He has performed with Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra, Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, Kansai Philharmonic Orchestra, Gunma Symphony Orchestra, and FILARMONICA BRASOV. 
He studied with Jean-Marc Luisada, Katsuko Kaneko, and Tomoaki Yoshida. He graduated from the University of Tokyo’s Graduate School of Information Science and Technology in March 2020, and received the University of Tokyo President’s Award. Currently, in addition to performing concerts in Japan and abroad, he also writes, arranges, and performs his own music under the name of “Cateen” on YouTube, with over 1,000,000 subscribers and 100 million views (as of June 2022).
He has been engaged in research on music information processing at the Institute for Research and Coordination in Acoustics/Music (IRCAM) for six months since September 2018, and gave recitals in Paris, Vienna, Poland, and elsewhere to great acclaim.
