Chikage Imai

Chikage Imai was born in Nagoya (Japan) and studied with Akihiko Matsui at Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts and Music. She met Joji Yuasa at Akiyoshidai summer seminar in 2002. Since then he has been her private mentor. After moving to Amsterdam in 2003 she continued to study composition with Wim Henderickx and Fabio Nieder at Conservatorium van Amsterdam supported by Rohm Music Foundation. Her musical activity has been broadened internationally through her chamber ensemble piece Vectorial Projection I - bouncing ball (2006). The piece was performed in Gaudeamus muzikweek and awarded an honorable mention of the 28th Irino Prize for Chamber music. In 2008 Vectorial Projection IV - fireworks (2008) was commissioned by Festival d'Automne á Paris and premiered by Irvine Arditti and Nieuw Ensemble. Simulgenesis for 17 musicians (2009) was written for the 4th International Composition Seminar of the International Ensemble Modern Academy and through the piece she received a commission from Westdeutschen Rundfunks to write a piece for Ensemble Modern. Her music is produced from Muzikproduktion Dabringhaus und Grimm and Ensemble Modern Media. Imai is also engaged into working on cross-media art with visual art, stage design and so on. She is currently an Honorary Research Associate at Royal Holloway University of London.
