Premiere of the new performance by Tatsuru Arai - Quantum-ton

Sound Visual performance QUANTUM-TON is the 3rd chapter of his Hyper Serial Music project/series. The project expands on the history of serialism – an important 20th century method of music composition used by Arnold Schönberg, Karheinz Stockhausen and Pierre Boulez, among others – by incorporating new technologies and new perspectives, including artificial intelligence. In the history of music technology, Hyper-Serial-Music will add three points of innovation to the principle of Serialism : "structural", "complex" and "noisy".These sounds are on the boundaries of human auditory perception and cognition.

The evolution from past works of the series : In this work Tatsuru developed and evolved into more complex and higher quality result, unfolding the relation between Sound and Quantum energy as in a fictional Science. And the relation itself constructs the Dramaturgy. By means of algorithmic simulation, principles designing the audiovisual substance are correlated directly on showing the physical side of Universe through human perception.

Artist bio :

2003-2009 : Bachelor and Diplom studies in composition with Akira Nishimura, Toshio Hosokawa and Sunao Isaji at Tokyo college of Music.
2007 : Composition class with Bernhard Lang at Implus in Graz.
2009-2013 : MA-studies Compostion, Computer-programming and Multimedia-art with Wolfgang Heiniger at the Academy of Music "hanns Eisler" Berlin.
His works are then performed in over 40 cities in Europa, and Argentina,  Mexico, Colombia, Tunisia, Japan, ... His opera Vitruvian was performed in Berlin and London as an innovative contemporary Opera, that integrates classical Music to new Technology. His main artistic themes is the integration of classical compositions to new technology (as TRANS-AGES MUSIC), and to present the fundamental physical nature of the universe in the form of perceptional experiences, that could be told as aesthetics of “geometric structure”.
According to his words, the human perception of sound, a physical phenomenon, influences human beings and the “geometric structure” is a fundamental pillar that allows us to understand the true nature of the universe. Tatsuru Arai is creating a way to experience parts of the nature of the universe through sound. From 2016 he is composing Hyper Serial Music that will add innovation to the principle of Serialism three points : "structural", "complex" and "noisy". Hyper-Serial-Music is the algorithm music generated by state-of-the-art technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, more than by native human intelligence only. He is performing this work in over 60 cities.
