Since 2000, I have cultivated a deep relationship with the musical culture of Japan. My compositional work since then has been focused on expanding and developing the repertoire of contemporary music for traditional Japanese instruments and creating musical works that explore cross-cultural exchange. My musical works are hybrid musical soundscapes that reflect the age in which we live, an era based not necessarily on globalization, but on partnership based on global cultural interaction. 2000年より、私は日本の音楽文化との深い関係を培ってきました。以来、私は邦楽器による現代曲のレパートリーを増やし、異文化交流の可能性を探る作品を創ることに力を注いできました。私の作風は、ハイブリッドな音風景を基調としています。それは、私たちが生きる“現代”を映し出す鏡なのです。私の意味する“現代”とは、必ずしもグローバリゼーションによる拡張の時代を指しているのではありません。世界の文化が交流し合う中で築き上げられる「調和の時代」なのです。
