Hifumi Shimoyama CD

Hifumi Shimoyama CD “Five Chamber Music for tape sounds” Siglo de Luz 1996

Hifumi Shimoyama, his name is  not a very well-known name but enthusiasts of avant-garde music in Japan have heard him through the Oto No Hajimari collection.His sound is desolate and maybe reminescent of his birthplace in east-north district Aomori prefecture as well , same as  Butoh dancer Tatsumi Hijikata. This CD was released by Japan’s private label in 1996. All texts are in English.

Since the 1960s, Shimoyama’s music has been regularly featured on World Music Days festivals across Europe and Asia, and sponsored by the International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM). Shimoyama  is the founder of GROUP 20.5, the internationally recognized group of Japanese avant-garde composers.
