"Develop intuitive judgement and understanding for everything.
Perceive those things which cannot be seen.
Pay attention even to trifles.
Do nothing which is of no use."

The Book of Five Rings, Miyamoto Musashi (trans Victor Harris), 1974 Overlook Press NY p. 49

Dr. Mike Blow is a musician, artist, programmer and electronics engineer, and Professor of Interdisciplinary Arts at the International College of Liberal Arts, Yamanashi Gakuin University, Japan. He has the privilege of teaching and working in music, art and technology, and attempts to find synergies and new experiences between all three disciplines.

Mike has a long-running arts practice and is passionate about taking new music to new audiences, especially large-scale sound art projects for public spaces. He has shown work at major UK venues including the Tate Modern, South Bank Center, Cheltenham Jazz Festival and the Science Museum London. The work is often interactive installations which respond to (or are played by) the audience, weather-driven work, or improvised performance.

Mike's teaching aims to help students see and think in new ways, and become technically proficient in art and music technologies. Inspirations include nature, generative art, self organisation, feedback systems, and multisensory effects.
