She also leads the National Gintenkai Project – the performance unit within Tsukasa Taiko, the Japanese drumming program at Asian Improv aRts Midwest.

Musical projects include Yoko Ono's SKYLANDING, Tatsu Aoki's The MIYUMI Project, The Reduction Ensemble, and the Taiko Legacy / Reduction series at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and a solo album released this year, No Traffic in Space.
