Kyoka

Kyoka is the first solo female artist to be signed onto the legendary imprint raster-noton and works as a musician/composer in Berlin and Tokyo. Known for her chaotic yet direct musical approach focusing on experimental yet danceable rhythms, she grew up in Kanazawa Japan, and underwent piano, flute and shamisen lessons as a child, while simultaneously discovering her passion for tape recorders and field recording. Inspired by her residency at EMS studios in Stockholm, her latest record >>SH<< showcases Kyoka's uncanny ability to deftly handle repetition, chaos and unforeseen shifts in rhythm with spontaneous precision.
