Eien Hunter-Ishikawa's music draws influence from his multifaceted background, including elements of traditional Japanese music, jazz harmony, unusual rhythmic structures, groove-based popular music, and the meticulous approach of Western classical methodology. Eien has composed music for a variety of projects:

EN: a rain city streets dance (TomoeArts)
Voices of Hiroshima (TomoeArts)
Maru (Alcvin Ryuzen Ramos)
On Ensemble
Bruce & Eien duet (Bruce Huebner)
Place des Arts youth ensembles

"Eien is a wonderful composer, inspired performer and a true collaborator.  His scope of knowledge in both Western and Japanese music makes him a very special artist, and it has been a joy to work with him on so many dance and theatre projects."
