From gossamer harmonic textures to lush orchestral washes, MIZU builds expansive soundscapes through her singular cello playing. Her signature stratiform style of composition, melding self-recorded layers of her instrument with electronic manipulation and experimental production, explores themes of transformation and the infinite possibilities within queerness.

Forest Scenes, MIZU’s latest full-length, is an acknowledgment of the mystery of transcendent experiences and the thrills of self-discovery. The record deftly interweaves the organic and the synthetic, its wide range of sonic densities a reflection of its diverse origins. MIZU’S debut album Distant Intervals, released in Spring 2023 on NNA Tapes, received critical praise and attention from platforms such as Bandcamp Daily, New Sounds, Stereogum, I Care If You Listen, Foxy Digitalis, and Them, and landed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Classical Crossover charts.

MIZU’s performance highlights include opening for Tim Hecker at Pioneer Works in New York, a performance at The Noguchi Museum, and appearances in Tokyo, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, and Washington DC. Upcoming engagements include a performance at Rewire 2024 in The Hague, Netherlands.
