オーストラリア シドニー


時間がある時は何してますか?What do you do in your free time?


In my free time, I like to make music and play the piano. Over the years in Sydney, I played with a couple of bands and wrote some music for a couple of amateur projects. After a year in Japan, I got invited to work on some mixed media projects. On these projects, I worked with different kinds of artists and performers (I.e. photographers, projection mapping artists, poets, dancers and other musicians). For most projects, we would create a show around a theme. Other projects have been gallery exhibitions.

日本に来て驚いたことは?What has surprised you since you came to Japan?


When I first came to Japan on a trip, I was amazed at how big and stylish the cities were. My sister, who comes to Japan a lot, has always talked fondly about it. After meeting my wife, I went to Japan for the first time: I came over to meet her parents for the first time.

日本でお気に入りの場所は?Favorite place in Japan?


A cool thing about the cities in Japan is that they have a lot of places to go to by yourself. Some people might think it’s a bit boring or antisocial, but I love the quiet and low key nature of these places. And actually they can be more social than big clubs and festivals.
Don’t get me wrong, I love to hang out with friends and go to Japanese festivals. It’s just something that you don’t really get in Sydney: Places like music bars and music cafes just don’t exist in Australia. One of my favourite quiet places is a whiskey bar that my friend took me to in Tachikawa, west Tokyo.

日本でのお気に入りの思い出は?Favorite memory in Japan?

日本でかなりたくさんの友達ができて、彼らと一緒に出かけるのを楽しんでいるよ。あと、日本の美術館が大好きで、機会がありさえすれば行っているよ。僕が行った中で一番印象に残っている展示会の一つが外苑前にあるワタリウム美術館だよ。そこで、坂本龍一さんの新しいアルバム Asyncの制作に使われた芸術空間を見たんだ。

I’ve made quite a few friends over here and have had a lot of fun hanging out with them. I love the museums here and try to go to them when I get the chance. One of the more memorable exhibitions I went to was the Watarium museum in Gaienmae. Here I saw a couple of installations for Ryuichi Sakamoto’s new album Async.
