Yasunori’s Comment

25年以上作家として数々の作品に携わってきましたが、どの作品においても常に新しい試み、かつ個性的で唯一無二の音楽を提供したいという思いでこれまで作曲活動をしてきました。 また、何年経っても色あせることのない音楽、聞いてくださる方の印象に残る作品、というのも自分の中で大きなテーマでした。

Yasunori’s Comment

Although I have taken part as an artist in many projects over the past 25 years, I have always wanted to try something new with each work and compose music that is one of a kind. Along with that, an important theme within my work is creating music that leaves a strong impression and never fades in color no matter how many years pass.

These feelings have stayed with me unchanged since my debut. Together with everyone, I hope to continue creating unique and interesting music.
