Reaching his teens, he formed an interest in music, listening to the progressive rock of the seventies, especially drawn to groups such as Soft Machine, Henry Cow, and Tangerine Dream. Having studied piano from a young age, he continued his education in a music academy, and commenced his career in 1984 as a professional keyboardist. Artists he has since collaborated with now count over 100. Hosomi's involvement with the legendary Elephant Kashimashi extended to recording sessions, arranging their songs for many years and being hired to play as part of their live performances. It was a significant contribution but never as an official member. Hosomi has at the same time continued to pursue his own modes of expression, with a vision to develop the progressive rock idea of "music to stimulate imagery." Meanwhile, working with a variety of digital musical instruments and computer led him to new methods of working, which led to the formation of Maju, the Japanese word for cocoon. Hosomi continues to actively collaborate with various artists, notably with Akino Arai and Tujiko Noriko. Most recently, he joined Arai's band for her European tour to Paris and Berlin.
On the electronic music front, Hosomi participated in Christophe Charles's Laptop Orchestra. Recently, Hosomi remixed tracks of KiLA for an all-remixes CD of the Irish band's music, released in Japan. Hosomi has also taken on a number of music production projects for television commercials. 3. A Polish underground hip-hop artist.
