Personal Quote:

In 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"... See more »
