Yoko Konishi is a Japanese mixed music composer and multimedia artist. She is particularly curious about human perception and spatial movement and also puts emphasis on more sensitive spaces and connections between gestures and instruments/objects. She often draws inspiration from intricate electronic sounds she has created and strives to recreate them through acoustic and cross-modal approaches. She was awarded prizes in lyrical singing and composition at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris and graduated with a master’s degree from Université Paris 8. Her works have been performed at festivals throughout Europe such as the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and the Acht Brücken Festival.
