About me

I was interested in music as a research subject when I was impressed by attending a lecture on music information processing at the undergraduate. Although we have grammar in the language we speak, we research to aim at extracting such the grammar from music.

My hobbies: DTM (composing) and band (Vocal & Guitar).

I have two lizards. They are so cute.
