Hello my name is Yuichi Onoue.(尾上祐一)
Japanese musical instruments player, Song Writer, Music producer & engineer

Born in Tokyo in 1969. Playing ready-made and self-made instruments, exploring various sounds and music from high tech to low tech, old and new. Started playing musical instruments in the early 80's. And from the beginning of the 21st century, started playing activities centered on self-made electric musical instruments such as the electric stringed musical instrument called "Kaisatsuko" and the electronic instrument "Ribbon Controller" that can freely control pitch slide and vibrato. I am actively performing from solo to bands (Wananabani-en, Sanpin), regardless of form and genre. My music is rooted in pop / rock, but also it has introduced elements such as folk music, techno, electronic music, contemporary music and improvisation. In addition, I am active in interacting with various musicians and artists who are eager to express themselves. My activity is transmitted from Facebook, Youtube, SoundCloud as well.

!!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.
