Of late, Aoki has used his own voicings in his work, released an album in collaboration with Tujiko Noriko of Fat Cat Records, challenges for minimal track that uses 4/4 rhythms with op.disc, has recorded a cover of The Beatles song “i will” for the BBC radio show “One World”, and has completed a joint-production with a contemporary dancer/image writer of YCAM fame. Although the range of Aoki’s activities indicate further expansion, the presence of Takamasa Aoki’s expression never fluctuates.
Aoki enthusiastically pursues an expansive variety of techniques of expression via a broad array of software and hardware.

However, in a word the respect and the inquiring mind to the root existence of the art expression of music keep flowing incessantly. It can be said that as an outstanding artist, Takamasa Aoki creates attractive music with his style.
