SOUND ROOM XCI
Artist / musician from Tokyo, based in Duesseldorf, Germany.
With her background in fine art, Miki Yui explores the grey zones of our perception and imagination, in the fields of music, drawing, installation and performance.
Since 1999 she is known for her unique minimalistic and organic approach towards music. From a delicate tiny hiss to a distant hum, electronic sounds and field recordings are woven into music with a narrative tension.
Her 6th solo album MILLS was released from Manchester Label CUSP EDITIONS in May 2018. She plays sampler, synthesizer and solar oscillators.
"Miki Yui´s creations emulate nature´s own structures, and they go well beyond trying, they succeed where others fail. Her music is not a river, in fact it overflows in all directions imaginable, and it seems like the sounds and their interaction describe a kind of natural evolution.
It´s like watching a web woven in time-lapse, or mashroom or butterfly. Instead of the camera or the microscope it´s the microphon capturing the proceedings from close-up. Thus we experience the energy and life itself, unbridled and unrelenting." - Tolouse Lowtrax
