Adventure Tale of Professor Alex was commissioned in 2005 by the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force Eastern Army Band. Professor Alex is an imaginary character whose tales of adventure I have set to music.
After studying as an archaeologist for 20 years, Professor Alex finds a mysterious map describing ancient treasures as well as an immortal ("fountain of youth") spring. That's the only the beginning; the entire story is portrayed by the music.
I would rather not tell the entire story and reveal Professor Alex's fate. Please enjoy imagining his adventures and producing Professor Alex's spectacular voyage.
