I never concerned myself with just composing good music.
Rather, I always concentrated on producing good films through my music.
I believe composing film music is very much like making film itself.
Making film with sounds and melodies.

Film music cannot exist without films.
I've collected film music pieces and made them into a CD here.
I would be glad if you could recall each scene with each piece of music.
I would be even happier if you felt like watching the film again.

I will keep on producing more films . . . and music.
