#Quote
1My sound and soul called "Silent Hill" to this world. In any case, I think it is destiny that we were supposed to meet each other since it is only myself in this world who can express the sound of this title.
2In the world of creative expression, I do not think there is any border whether it is music or drawings. If I wish to express myself, whether I compose music or draw some pictures, they are in essence the same things - expressions of myself. However, I do not wish to be involved with some easy or cheap collaboration such as a game or a movie made just for the sake of "combining music and picture". Although it has not been materialized yet, I would like to do some sort of combination in the future.
3Silent Hill 2 was our favorites because that title had something other titles didn't have at the time, and this had our pure original sense or something even more than just a horror title, not just a bunch of monsters you have to fight, but with more complex scenarios you have to deal with. Action wise, perhaps it wasn't that satisfactory, but overall, that was our favorites.
4There are sound creation tools in every environment, wherever I exist. This is not limited to my workplace. My kitchen is included as well. Thus, I don't go through the creation process like an artist where he takes a deep breath and place his fingers on the piano keyboard. "Create music whenever I want to" -- this is my style.
5Originally, I was planning to become a molding artist, not a musician. As for me, there are not any differences between music and art as it is the same means of expression. As for my current self, creating music is what I am. Thus, I do not regard myself as a "music creator." The first song I created was when I was in punk rock music group in high school.
