MIYAKI, Asako 宮木朝子 (info)


ASAKO MIYAKI (lives in Yokohama ) graduated from Tokyo Metropolitan Senior High

School of Music and Fine Arts (piano major) and from Toho Gakuen College of Music (majored in piano performance and composition of contemporary music). She also studied composition of computer music at Toho- Gakuen and IRCAM Summer Academy (1994). Participated in Darmstadt Summer Contemporary Music Seminar, Japanese-French Contemporary Music Seminar & Festival and Akiyoshidai Festival. Her works were presented during these two festivals. She received the New Composer Award in The 8th Japan Society of Contemporary Music and was selected for The 5th Akiyoshidai International Competion of Composition.
In parallel with her composition study at Toho, Miyaki produced a number of acoustic plays (dramas) which were performed in the theaters in Tokyo. The serial works ” Echoraly” which are part of these plays are still continuing today. These are experimental works with

voice involving the ideas of space, pronunciation and anonym. In 1995 she dedicated her works for the two performances by the dance company “Leni-Basso”. There she met Akiko Kitamura, a choreographer-dancer and Masahito Matayoshi, a film-writer and they co-produced VIDEODANCE, a visualized (pictured) dance and music. This film was shown at The International Contemporary Music Festival – Lichtung 96. From 1996 Miyaki belongs to the network system “Pleroma” which is consisted of the artists in various fields (music, fine-arts, film and dance) and she takes part in its proposal-making and organization. Two concerts were given by this network so far, one of which was “Vibrating Space” realized by image and music (Lichtung 96, OAG hall). At present they continue their workshop regularly for the next project which concerns dance, image, music and performance.
Miyaki is also a member of “Genzaikei no Ongaku”, a group of contemporary music. Her works have been broadcasted by NHK, the most important national broadcasting channel of Japan. Her recent works involve the investigation of the relationship between the electronical sound and the voice.
