Haruki Murakami fans have probably noticed that the author has an affection for music.

That’s putting it lightly, apparently.

Over the weekend, Murakami announced that his 10,000-plus records will be archived at his alma mater, Waseda University in Tokyo.

(For those less interested in tunes: He’s also donating his archive of written materials and correspondence.)

There isn’t a public timeline for the bestowment, NPR reports, because Murakami still wants to be able to listen to his music, but fans can expect a preview of sorts: He hopes to organize a concert with his collection.
