ISAo. (Isao Yamaguchi)

I was born in Osaka, Japan, in 1988.

I studied music with Yamaha Electone since my early childhood.
When I was a student, I started a rock band and created music from 17 years old.

I want to support all media creators by composing music, that is my policy.
I provide music for the following: CM, cinemas, games, events, stage theaters.

The melodies I produce have a sensitive and their Japanese-style musicality has a high reputation in the world.
I am dealing with game software production companies based in China, Korea, Taiwan and North America.

In 2018, I provided the music for an independent film “CenterLine”
The film won the Grand Prix at the Fukuoka Independent Film Festival,
and received the Special Encouragement Award for Science and Technology Film Festival, as the first ever entertainment film.
Also, won the best filmmaker awards at the San Francisco IndieFest,
London IFF 2019.
