Tatsuru Arai (1981, Japan) is a Berlin based, Japanese composer who has studied composition under Akira Nishimura, Toshio Hosokawa and Sunao Isaji at Tokyo college of Music. He has also completed MA-studies in composition, computer-programming and multimedia-art with Wolfgang Heiniger at the Academy of Music “Hanns Eisler” Berlin. Tatsuru’s works have been performed all around the globe.
His main artistic theme is to integrate classical compositions with new technology, something he calls “TRANS-AGES MUSIC”. He also aspires to present the human perception of sound, a physical phenomenon that influences human beings. Tatsuru Arai calls this perception “geometric structure” and it is a fundamental pillar that allows the listeners to understand the true nature of the universe and experience it through sound.
