Mutsumi’s practice is at the junction of three areas: natural environment, sound and human-computer interaction. Mutsumi investigate methods for creation focusing on soundscape composition for narrative environment or specific site with extending high technology.

Before the beginning of modern science, how was “sound” captured? In the process of exploring, Mutsumi met an ancient Indian philosophical structure Nada Yoga. The foundation of the theoretical and practical elements of Nada Yoga is based on the premise that “everything including all the universe and human beings is made up of vibration of sound called Nada”. This concept means to emphasize sound energy the most than substances and particles that make up the universe. Nada Yoga is also a method of reverence and reaction to sound and is considered as a potential medium to promote deep integration with the inner and outer universe.

Recently, Mutsumi is doing audio visual live performance which designs visual information such as space and experience from analysis of sound. Discover and visualize sensory and spiritual nature of sounds and words, lead to living things and inanimate objects and the events they bring, and witness it with experiences.

To listen to the voices of nature is to listen to our original inspirations. Our bodies are nature. So, listening to nature is to listen to ourselves and recognizing that we are a part of nature. To regain all of those things… Mutsumi thinks, is a huge task for contemporary art and music.
