Bio

In 1987, Japanese pianist and composer Yumiko Morioka released an album called 'Resonance' that was celebrated for kankyō ongaku, a style of ambient environmental music. It was also heavily inspired by Western musicians such as avant-garde Parisian composer Erik Satie. Whilst by no means a commercial failure, the album was mostly found in the background of Japanese TV documentaries, maternity clinics and healing shops.

After drifting into relative obscurity, Morioka relocated to America where she lost everything in a fire. Métron Records tracked her down in 2017 in hopes of reissuing the record and discovered she was working as a chocolatier in Japan. The album was lovingly remastered and re-released in 2020 to a fanbase that had grown exponentially over the years.

This year, the legendary musician returns to her musical roots to perform the beloved album live for the first time in a long time in collaboration with MSCTY Studio's Nick Luscombe + James Greer. The pair will be debuting a new collaborative live performance that interplays Morioka's album with field recordings led by natural and urban soundscape productions. Yumiko's daughter Lana will also play the violin.

Lana will also lead a green tea ceremony in The Fields in tandem with the performance.
