Japan Association of Composers for Sumo Hearing Arts (JACSHA) is an association of composers who attempt to create new traditions of performing arts by “listening” to sumo and studying various cultures and practices associated with it. 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. Their works have been presented in various festivals and institutions including Saitama Triennale 2016 and Water and Land Niigata Art Festival 2018. Resident Artist at Kinosaki International Arts Center in 2018.
