Self-introduction of Yuko SASAMA

 I was born in Tokyo at 1964. I was graduated from Sophia University (Education of Visual and auditory senses, Philosophy) at 1987. I have been playing piano since 4 years old.

Before the aftermath of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, I played improvisational piano with world traditional musicians (India, Africa, Tuva, North American Indian, Japanese traditional music etc.) and created6CD works. But after earthquake and nuclear plants accidents, I could not play music as before. I was agonized very much. What is the music? What is music? I felt to need to study and think deeply.

 From 2011 through 2013, I was a member of Dr.Tadahiko IMADA Laboratory at Hirosaki University graduate school. This Lab. is researching ‘soundscape’ and ‘sound-education’ as philosophy of education. As a result of contemplation, I think ‘Music is relationship to connect inside and outside of the World’. This idea has the background of ‘The Tuning of the World’ by R.Murry Schafer. For five years, I am carrying out workshop of opening our ears to the World.

 From 1th Oct. 2014, I have a group ‘CONNECT’ that has activity purpose to build a network of all fields of arts and techniques, and to connect inside and outside.

 So I just started project with Hideo ARAI (he is a specialist of a body ,Dancer) at a community work place for mild intellectual disability. This project name is ‘Improvised dialogue of relationship of a body and a sound’. We try to make relationship by nonverbal communication and to talk about nonverbal communication (it is very conflict ). Because we feel need to convey the important of nonverbal communication in the next generation.

And more, I have been studying YOGA at the Embassy of INDIA 2009~2011.
