Tetuzi Akiyama plays the guitar with primitive and practical implications, by adding a desire of own to the instrument's characteristic nature in minimal and straight method.
He delicately and sometime boldly controls the dynamics of the sound from micro to macro level, and tries to quantize his physical system.
Besides making variety of solo albums which covers from fingerpicking and slide acoustic guitar atonalism to noisy experimental drone to never ending boogie, he has made many albums in collaboration with highly praised artists such as Jozef Van Wissem, Donald McPherson, Greg Malcolm, Bruce Russell, Gunter Muller, Jason Kahn, Michel Henritzi, Phantom Limb, Gul3, Tim Barnes, Oren Ambarchi, Martin Ng and Alan Licht, just to name a few.
He is also a band member of "Koboku Senju", "Satanic Abandoned Rock & Roll Society" and "Hontatedori".
Akiyama has been frequently invited for international music festivals in East & West Europe, North & South America, Australia and New Zealand in recent years.
