Personal Quote:

Originally, 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. See more »
