My current Job

I work with artists and musicians to make records in a professional studio environment. In order for the creator's vision and thoughts to be reflected in the music, I take an approach combining an artistic perspective with an acoustic and technological one, and strive every day to bring top-notch works to the world. We produce world-class works, including music for the United Nations and Grammy award-winning music.

How I spent my student life

I worked hard at my studies and assignments, but I think I had a lot of time, freedom, and an open environment in which to pursue what I wanted to do. There's an atmosphere that allows debate, where students can freely discuss questions that cannot be solved through calculations and seem unproductive at first glance, such as design theory, with many people such as seniors and professors, and this contributed greatly to my own foundation.

Message for prospective students

The last line of learning is not just putting things into your head, but being able to apply the knowledge you've acquired in your own fashion. As the school's unusual name shows, it's a rare school where you can study these diametrically-opposed fields of design and engineering, and learn how to bring them together in yourself. Don't unwittingly box yourself in while you're still young and intelligent, lay the foundation for living and enjoying a rock and roll life.
