Biography

Around 1975, I taught myself how to play, in my own way, with the sound devices around me (musical instruments, turntables, tape recorders, furniture or anything). About 1981, I began to compile my work as an album on cassette tape, and loaned it to my friends. In 1986, I bought a synthesizer. From then, rather than creating sound collage work, my improvised playing increased, until around 1990, when my sound work slowed down. In 1994, I began to make DTM (DeskTop Music) with newly bought sequencer software and a PCM sound module for my Mac. I then made about one composition a day. In 1995, I got sound waveform editor software, and slowly changed the way I worked from DTM with MIDI signal to HDR (HardDisk Recording) with sound waveform edit. Around 2000, my old Mac began to frequently crash, so I started working with a friend’s Windows software. This change pushed me to make music totally in PC without using any other music hardware.
