Shinya Sugimoto is a New York-based Japanese composer and recording engineer.

Sugimoto produces music with computer processing and acoustic instruments such as piano, which he mainly plays. He merges recorded samples, laptop-generated electronic sound and processed/unprocessed improvisational piano phrases into a complex structure of multilayered sound, creates an obscure atmosphere which is often emotional and sometimes very cathartic. Although largely based on classical methods, his musical style crosses over immensely broad field.

Born in Japan in 1979, he studied piano, classical composition and audio engineering as a teenager. He started using Max/MSP around 2000, developed a texture-oriented and improvisation-centered compositional method. Since he moved to NY in 2006, he has been involved in a number of projects as a recording engineer and a film composer. He resides and works in Brooklyn.
