When I was a child, I could not play any musical instruments at all, and always playing video games. I learnt to be able to sound the sound if the computer was used though I was not able to play musical instruments. At that time, the synthesizer equipped with the sequencer began to spread comparatively at a low price. I thought that I did not have to have a hard time and to train musical instruments. Because the expression of music was possible if I was able to program it. The idea might have been a manifestation of the inferiority complex that I can not play any instruments.

I listened to Chick Corea's performance at the age of 18 and received the big impact. I wanted to be able to play an instrument. I began to learn the drum first. After college I began to learn keyboard. However, my keyboard skill did not advance as I had been wishing. My interest has shifted to bass. After graduation I began to learn bass.

I am playing jazz in Osaka, Kobe, and Kyoto now. I am performing both the piano and basses. And I compose for the video work.

Is what I say understood?
I'm sorry my English ..unskilled...
