We modern folk, living oppressed under harsh conditions.
Unknowingly brainwashed, involuntarily made test subjects.
Amidst the vertigo, fragments of memory squeeze out their last strength, flashing back. 
I unconsciously scrawled scraps of poems.

WATER BRAIN is a collaborative project that combines music and visuals to explore the rebuilding of societal harmony with the natural world. The performances use active deep listening to incorporate the pulse and melody of both urban and natural environments, creating a multimedia narrative that builds upon despondent surroundings to create a harmonious experience. The project emphasizes the importance of the often unnoticed layers that form the foundation of our society and warns of the potential consequences of their erosion.

My recent project is a new endeavor where I am creating works by combining poetry with sound and visuals, in an attempt to convey the author's intended expression with greater fidelity and higher resolution. I'm considering positioning it as 'Audio Visual Poetry,' and I feel this novel mode of expression holds promise.

Audio Visual Poetry allows the synthesis of written poetry with auditory and visual elements, potentially enriching the conveyance of the poet's message through a multi sensory experience. By integrating sound, music, imagery, and animation with the written word, this art form can evoke emotions, atmospheres, and narratives that transcend the constraints of text alone.

In 1998, through hosting experimental music sessions in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and using various effects pedals with his acoustic upright bass, Bombsun developed his own unique style.

In 2011, he founded the musical ensemble Water Brain, specializing in acoustic/electronic layered experiments utilizing visual worlds by artist Miho Morita.
