Born in Kyoto, he moved to New York in the late 1960s. He is well-known as a Fluxus artist with links to La Monte Young, and has been involved in many performances and sound installations. However, he has released only two recordings (as his solo albums), both hard to find. Finally, a CD reissue of his most important and rarest LP, Lament For Rise And Fall Of The Elephantine Crocodile (Recorded in 1981, issued on India Navigation in 1982).

This CD contains two pieces: track 1 - solo overtone voice (he studied with legendary Indian vocalist Pandit Pran Nath) recorded at performance space 'Dry Pool', with a deep underground echo feeling; track 2 - dense psychedelic drones using bagpipe-like self-made instrument. These wondrous sounds will take you to another, better world!!

TRACKS:
1. Singing (31'07")
2. Bagpipe (33'17")
