 What has influenced your work as a musician and visual artist?

 Kenji: I was classically trained in Violin since I was 6 years old. I began producing music in high school, performing with orchestras, while also becoming interested in Computer graphics, animation, and film production. I went to 5 years of film school in Toronto, and Boulder Colorado.

During that time, I developed my skills in filmmaking, as well as music composition, as I was composing the music for the films of the class. It was a remarkable learning experience.During University in the90's, I really got into rave culture that was exploding in the underground, thus influencing me in electronic music.
