Suzueri (Elico Suzuki) is a Tokyo-based sound artist and improviser. She creates performance and installations with handmade devices, instruments, prepared piano and voice, exploring methods of performing them in the most roundabout ways. Past exhibitions includes Emergencies (NTT ICC, 2008) and Web-based exhibition (Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum, 2008) and she released five albums, including a quartet with Makoto Oshiro,Tetuzi Akiyama and Roger Turner [Live at ftarri] (Ftarri Meenna 2015).
Makoto Oshiro is a Tokyo-based performer and artist. His primary medium is sound, but he also combines other elements including light, electricity and the movement of objects. In live performances, he uses self-made tools and instruments based on electronic devices, everyday materials, and junk. His installation work handles sound as a physical and auditory phenomenon, and focuses on characteristics such as vibration and interference. He released his first solo CD Phenomenal World on Japanese label Hitorri.
Yo No Bi #2 is a Full of Noises & AME project curated by Ryoko Akama with support from Arts Council England, Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, the Japan Society and the Japan Foundation.
