Unhappy Max Matsuura leaves Avex

Somewhat Ayu-related, but Max Matsuura from Avex will be resigning. It's not entirely clear, but from what I could gather from an auto-translation from Yomiuri, he's leaving because of some management issues.

Not entirely sure. I tried translating the article from Sanspo, and it seems that he left because of a difference of a management view. He's supposed to soon establish Avex DI DI (present Avex) in April, and he'll open an import wholesale business for CDs. Not sure if this is correct, but I think he was supposed to be inaugurated as the company vice president on October 1.

I assume that someone else would take his place shortly, but whether that affects her career (along with others like Namie, DAI, etc) drastically or not is unknown. I just hope they'll manage with his absense

from what I've read on that article, it is possible that ELT, ayu etc will all move out of avex trax to follow him...

Hopefully this would give ayu a chance to produce herself. Several other artists do it, I don't know why she couldn't.

Maybe this is a dumb question... But what exactly is a producer?? Here in America the term "music producer" seems to be used as Composer/Mixer and stuff... What exactly does Max do, and what is so important about him?

I remeber a while ago i read a quote from max matsuura himself saying that Ayu was pratically producing herself and that she was at the level which she could be called a producer,, or something to that effect, can't remember which article though sorry. Also ayu composed M and evolution etc. and I read somwhere that she plays piano. And she's on her 7th album already so she must have leart something along the way!
