TATSURU ARAI - (1981) 2003-2009 Bachelor and Diploma studies in composition with Akira Nishimura, Toshio Hosokawa and Sunao Isaji at Tokyo College of Music. 2007 in composition-class with Bernhard Lang at Implus in Graz. 2009-2013 MA-studies Compostion, Computer-programming and Multimedia-art with Wolfgang Heiniger at the Academy of Music "hanns Eisler" Berlin. Opera "Vitruvian" was performed Berlin und London that innovativ contemporary Opera, that to integrate from classical Music to new Technology. His main artistic Thema is to integrate from classical compositions new technology, as "TRANS-AGES MUSIC", and to present the fundamental physical nature of the universe in the form of perceptional experiences, that could say aesthetics of "geometric structure".

The human perception of sound, a physical phenomenon, influences human beings and the "Geometric structure" is a fundamental pillar that allows us to understand the true nature of the universe. Creating a way to experience even a part of the nature of the universe through sound.

From 2016 he is composing Hyper Serial Music that will add innovation to the principle of Serialism three-point: "structural", "complex" and "noisy". Hyper-Serial-Music is the algorithm music generated by state-of-the-art technology such as Artificial Intelligence than by native human intelligence only. He is performing this work in over 60 cities.

He worked and performed at international Art/Music Festival/, Kinetica Art Festival (London UK), Tunisia Fashion week (Tunis Tunisia), Sajeta - Art & Music Festival (Slovenia), B-Seite Festival (Mannheim Germany), Flow Festival (Helsinki Finland) Signal Festival (Cagliari Italy), intermediale Festival (Legnica Poland), CTM Transmediale festival (Berlin Germany), Klankvorm (Rotterdam Netherlands), MADATAC Festival (Madrid Spain), MAteraINtermedia festival (Netherlands), Gogbot Festival (Enschend Netherlands), (Matera Italy), Sonic Acts fetival (Amsterdam), Generate!_lab Festival (Tübingen Germany), ACT Festival (Gwanju South Korea), H.C.

The principle of our ecosystem was born from the nuclear fusion energy of the sun. At the beginning of the earth's birth, atmosphere contained a lot of carbon dioxide and nitrogen and was high Tempurature.After that, over hundreds of millions of years, earth's surface cooled, and the water vapor turned into rain and fell on the earth's surface, forming the sea. About 4 billion years ago, plants were born in the sea.

Long after that, our human civilization formed urban. There are several papers, through NASA's observation that plants on Earth are increasing as plants that require carbon dioxide absorb carbon dioxide emitted by humans. Here we can find principles and tips for how Urban city and ecosystems can coexist.

The wild flowers that coexist in the Urban are part of the history of the ecosystem born from the nuclear fusion energy of the sun, and may be the "face of the universe."Climate mitigation from vegetation biophysical feedbacks during the past three decades

Sound and Visual performance "Thermo-ton" is the 4th chapter of Hyper Serial Music. This work expands on the history of serialism - an important 20th century method of music composition used by Arnold Schönberg, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Pierre Boulez, among others - by incorporating new technologies such as artificial intelligence and new approaches.

In the history of music technology, Hyper-Serial-Music is innovating the principle of Serialism three-point: "structural", "complex" and "noisy". Spanning from 1728 different noise patterns, these sounds are on the limits of human auditory perception.
Developing and expanding the expression of Hyper Serial Music from past works (Arkhitek-ton [2016-17], Matters-ton [2017-18], Quantum-ton [2018-19]), in this new work titled "Thermo-ton", the composer scrutinizes the dynamics of energy, from heat to cold, translating it to sound and video, using algorithms.

The contrast between the imagery texture and context mixed with the various sounds structures, such as Hyper Serial Music, A.I. Music and classical music composed by myself, creates the maximum dramaturgy of this performance.
