Yasuharu Okochi

From age 3 to18, Yasuharu Okochi was raised studying classical piano. Very early on, Okochi became fascinated with electro-pop music from the UK, especially the production team Stock Aitken Waterman, and his love for music expanded beyond the world of classical piano. He began his personal exploration of the links between music, fashion, and the aesthetics of cinema.

Okochi believes the essential task of creating music is to delight people. Convinced that working with music is fundamentally about entertainment, he taught himself music production and took a job on the Tokyo production team for the TV series Pokémon. Using the experience he gained in the entertainment industry, he became an independent musician and producer in 2006. He now focuses his creative energies on producing music and sound designs for cafes, restaurants, salons, and events. He also works as a sound stylist for weddings, parties, and receptions. Sound and music are central to how he communicates with people and interacts with objects and ideas. For Okochi, the harmony found in sounds can be used to harmonize concepts, people, and places. Working from this conviction, he creates sound environments that augment the emotions and experiences people have in relation to a given space.

He is also collaborating on ambitious international projects including sound design for the Tokyo 2050 exhibition at Paris Prêt-à-Porter, and a video installation labeled “Fubuki” at DesignMiami/Basel in Switzerland. Since 2016 he has also served as an adjunct lecturer at the culinary school L’ecole Vantan teaching about the relationship between food, space, and sound. Educating others has become a new frontier for his life’s work exploring all the areas where people’s lives intersect with the sound environments that are built around them.
