Composer

The Japan Association of Composers for Sumo Hearing Arts (JACSHA) is an association of composers who practice “sumo hearing arts” in an attempt to create a new form of expression by listening to sumo. Founded in 2008 by three board members – Sachiyo Tsurumi, Makoto Nomura, and Tomoko Momiyama – JACSHA believes that sumo is simultaneously a sacred ritual, an entertainment, a performing art, a sport, and a body of wisdom that reflects the traditional as well as the contemporary culture of Japan. JACSHA has organized various events including “Let’s Sumo Music” (Eko-in), “Sumo Hearing Arts Forum” (Yanaka House), “Sumo Seminar: Sumo and Art” (HAPS), and “Scheming Sumo Hearing Arts” (Asahi Art Square). At Saitama Triennale 2016, they presented the installation “Sumo Hearing Arts Research Station (SHARS)” and the performance “JACSHA Dohyo– -Matsuri in Iwatsuki.”
