Joji Yuasa (born in Koriyama in 1929) is a composer and member of the Jikken Kobo. After studying medicine, Yuasa turned towards music and studied composition at the Experimental Workshop in Tokyo (1951-1957). The most important Japanese composer of his generation after Takemitsu, Yuasa played a crucial role in the development of electro-acoustic music of his country throughout the 1950s, and remains one of the most influential members of the experimental Japanese movement to the present day.
