Atau Tanaka is an artist-developer who creates interactive music pieces for concert performance, fixed interactive media, and network. He lives in the U.S., France, and Japan. This transcultural perspective is reflected as his artistic activities move from concert to installation to recorded media, from acoustic to electronic to experimental. Physical interfaces are his instruments, and the network is a natural space for this music. His performances use corporeal gesture to articulate music and sound synthesis and real time image transformation. He has published interactive media works, created installations, and has performed in Europe, North America, and Japan. Apple Computer France sponsors Tanaka as Artistic Ambassador for new technology.
