Toshi Tsuchitori was born in Kagawa prefecture of Japan in 1950 and began performing on Japanese traditional drums at an early age. Since the 1970s he has performed internationally with specialists in free improvisation such as Milford Graves, Steve Lacy, Derek Baily and others.

He began working with Peter Brook’s theatre group in 1976, and has since created the music for productions including Ubu, The Conference of the Birds, L’Os, The Mahabharata, The Tempest, The Tragedy of Hamlet and Tierno Bokar. He has studied traditional music from all over the world and for over a decade has been sesearching the earliest strata of Japanese music and presenting the results as musical performances. He has released a series of three recordings of prehistoric Japanese sounds entitled Dotaku, Sanukaito and Jomonko.

He has written two books: an autobiography, Spiral Arms, and a study of the music of prehistoric Japan, The Sounds of Jomon. --- grotowski-institute.art.pl
