Yoko K.


Organic Electronica - weaving the layers of hypnotic soundscape, Yoko K. (a.k.a. aphrodizia), a laptop composer/vocalist, aspires to mediate between the sensual and the spiritual life. Soothing yet at times haunting, the flow of her sound inscribes dichotomies such as nature and synthesis; future and nostalgia; urban and primitive; death and life - in harmony.

Organic Electronica - weaving the layers of hypnotic soundscape, Yoko K. (a.k.a. aphrodizia), a laptop composer/vocalist, aspires to mediate between the sensual and the spiritual life. Soothing yet at times haunting, the flow of her sound inscribes dichotomies such as nature and synthesis; future and nostalgia; urban and primitive; death and life - in harmony. Born and raised in Japan, Yoko began the study of classical piano at the age of 3, learned to play several music instruments throughout her childhood, sang at jazz clubs, and eventually started to produce music on her laptop.

Her production received numerous awards such as Grand Prize at the Artists Forum Electronic Music Competition (Electronic Jazz Category) in 2007, and New Media and Audio Grant by the Washington DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities in 2006; her debut album "012906" was nominated for "Best Album in Electronica" by the 6th Annual Independent Music Awards, and was selected for "the listener's choice." Yoko has performed for art galleries, events/happenings, clubs and festivals across the US, and collaborated with various visual and performing artists; in May 2006, her collaborative work has been featured in W/PAC Experimental Media Series at Corcoran Gallery of Art. Her vocals have been featured by producers across the globe, such as Dalminjo (Deeplay Music - Sweden), Holmes Ives (Ova Records - US), Ali Kesanto (Cheeky Punster - Finland), and Danilo Venturi (Italy). She also participates in Dust Galaxy, a solo project of Rob Garza from Thievery Corporation, as a keyboard player and a backing vocalist. Yoko is also keen on utilizing her music as a way of raising awareness for cross-cultural understanding and tolerance; her ongoing projects include "Amahoro" which features the narrative of 1994 Rwanda Genocide.

Yoko currently lives in Washington DC. For more information, visit http://www.aphrodizia.net. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
