Hayato Sumino AKA CATEEN plays the piano´┐╝´┐╝

26 year old Hayato Sumino is a classically trained pianist from Japan. As if that’s not enough, he studied science and engineering at University of Tokyo’s Graduate School of Information Science and Technology and he also studied music information processing technology and artificial intelligence at the French Institute for Research and Coordination in Acoustics/Music. Whatever that all means, I do not know, but he is an engaging and eclectic performer and a YouTube star performing under the name “Cateen”.

And, he was good enough to reach the 3rd round of the Chopin Competition last year, which is no small feat.
