On August 28th 2011, we did planning of the sound system and the sound projection at "Toshiro Mayuzumi's All Electronic Music Performance" sponsored by JCMR KYOTO.
We are not a musical engineering group, but we played back Toshiro Mayuzumi's electronic music based on 'Music of New Reference' which was developed from the event we held in the past.
Hopefully we will release the method in some way.

Music is dying. Although academic studies are not a form of art, they have evolved in a way to obtain the ability to explain ongoing events, and also the structures of art work in categories else from music.However, the more one studies music, the more the learner is driven away from the current form of music.
Academic studies should be a supporter of art. However, we need to give thought about what they lack, and also about when they have lost their requirements to be such supporter.We must accomplish this not just by logic, but in a way that anybody can understand…
Recording and reproduction are technologies that are familiar with music.
However, music has not been able to assimilate these technologies ever since their invention.

Music is dying.

However, arguments about the loss of the artistic merit of music are rarely made, and when it comes to "listening" to music, the act is becoming worthless.

Why has this situation come about?
This might be because we are loosing our reference for music.

We have been pursuing this project, which concept has ambitiously been set as The Redefinition of a Reference for Music, arising from these concerns.
