Yuki Morimoto's musical career began in Tokyo when he conducted the Nihon Philharmony Orchestra, and the Tokyo Memorial Orchestra, among others. Since 1985 Morimoto has been working as a composer and ensemble director in Vienna. There, he founded Ensemble 9, and toured Japan with them in 1991, also playing pieces he had composed. During the 1990s he performed a concert series titled "Ex-house" at WUK, and world premieres of his works were regularly performed at Alten Schmiede Wien. He has toured Japan several times as a conductor and several CD of his works have been recorded (Extraplatte).
