Itaru Yasuda 

(1984) is a Japanese audiovisual artist. Based in Tokyo. Focusing on computational audiovisual composition.

Itaru Yasuda studied Aesthetics and New Media Art at Keio University and IAMAS. Started making music and videos in 2005.

Yasuda first investigated time-based media and graphical modeling at Studio 2 in IAMAS, where he refined his approach to computer-based audiovisual composition.


Representative of a new generation of composers in this field, Yasuda takes algorithmic composition to levels of intricacy that years ago would have required a warehouse full of computer processing. These days, with the help of software like SuperCollider, audiovisual work can reach new levels of expression without the hindrance of hardware or technological boundaries. This might just be a sneak peak into the future.
