From 2004 after returning to Japan, he started grindcore band SETE STAR SEPT and free jazz band KIYASU ORCHESTRA, and has released numerous works and has performed various tours to countries around the world. From 2012, he is also working as a band of Keiji Haino, a drummer of FUSHITSUSHA. As a solo snare drummer, the countries that have performed in the past span the United States, Canada, Indonesia, Korea, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Mongolia.
His solo works focused on only his snare drum, caressing it with hands or brushes or abusing it with sticks, microphone and foot. Alternating between floor and table...is it music? jazz? noise?
Two tracks recorded during his performance at Space 631 (Shanghai) and Underpass (Beijing) on two nights (20th & 21st Feb 2016 respectively).
