Satoru Wono was born in Japan in 1964 and lives today in Tokyo. Composer, producer, DJ, writer and critic, he is Assistant Professor at Tama University in Tokyo. He is also the author of a number of important books on music and technology. It suffices to consider the quantity and diversity of works that Satoru Wono has composed or produced in order to be aware of just exactly what he has been able to develop in such directions that, to our occidental eyes, may appear contradictory. His strength resides in his capacity to compose pieces of contemporary music, to be a renowned producer of pop, to work as a music promoter while attempting to preserve an atypical approach and the personal reflection that is necessary for musical experimentation. A member of the Japanese Max/MSP community Commu (together with Yuko Nexus6 for whom he produced her second album Neko san Kill! Kill!), his connections with the Japanese experimental music scene are numerous. Satoru Wono loves to recycle and transfer onto his own works certain sound materials that are usually used within other forms of music. While Satoru Wono's treatment of microscopic sounds is precise and exacting, his pieces playfully draw out something of the extremely (re)creative. His mode of composition can certainly be seen as a counterpoint to current music trends.
