Thanks for stopping by!

I'm Hideo, and I'm a grad student at Patrick Savage's Comp Music Lab in Keio University Shonan Fujisawa Campus, Japan where I research the science of human musicality.

My research revolves around exploring musical diversity in India and Japan, differences in cross-cultural musical perception, music information retrieval and more recently, cultural evolution. I am also currently the incoming student representative for the executive council of the Cultural Evolution Society.

I make art, music and interactive visuals as Orchid.

In 2020, during the pandemic, I started a game studio with my friends called WaveCut Studios. We're working on some indie games and other side projects, all related to audio visual art in some way. We also have a very infrequently updated podcast.

I'm involved in various projects as a creative director and software engineer with Placy, a startup in Tokyo that connects your music preferences to bars, cafes and venues you might like in the city.
