Born in Tokyo in 1985.
Japanese composer Akira Kosemura debuted his first solo album, "It's On Everything", on an Australian label in 2007 while he was still in school. That same year, he founded his own label, Schole Records, and garnered good reviews by releasing various albums of crossover genre music featuring the sounds of piano, strings, winds, synthesizers, and field recordings. Akira has composed music for film, stage, and commercials, including Embers directed by Junpei Matsumoto and starring Yuya Yagira; Haru-chika directed by Masahide Ichii and starring Kanna Hashimoto and Shori Sato; MANON, a contemporary ballet piece choreographed by Kimiho Hulbert; and Japan Pavilion in Milano EXPO. In recent years, he has worked collaboratively with international brands such as IKEA, Nikon, Kinfolk, and Rado. His works have received high acclaim from media outlets around the world, including Pitchfork in the US. In 2016, Akira featured Devendra Banhart on a single titled "Someday". Akira is currently scoring the upcoming series "Love Is__" which will premiere June 19 on OWN.
