Her first work was released by a label in Luxemburg, and was accompanied by live performances in Europe in 2004. Residing in Kyoto, her music has reached outside of Japan, appearing on compilations for labels in France, the US and Canada. In "LushRush", her piano and string melodies are deeply influenced by classical and chamber music from her academic music background. Electronic effects, noise and field recording sounds and her own whispering ephemeral vocals create a cinematic world which gives you a feeling of floating and mystery, as if you were moving between the real and the imaginary. Enjoy her unique and mysterious world in which subtlety and verve, feminine fullness and dignified valiance, yin and yang, sanity and insanity coexist. This is certainly her signature aesthetic.
