I am an improvisational musician using computers, a participant in a network of Japanese musicians, and I have organised projects. My project “Invisible Objects”, utilizing two Macintosh Powerbooks, is a challenge to myself to create real-time sound, play improvised music, in real-time interaction with the computer, pushing the use of technology in a live situation to the limit. All composition, performance and restructure is by myself. Other projects in which I have been involved are the “Realtime conducting system” which I created and developed, using Macintosh Ethertalk and Internet, and “OTOMO Yoshihide”, working together with Sampling Virus.
