Pianist and artist living in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In 1991, she was the first Japanese pianist to win the International Gaudeamus Musicians’ Concours and is a recipient of the Muramatsu Prize. Every year, she has been invited as a soloist to premier new works by Ensemble Modern, Ensemble Intercontemporain, London Sinfonitta, Royal Concertgebouw and other orchestras. In recent years, she has presented pieces in the performing arts and installations that lie outside conventional norms. She has shown a persistent interest in the spaces where music is performed and how the music and space is perceived by the people (performers and audience) in those spaces. In 2007, she established the Mukaiyama Foundation in the Netherlands and in 2015, Multus in Japan. She is also active as a producer. Her originality as a collaborator is expressed not only in music, but in a wide range of other fields as well, such as art, architecture, fashion, dance and photography.

Since the mid-1980s, he has worked on numerous film and television projects in lighting and set design, and has won renown for his artistic perspective and technical expertise. In recent years, he has expanded his skill-set to include digital post-production, further developing the “magic” he nurtured as a cinematographer. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0115956/
