Gen Tanaka is currently a Junior at SUNY Purchase, studying classical composition under Professor Du Yun. An international student, Gen spent most of his life before higher-education in the heart of Tokyo at St.Mary’s International School (having also lived in rural New Zealand for four years). Though always having a passion for music and creativity, he credits most of his current identity to having grown up with people from all over the world. In a similar fashion, he has been roommates with a painter and a writer for three years, and in turn channels much of his inspiration from other arts.
