Biography

Kazune Koyama is a Netherlands-based musician from Japan who began improvisation with the piano and composition right after he was born. He graduated from Composition & Arrangement Course at AMVOX (Tokyo, Japan) and Jazz Piano Major at Koyo Conservatory (Nagoya, Japan). After his career as a musician and a composer, he started organising online school to create own music with own musical instruments and notation system from scratch without any knowledge and skill in music (Neutral Music Academy) and its simplified workshop (Invent Music), a hands-on lecture on sound (Sound Academy), a workshop to take a walk outdoors while listening to the sounds of the place (Earwalk), based on "Neutral Music Concept" which he proposed and aimed at exploring spontaneous and potential sense of music that human being has. He is also working on algorhithms that non-human generates music in order to embody a new domain of music, such as "Miohata" that produces sound samples from common objects rhythmically while recognising objects on a table, or "Binaryosphere", an audible virtual ecosystem.
