Composer. Born in 1979, Tokyo. Taro is a Japanese-Brazilian based in Saitama Prefecture (Japan). After graduating from Tokyo College of Music with a degree in composition, he received a Master’s degree at the Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences (IAMAS). He is currently attending the doctoral program of the Graduate School of Music at Tokyo University of the Arts. He has been working to reconsider the value of music when seen against the relationship between technology, society, and human beings. His representative works include the “Zombie Music” series which features music played automatically through self-produced machines. His works have been presented in Japan and abroad. In 2019, he was one of the artists representing the Japan Pavilion to create “Cosmo-Eggs” at the 58th Venice Biennale International Art Exhibition. In 2020, at his solo exhibition at Art Front Gallery (Tokyo), he presented a preview of his fanfare plan for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic games. His major awards include the 7th JFC Composition Award, Takahashi Genichiro Prize at the Art Award In the CUBE 2017, KDCC 2018 Incentive Award, and the 10th Creational Tradition Award. For his recent activities, Taro is conducting his research on non-human-directed automated music, which is the subject of his doctoral thesis, and continuing technical trial and error about online music activities with his schoolfellows.
His theme for MATSUDO QOL AWARD is to contemplate about space-time art. Space-time art refers to the arts—which were once called music, fine arts, theater, and so on—that lost their placeness because of gatherings being hosted on online platforms.
