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.
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.
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
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
- a worldwide Web store for Japanese & Japan-related electronic music;
- links to music history, academic articles & electronic music research data;
