Hello my name is Yuichi Onoue.(尾上祐一)
Japanese musical instruments(both handmade & existing) player, Composer , Musical producer & engineer

I play handmade Ribbon Controller and original musical instruments which is named "Kaisatsuko(回擦胡)" - two strings Hurdy-Gurdy like oriental fiddle. Now I'm mainly playing these two handmade instruments at my live performance. And I also have played them with various musical instrument players. You can check my performance from here.

Side by side, I produce and record my original songs by means of many instruments and multi-track recorder. And I have tried some musical computer programmings which are not only conventional one , but also algorhythm composition(usuing MAX etc) and digital signal processing. I wander about hi-tech to low-tech, analog to digital and various kind of music.

!!Attention Please!!
Even if you want my handemade musical instruments(like RibbonController and Kaisatsuko), I can't make them for you. Because I don't have much time to make them for others. Very sorry. Basically I'm not craftworker. Please recognize me as a "MUSICIAN" who also plays handmade musical instruments.
