Air date:

On 03/05/12, on A Different Nature, we looked at the Electro-Acoustic and Electronic Music works of Japanese composer Matsuo Ohno.

Born in 1930 in Kanda, Tokyo. Studied sound effects at the Bungaku-za theatre troupe and at NHK, before becoming a freelance sound designer, sound effects creator and electronic composer. Famously, Ono created the electronic sound effects for the "Astro Boy" TV show (1963).

Fascinating stuff! Ohno can almost be seen as the Japanese counterpart to the BBC's Radiophonic Workshop, in that he created the sounds and strange musical cues for the animated Japanese cartoon Atom Boy, better known as Tetsuwan Atomu in Japan, originally created by cartoon legend Osamu Tezuka.
