He decided to learn how to play the drums, followed by extensive vibraphone training to craft and play his own, mostly jazz and electronic-influenced compositions. In 2009 Masayoshi released his phenomenal album “Rebuilding Vibes” on the Flau label and most recently he has collaborated with Jan Jelinek, releasing their album “Bird, Lake, Objects” on Faitiche.
