Sound Archives of Japanese Art is a project that aims to collect those often inaccessible sound activities of the past and make them more accessible for consultation.

The project also offers opportunities to reproduce or re-enact soundpieces from the past, either by the artist themselves or our supporters, and present them in multiple forms, ranging from vinyl records to events and exhibitions. The project is devoted to building the foundations needed to examine the meanings of sound in Japanese art, as well as facilitating the cultivation of its potentials.
