CV


Demo Reel

He plays ambient, electric sounds. His method makes the sounds he created into numeric to generate visuals by FFT analysis.
The programs created by this method don’t project author’s intended visuals but accidental phenomenon.
Treating sounds as information or media and make it into visuals is his sound & visual live concept. Therefore every time he plays different sounds, the program results different visuals. Audience will experience irreproducible performance.
