“to me, the venue where i perform is extremely important to me. and how i perform is definitely influenced by where i am placed. it’s definitely different for me to perform in, say, Shinjuku in Tokyo or near Mount Fuji in the forest. it’s a completely different context. what i believe is that there’s already music where i go, so it’s more like performing with that environment. what feels best for me is when my own music, my own vibration, becomes at harmony with the environment that i’m in. it’s not necessarily that way all the time – i have to perform where i have to perform. but when it’s most right for me is when my feeling and my vibration is connected to the environment that i’m placed in.”
