Symphony Ihatov is created by composer Isao Tomita, who is known as one of the pioneers of electronic music in Japan. It is based on the poem of Ideal Town written by celebrated Japanese author Kenji Miyazawa. Tomita combined the voice of Hatsune Miku, a humanoid persona, which is also a symbolic element of contemporary Japanese pop culture, with the star video of the astronomy artist Kagaya. It will open a new and magnificent fantasy to the audience.
The world premier concert of Symphony IHATOV was held in Tokyo, and Columbia Records released Isao Tomita’s Symphony IHATOV, World Premier Live Recording. The tour started in Aug. 2013 from Iwate-Ken Hanamaki-Shi (Miyazawa’s hometown), Tokyo and Osaka to Nagoya and was successful.
Since Tomita spent his early childhood in Beijing and Qingdao, he will perform the international premiere in Beijing in May 2015. The most famous vocaloid character Hatsune Miku will perform with a hundred-member chorus from Miyazawa’s hometown and the symphony orchestra of China’s Central Conservatory of Music. The world-renowned artist Tomita, will bring you a romantic, spectacular, classical and faddish “Ideal Dream”.
