Label and Platform

Intervall-audio brings you cutting-edge German and Japanese electronic music from the rich music scenes in Düsseldorf and Tokyo, featuring artist biographies with preview MP3s, free downloadable MP3 netlabel releases, an extensive link section, as well as a CD Web shop for Japanese electronic music import CDs.

Electronic Music

Electronica, IDM, techno, house, click house, minimal, electro-acoustic, folktronica, experimental, Japanese Onkyokei (音響系), glitch, chill out, improvisation, avant-garde, noise, post-techno, post-minimal, silence and
many other styles & subgenres — now we call them all just 'electronic music'.


Intervall-audio is a network, an on-going process and an endeavour to communicate in several mindsets, to cross the distance between places, to network over space and time, and to positively identify and promote the likeness and dissimilitude of two exciting music scenes as they develop.

Why Tokyo?

Tokyo is a living reality — a melting pot of cultures, styles and influences, hosting a vivid and highly sophisticated electronic music scene. Japan has many faces beyond YMO, Ken Ishii, Fumiya Tanaka, Takemura Nobukazu, DJ Krush, Denki Groove or Perfume; and some of them are less known abroad. As a whole, electronic music in Tokyo is just as diverse, individualistic and unique as the people who make it.

Why Dusseldorf?

Duesseldorf has maintained an image of good electronic music since the 1970s: kraut, electro, house, techno, minimal, electronica, etc. Duesseldorf has a lot to offer in art and electronic music: Kraftwerk, Neu!, Der Plan, DAF, Kreidler, Mouse on Mars, etc. There are famous names and as many less well known names. Intervall-audio will introduce you to some of these people.


In music theory, an interval[l] is the difference in pitch between two notes. In elementary algebra, it is a set that contains every real number between two specified numbers. In geography, it denotes the distance or space between two places. In time, it is the duration between two events or occurrence of similar events. And in Japanese music, ma (間) is a term used to describe a period of silence (e.g., the "intervals" or "spaces" between hits on the drum in taiko music), periods that are critical to adding drama, excitement and tension.


Intervall-audio centres on electronic music in Japan and Germany, but you will also find a range of high-quality links to:

- the featured artists' homepages, their music and concerts;

- IA releases, MP3 netlabel releases and other music-related sites;

- a worldwide Web store for Japanese & Japan-related electronic music;

- links to music history, academic articles & electronic music research data;

- links to Japanese language sites, stuff for reading, Japan guides & maps, etc.
