“The people of ancient Greece did not even have different words for “art” and “technology.” They used only one word, ART to express both meanings. Both artists and technicians were regarded as expressing the same set of aesthetic skills.”
– Ikutaro Kakehashi,
(I Believe in Music, 2002)
Ikutaro Kakehashi is an industry pioneer whose innovative vision and philosophy are legendary. The founder of Ace Tone always hoped a generation of “New Artisans” would eventually make Artware an everyday reality. Artware is an extraordinary quality we only attach to special musical instruments and sound-making devices. True Artware rewards its user by supporting their experience of flow – a deeply pleasurable, timeless state of being – like riding an unstoppable wave of creative ideas and actions. Ikutaro Kakehashi believed the highest aspirations of technological artisans should put Artware into the hands of anyone who wants to experience the joy of creativity.
The Kakehashi Family is proud to announce the relaunch of Ace Tone to continue the mission of Ikutaro Kakehashi, and bring more Artware into the world.
