This paper proposes a collected type music player for listening to music which is "in season". Recently, spread of digital audio players and music delivering services on the market makes user enjoy listening to his collection of music in PC. On the other hand, he must have a potential desire of listening to music which is "in season". The way of listening to music which is "in season" is not the one of object-oriented or passive style for listening to clearly targeted music or recommended music played on radio. It is namely the middle of both. We think the proposed style is natural for listening to music. However, current music players on PC focus on listening to music in object-oriented or passive way, so it has been difficult to listen to music which is "in season". We developed a music player using a fish preserve -IKESU- metaphor for listening to music which is "in season". Features of it are; 1) IKESU : Play list in album unit, 2) Opening IKESU : Shuffle function for music which have not been listened to, 3) Feeding : Gathering music and adjusting amount and category of them. We found that the proposed interface can gather music which is "in season" in an easy way.
