As he majored in painting, he begins to actively play in bands and do multiple recordings on cassette MTRs. In 1996, he made his solo debut with the single “bonjour” on a one man multiple recording session from “M.O.O.D/donut”, the 7 inch label run by MOODMAN. He later released solo works from numerous domestic compilations such as TRANSONIC, Daisy World, etc. He also participated as a guitarist in different units such as GPP and Pacific 231.
In 2000 he composed music for the Nintendo video game "Doshin the GIANT" and in 2004 for the David Fenster's movie "Trona". In 2001, he received an enthusiastic offer from Alec Empire who caught a whif of “bonjour” and released his first full album, “GENNY HANIVER” from his British label, Geist. He is known for his guitar focused rhythm that is, at the same time, sensitive, smooth and paradisical. Also known for his unique soundscape, using his home recording environment at the fullest, this uncategorizable album with a mix of techno, electronica and somewhat ambient music was hailed by the European press.
In 2005, he then went on to join David Sylvian’s remix album “Blemish Remixes”. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
