東京出身。10代の頃から実験映像作品の音楽を手がける。早くから海外で注目を集め、NYのインディーズ・レーベルよりデビュー。レコードショップOTHER MUSICに「現代のエッジと甘美さ、印象的な歌心をこれほど日本的な方法で融合させたアーティストは他にいない」と評される。これまでにヨーロッパを中心に世界35都市でライブを行い、国際的にも注目されるレコード・レーベルFLAUを主宰。

Tokyo-based artist aus finds inspiration everywhere: field recordings, snippets of everyday life, old vinyls, imagined melodies. His experience in the audio world is diverse. Working in sound design, music production for experimental films and ads for international brands, he also owns the record label FLAU.
Fukuzono as FLAU owner has put together mixes for KEXP, Fader, i-D, Dummy, among other media outlets. Boomkat hails him a “consistently enthralling artist”. aus finally resumed his musical activities in 2023, after many years of absence due to burglary.
