KANSAI UNIVERSITY 3-3-35 Yamate-cho, Suita-shi, Osaka, Japan KANSAI University Japanese Popular Music Archives & Museum Project Objectives KANSAI University Japanese Popular Music Archives & Museum Project was launched in April 2014 to systematically organize Japanese popular music as well as to collect, accumulate, and store visual materials, audio sources, and documents, which had previously been scattered. We intend to study how we can best make the established archives, which are precious cultural resources, available to the public, and, in future, we hope to build on these archives to establish a museum and a research institute for Japanese popular music. Activities We have been working on the establishment of an oral history consisting of interviews with people from the dawn of popular music, who are now growing older, and the digitalization of music footage such as live videos and promotional videos stored on tape media, which is gradually deteriorating in addition to the aging of reproduction equipment. (...) Through these activities, we will explore how we can best establish and run a future museum for Japanese popular music. Contact: pmam@cm.kansai-u.ac.jp

This has also brought into view the creation of a new media ecosystem by socializing technologies such as IoT (Internet of Things) and big data through music. From the perspective of cultural preservation, Kansai University’s Japanese Popular Music Archive Museum Project, for which the author is a representative, is digitizing and creating a database of cultural materials, including music videos from the first half of the 1970s to the present day, based on this ID system. In order to make these materials available to the public and share them, we are aiming to establish a network-type popular music museum that utilizes cutting-edge ITC technology in the Takeshiba District CIP (Contents Innovation Program), which is adjacent to a venue intended for the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. Through these sorts of activities, it is hoped that there will be increasing opportunities for people to encounter Japan’s diverse popular music that transcends national borders and generations.
