This is the duo project of Takahiro Hirama and Takefumi Naoshima. Ninzu imposes rules on certain actions in accordance with the passage of time, focusing on the relationship between action and location and the changes in how this relationship is perceived.
Naoshima started playing electronics in 2000. He explores the use of scores and instructions as methods for placing a framework on his own performances and creating a strong awareness of format.
