Japanese composer Toshiya Tsunoda (1964) has introduced innovative concepts in the arts of "field recording" and of "collage". His field recordings consist in capturing the sound of inert matter, which sounds like a contradiction until one studies Physics and realizes that everything radiates vibrations. Each object has a "sound": it is just a matter of finding a way to render that sound so that it can be appreciated by the human ear. Tsunoda's music is thus one of minimal subsonic vibrations. It is also one of extremely conscientious cut-up: sonic events are pasted together in a carefully choreographed design. Finally, Tsunoda's music is also poetry, because, far from being a mere scientist collecting specimen, the artist carefully concentrates with his creatures on the lyrical power of the world we inhabit.
