ジャズフルーティスト、マルチ楽器奏者、作曲家

首都圏を中心に音楽活動をしていたが、自然と共生する生活に惹かれ、九州に移住。

 子供の頃、バディ・メリルの多重録音によるラテン音楽、フォーレ、イベール等のフランス近現代クラシック音楽、ソニー・クラーク、ホレス・シルバー等のハードバップジャズの虜になる。これらが音楽人生の原点。

 その後、より多様なジャンルの音楽に触れるようになり、様々な楽器と作編曲、多重録音、音響技術を覚え始める。また芸術と哲学全般に深い関心を持ち、音楽を絵画や建築物、楽器は絵具や建材と考え、制作するようになる。 

 現在、フルートをメインに様々な楽器を用い、ソロ、ユニット等、ジャズ演奏活動を行っている。


 ジャズが国境を越えて世界的に各々の文化の中で広まったことから、ジャズを生成する何らかの構造とそれによる再構築がおそらく普遍的側面を持ち存在するのだろうと考え、それを”Meta-jazz”と仮説設定、探究している。

※ 註:ジャズの定義は諸説あって、何をもってジャズとするかは大変難しい問題であるが、ジャズを足らしめるものとして「即興作曲、即興演奏」、「スイング感」といった要素はもとより、コアに「ブルース」というものがあるかないかというところで、議論は大きく分かれるであろう。本人の考えとしては「ブルース」といった要素が、少なくともコアにあるものがジャズであって、そうでないものはどちらかというと広義にフュージョンに分類されるといった見方をしている。


Jazz flutist, Multi-instrumentalist & Composer

Although I was engaged in music activities mainly in the metropolitan area, I moved to Kyushu

because I was attracted to living in harmony with nature.

 When I was a child, I was captivated by the Latin music of multi recording by Buddy Merrill,  modern French classical music by Gabriel Fauré, Jacques Ibert and etc. and hard bop jazz by Sonny Clark, Horace Silver and etc. These were the starting points of my music life.

  And then I have experienced the music of more various genres and gradually started to learn musical instruments, composition, arranging, multi recording and acoustic technology. I also has a deep interest in art and philosophy in general. I creat the music, thinking of music as paintings and buildings, musical instruments as paints and building materials.

 Currently, I mainly play the flute and use various instruments to perform jazz.


  As jazz spread across the borders worldwide in each culture, I think that some structure that creates jazz and its reconstruction probably has a universal aspect. I hypothesize it as "Meta-jazz" and explore it.

  Annotation : There are various views of "jazz" definition, it is a very difficult question as to "what is  jazz?"  As elements of establishing " jazz", the elements such as "improvisation" and "feeling of swing" are considered at least. Whether there is "blues" in the central core or not, the discussion would be divided.

I think what has a element such as "blues" at least in the central core, is "jazz". I take the view that something that is not so, is rather classified as "fusion".
