Oral History Information
Makoto Muroi's passion for music began in school when he played the French Horn. He studied computers in college and worked on microcomputer development. While working on drum machines at Roland, Mr. Kakehashi suggested to Makoto that he explore how video and music can better work together with computer technology. After Mr. Kakehashi retired from Roland (for three months) he created a new company to focus on video and music called ATV. Once again he asked Makoto to help with both the companies drum products as well as the video products.
