Improvised Music from Japan / Ami Yoshida


Born in 1976. Originator of the "howling voice," Ami Yoshida strives for a barely audible sound that is perceived as sound itself rather than as vocalization. In May 1997 she released the solo CD Spiritual Voice, and since then has been active in wideranging projects including albums by Yoshihide Otomo. In addition to her solo work, current projects include the duos Astro Twin, with patching synthesizer player Utah Kawasaki, and Cosmos, with sine wave performer Sachiko M; and the "strange gal band" California Dolls, with Chihiro Wada.
