Daito Manabe on choreographing equations and making use of deep brain data

Daito Manabe is sitting at his desk in his studio in the Shibuya district of Tokyo, surrounded by books. There's at least a dozen of them on the table, and hundreds of volumes on the shelves behind him. Whenever the musician isn't traveling around the world, working on different commissions, he fills his time reading about maths, physics, and philosophy.
