Ensemble Modern & Tokyo Wonder Site Academy is a cooperative project with Ensemble Modern (EM), who has been standing on the front line of contemporary music creation. It is an educational program that EM draws on their thirty years of experience to nurture the next generation of young musicians as well as a laboratory where TWS addresses to create contemporary acoustic space with EM. Now that the border between music and art is disappearing, multi-media expression is also required for contemporary musicians. To meet that sort of need, the academy will invite Asian master artists as tutors to newly open Visual Art and Performing Art Courses, in addition to Instrumental and Composition Courses.
Stepping forward from the theme, "EAST×WEST TOWARDS NEW TRADITIONS", this time (Vol.6) we will focus on the three figures: John Cage, Toshi Ichiyanagi, D.T. Suzuki (Zen philosopher, who gave a great influence on Cage). We will examine the influence by oriental thought and ways of expression on contemporary music descended from occidental art through lessons, lectures and workshops. Setting a goal to represent a new music theater at Vol. 7 scheduled in December, 2013, it is an innovative program to work through multimedia expression collaborating with various artists.
Tokyo Wonder Site is calling for both international and local creators who are planning to undergo cultural study or research based in Tokyo. Please make inquiry to the Embassy or art and cultural institutions of your country regarding the program.
