New Gagaku + Classical Gagaku | Composition & Recordings

Gagaku is a classical music with a history of over 1200 years, not only in Japan but throughout the world.

Although Gagaku is generally performed only as classical Gagaku, I (We)  create new works of Gagaku on a daily basis, not only for concert productions, but also for museums and video productions on an ongoing basis.

I am one of the few musicians in the world who can compose Gagaku music that is not as esoteric as contemporary music and can be heard by the general public.


I have uploaded samples of some of our new gagaku + classical gagaku pieces and videos.

If any of them strike a chord with you, please contact me!

I am available for anything from a simple consultation to a composition request.

Although this music is unique to Japan, it has a wonderful quality that can be transmitted to people all over the world.

We hope you will make use of this music in your own works.
