK Electronic Music Research, "Oto no Ongen wo Motomete (in Search of Original Sources of Sound)." Because many of the CD works produces so far contain music of indeterminacy using an analog technique, it is impossible to reproduce them.The analog technique was ended up to this point and transferred to a digital synthesizer technique thereafter. The work in the analog days attracted many people. During the 2009 music festival, "Summer in Tokyo" an electronic music concert was held by using this CD Series as materials. On the other hand, the CD Series have been distributed to music research rooms of many universities such as Tokyo University of the Arts and Osaka University of Arts in addition to NHK and used as research materials. We have been gradually accomplishing the objective of the production. We will study on the production of the CD Series in English ,aiming to introduce them to other countries in the future.
