Name of creator
Michio Mamiya was born in Asahikawa, Hokkaido, the northernmost island of Japan, on 29 June 1929. He was taught by both Hiroshi Tamura in piano and Tomojioro Ikenouchi in composition. A particular interest of his has been Japanese folk music. Thoroughly familiar with both European music as well as traditional Japanese music, he has tried to synthesize these forms of music in his compositions. In 1980, Mamiya wrote a letter in response to Anne Brydon, a fourth year undergraduate music student, detailing the personal and intellectual influences of his music.
