Brief information of his career

Inoue moved to Berlin in 2018, drawn by his fascination with techno music. He now primarily works in Berlin alongside techno music producers and media artists. Inoue hails from a temple of the Nichiren school, with his father being a priest. From a young age, he was taught Buddhism and had considered becoming a monk. However, he was also deeply inspired by music, partly due to growing up in Roppongi, a town known for its numerous nightclubs.
His background is truly unique, and all his experiences have shaped his present endeavors. After receiving his initial monk's license and before beginning his final training, he took a serious turn towards acting when he was offered a role in a major drama series by NHK, one of Japan's leading television companies.
Midway through his career in Japan, Jan Svankmajer invited him to Prague, Czech Republic. There, Inoue carved out a niche for himself, securing numerous awards for stage production throughout Europe. He also spent three years teaching pantomime and performing arts as an assistant professor at the Czech University of the Arts, A.M.U. Back in Japan, he was actively involved in stage theatre, making appearances at Roppongi Art Night and even being selected as a director for a project by the National Theatre of Japan. After a final stage performance in Avignon, France in 2016, he transitioned into music, having previously composed for his performances and other theatre companies.
In 2018, after his move to Berlin, he released techno music throughout Europe. He capitalized on his diverse experiences when he directed a film in which he played the lead, composed the soundtrack, and handled all editing, earning numerous accolades. He founded "Hachi at", a company fusing web3 technology with art, and has since participated in group exhibitions across Europe and Asia.
Recently, he curated a music installation for Leiko Ikemura's exhibition. Drawing from his extensive stage background, Inoue has begun to design and install music tailored to specific spaces, aiming to encapsulate the artist's worldview. Through all these experiences, he has come to champion an art form centered on spatial design and a minimalist ideology.
