Yoko Konishi

Yoko Konishi (Japan, b.1986) trained as a mixed music composer, multimedia artist, performer, and singer, with a particular curiosity for exploring noise and human perception through spatial expression.

As both a composer and performer, Yoko showcased her multimedia piece "Fluctuating Beings II" (2022) at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, which was later featured on BBC 3's "New Music Show". Her composition "The Light Fell on the Wall" (2022) has been featured at numerous festivals across Europe. In 2024, as a guest artist at the Jacques Higelin Conservatory in Pantin, Yoko premiered an immersive and performative sonic work titled "Melting", incorporating melting ice, water, objects, and an ambisonic system.

Yoko holds a Master's degree in Musicology, Creation, and Research from the University Paris 8, as well as a PPFP diploma in electroacoustic composition from the Jacques Higelin Conservatory in Pantin. Currently, she is pursuing a postgraduate composition program at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna under the direction of Clara Iannotta.
