Email-Bulletin "METHOD" is a free monthly, being published
by the three Methodicists in Japan, Nakazawa Hideki
(artist), Matsui Shigeru (poet), Miwa Masahiro (composer).
Manifestos of Methodicism:

This issue features The Method Machine for the second
straight month.  The next issue will be back to the usual


"The Method Machine" is a group that realizes Methodicistic
art works through using new physical bodies.  Now the
members are invited on the occasion of its formation.  The
first public performance will be held in October, 2004.

The Specifications for The Method Machine
- The Method Machine is a group of human beings that calls
itself a machine.
- For that reason, the members of The Method Machine must
train their bodies through practice.
- The Method Machine is an independent group having a
cooperative relation to the three Methodicists.
- For that reason, The Method Machine realizes art works by
not only the three Methodicists but also other artists of
all ages and countries.
- The Method Machine is a group specialized for realizing
art works, not for creating them.
- For that reason, The Method Machine does not realize art
works created by its members.

The Oath of The Method Machine
- We will do anything in order to realize Method Art!
- We will practice individually at least 30 minutes a day!
- We will never be absent from the joint practice to be held
2 times a month!

The Method Machine is expected to be a permanent group made
of around a score of people.  Tsurumi Sachiyo (composer) is
president.  Adachi Tomomi (former Methodicist, musician) and
Terasaki Keitaro (composer) are advisers.  The three
Methodicists are the godfathers.  You can read the
prospectus in the previous issue of this bulletin.

has ever explored!
