Since childhood, I have always had a personality that liked to meet people, but at the same time was too sensitive to their physical condition, hardships, illnesses, emotions, and what might happen in the near future, which often left me feeling chronically fatigued.
The dichotomy of my extremely positive and negative personality extremes has always plagued me since I was a child, wondering how I could live with myself. (* Of course, this is not fortune-telling or spiritual, but rather a prediction based on the realization & observation.)
So, from that time in my teens, I started creative activities such as composing, art, and designing from the age of 14 in order to eventually be able to live on my own, even if it is alone, with creative activities.
I was creating the songs because I wanted to be able to work silently by myself to avoid the physical and mental strain of meeting people every time I meet them, a trait I foresee in my future.
I never making music for anyone. I was only creating for my lifetime based on my predictions of the future the musical technological innovations.
However, as I continued to make music, I gradually came to realize that music fans were directly sending me messages and words of gratitude in e-mails and letters in response to the music I was creating for myself from my point of view.
Your all words of appreciation have kept me going, even if I have thought about quitting music making many times because I thought I hated music.
No matter how old I get, I am determined to continue making and releasing music for the rest of my life so that I will never forget my gratitude, humility, and learning for you than worrying about the music consequences.
I will not live by my music to avoid meeting negative people as my past.
From now on, I will live by our music to meet people who are rejoice to be with me.
Thank you for your listening.
