Born in Chiba/Japan, I am a heavily classical trained violinist (on modern and baroque) and a viola player for chamber music, performing and broadcasting on stage and media across the world. After achieving several prizes nationally and internationally in the classical music world with my J.B.Guadagnini1766,I started combining different musical fields into my world.
Now my repertoire ranges are Medieval, Baroque, Classical, Contemporary, Experimental music/theatre,
Performing art, Improvisation, Noise, and Sound art. Since 2018, my sounds structural/compositional work has intensified.
I love stillness and activities. I chose especially music as a tool for that activities, and using this tool to
connect people, space, time and sounds.
Why music? Because it is a fascinating multi tool.
Music is the oldest communication tool for humans, that has been with us from the very beginning.
By this tool, we think we can communicate with the others and change a perspective of the whole existence.By actively dedicated to music, you can learn/discover many things about yourself, human and mysteries
more than you imagine. The most enjoyable mystery for me is seeing shapes and colours when I hear music.
Why do crossing over in music, and fascinated with field sounds?
Because making noise/music means a life form needs to express something with soul, to the others. I want
to understand it. Sounds are vocabularies, and Music is a language, which has various types.
This multi tool is there for all of us, without any boundaries.
I began my musical journey at the age of 8 months with copying violin playing with two chopsticks before I could even walk/talk. At the age of 9, I wrote "I want to master Music".
My first name Chihiro's (智尋) meaning is "searching for wisdom". I am on that journey since.
